Building grass root level models to encourage community engagement.
Crisis: There is lack of basic facilities like education, health care, transportation, sanitation and job opportunities in states like Uttrakhand & Himachal Pradesh. Also, there is little or no development in the far-flung villages. The schemes that are launched for the betterment of these villages exist only in papers and the money is not utilized for their development.
Programs: An Association for Development, Harmony & Action Research (AADHAR) came into existence in 2011. Their areas of work so far have been in Environment, Gender, and Healthcare for Women & Children, Government Inclusion & Social Inclusion of SC/ST women. a) Through these programs they look to open a dialogue and spread awareness about every aspect mentioned above. b) Simplifying technical laws for commoners so they are well informed about the environment, government & healthcare. c) The NGO also works on policy making to make the governing bodies for people just & equitable.
Outcome: Under field based intervention AADHAR has initiated many environment protection, water conservation, disaster relief campaigns with the help of their Self-Help groups. The NGO is also involved with Post Disaster reconstruction programs where they built two colleges from scratch for a village called Rudraprayag, Uttrakhand to ensure their quality of education.
