Lok Chetna Vikas Kendra (LCVK) was started in Bihar by social activists who work in areas like reproductive & child health, education, social harmony, agriculture, and health & hygiene. LCVK currently works in Akbarpur, Nawada and Sirdala districts covering around 100 villages. The NGO has received support from Pathfinder International, IPAS (global womens rights organisation), and various government bodies.
Major projects undertaken in FY15:
Comprehensive Abortion Care Program: LCVK believes that no woman should have to risk her life or health because she lacks safe reproductive-health choices. This program focuses on strengthening of training systems and service delivery at district hospitals and primary health care centres. The organization promotes safe and appropriate early abortion by manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) and medical abortion. The aim is to increase women’s ability to exercise their sexual and reproductive rights and to reduce abortion related death and injuries. A 12 day Medical Termination of Pregnancy training was provided to doctors and 6 day training was provided to nurses of the Nawada district hospital on safeguarding women’s health. Around 54 doctors and 75 nurses were trained during the year. Also, over 73,000 women were educated by health intermediaries about safe abortion.
Child Education: LCVK is providing elementary education to 88 students through its Genius International School. 14 students from economically backward background are supported for a year by the organization by providing them uniform, school bag, books and stationery free of cost besides providing educational support.
Computer and Beautician Training program: A three month training program was organized by LCVK where training was provided in computer and beautician skills. A total of 90 boys and girls from the village area of Nawada participated in this and most of them are now engaged in income generation activities, either on their own or through an institution.
Mental Health Development programme: LCVK works towards identification, check-up care and rehabilitation of mentally challenged and epilepsy patients at its centre in Nawada district. During FY15, a total of 312 persons with mental illnesses were identified and counselled, 196 were rehabilitated, and 104 persons are getting regular treatment facilities.
