SIPRA was registered on the 2nd of October, 1995, with an objective to empower the community through knowledge and empower them to fight for their rights. Since its inception Sipra has been working in Himayatnagar and Kinwat talukas of Nanded district. 

Their areas of operation include:

  • Education: In 1996 the organization also initiated NFE centres for drop out children and re-enrolled the children in school. The organization  initiated support classes for school going children and also initiated its intervention with Village Education Committees (like activation and strengthening of VECs). The organization along with the community organized many morchas, andolan and dharnas demanding appointments of new teachers, up gradation of schools. The organisation has organized Ghantanad Andolan. These interventions were done to activate the Gram Panchayat Members, Thasildar, Zilla Parishad and Collector on the issue of quality education, appointment of teachers and infrastructure. Today Sipra has continued with NFE centres for children in labour and has mainstreamed 10 children in formal Schools. The Zilla Parishad has appointed new 4 teachers in the project areas. Sipra had actively participated in the morcha organized at Delhi demanding Right to work and implementation of CSS campaign, organized signature campaign in the villages and submitted the same to Gram Panchayat, Zilla Parishad, Collector and Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
  • Health: The organization had initiated health care services through two full time doctors in the project areas. Due to the intervention of doctors Ante-Natal Care (ANC) and Post-Natal Care (PNC) cases are taken care. 100% immunization of children and pregnant women were done. The organization also initiated health awareness programs through its karyakartas and health workers. Additionally, the organisation has introduced an adoption program (financial support for medical bills) of malnourished children. 10 children were adopted by individuals (banker, doctor, businessman), due to which 9 children from Grade 4 was moved to Grade 2. The issue of malnutrition was also discussed with the DHO, Tahsildar and the Collector, which was denied by the DHO. The organization created awareness on the issue of Right to Health and Right to Health Care among the CBOs and community. Motivated the community to pass resolution in the Gram Sabha for activation of PHC and Sub Centres. Morchas, dharnas, rallies conducted to demand new PHC/Sub centres, reactivation of PHC/Sub centres, as a result of this 100% immunization of children and women are done by the nurses and MPWs. Organization has activated the VHCs to monitor the functioning of PHC/Sub Centres and Aaganwadis in the project areas.
  • Watershed Development: In 2004 Sipra has initiated Water Shed Program in 2 villages of Kinwat taluka through Indo-German Watershed program. The object of this intervention was to improve the water level in the ground and motivate the community to yield crops which would provide them food grains throughout the year and also crops which would give income (soyabean and cotton). This program has also helped in bringing the community together and formed various committees to monitor education, health and to demand safe drinking water for the village.
  • Self-help groups: The organization has also initiated Self Help Group in the project areas; these groups were initiated to involve the women in the development of self and village and also to address the independents of the community & harassment by the money leaders. These groups are linked with Nationalized Banks for loan facilities for agriculture with 99% return of loans to the bank, as a result of this self esteem has been increased among the women, the status of women in the village has now looked as equal to men. Participation of women in village development has increased. Today Sipra is an active member of BHA and has initiated all the interventions (like CSS) in Kinwat and Himayatnagar talukas. Sipra has also initiated the process of strengthening the BHA process in Nanded District and has taken the issue of CR with 10 taluka level organizations. Sipra has also initiated Jan Adhikar Andolan in HimayatNagar and Kinwat Taluka to address the RFI and PDI issues like (implementation of EGS, Implementation of CSS, Mass movement demanding new PHC/Sub centres) Sipra has formed Shastrakund Dharan Virodhi Sangharsh Summittee to fight against the construction of Dam at ShasatraKund (HimayatNagar Taluka) which will displace 12 villages. Sipra has collected all the necessary documents related to the construction of the Dam and dissimilated the same to the community.
