Empowerment for Rehabilitation Academic & Health (EFRAH) was established to make education a social development tool for society.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Integrated Learning Centres for Children: To develop their learning skills and create a positive attitude. EFRAH organizes the community to run pre-schools for ages 3 to 5 years, so that they enter primary school with adequate preparation. EFRAH is also running a non-formal primary education centre for out-of-school poor children. A parent-teacher meeting is arranged every month in order to assess the child’s capabilities.
  • Mid-day Meal: Women SHG members provide healthy cooked meals 20 days a month to 600 children in their learning centres.
  • Vocational Training:  The vocational training centre was created as a year and a half course to encourage women, develop their skills and empower them to work together to explore livelihood solutions. The centres identify a female community leader to act as a resource for the people.
  • Community Awareness Program on Right to Education: A drive to create awareness among parents in the community in regards to the Right to Education Act and to involve parents in a Parents Teachers Association.
  • Strengthening Community Groups: EFRAH created four zones with 25 community members in each zone. Of these, five representatives, including 1 community mobilizer in each zone work to identify and address needs of the community. A series of capacity building workshops are organized on subjects like leadership, communication, and legal awareness.
  • School Library Program: EFRAH has established 84 libraries in schools during the last 7 years with 10 special Rooms to Read.
  • Social and Financial Education: Encouraging ‘learning by doing’ through fun games, activities, songs, and workbooks. EFRAH also organizes trainings for teachers along with a National Book Fair for children.
  • Health, HIV/AIDS, RCH and Health Camps: Target Intervention program aimed at prevention and care service to high risk groups like sex workers, as well as basic health amenities for those in Delhi urban slums.
  • Crisis Management Committee: Peer educators counsel those in need through a Crisis Management Centre.
  • Reproductive Child Health Services: Preventive, curative and health promotion for women and children focusing on adolescent girls by providing information on nutrition, immunizations, and early childcare.
  • Self Help Group Management: Organizes SHGs with 15 – 20 members in each group by conducting capacity building workshops.
  • Help Desk and Domestic Violence: Counsellors provided to help with all services along with running mahila panchayats to provide legal awareness.
