NGO Profile :
Rural Reconstruction Organisation (RRO) is a registered voluntary organization serving the poor and marginalized people of seven blocks in Tirunelveli district in Tamilnadu. With North Ariyanayakipuram as base, RRO takes active part in all welfare measures of this area. It seeks to make a difference in the lives of children and women by generating awareness, capacity building and facilitating access to resources towards collective self reliance.

Main activities are:

  • Health: The NGO actively works in the following areas:

(i) AIDS – The organization aims to prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS from parent to child and to do this monitoring of ANC is vital. This monitoring is carried out by the outreach workers. Monitoring of new born babies is carried also out. The organization also conducts awareness campaigns for prevention and detection of AIDS.

(ii) TB – RRO seeks to control the occurrence of TB in the target area. Outreach activities are carried out to identify TB positive patients and ‘Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment’ are the major areas addressed.

A Kiosk facility (Axshya) for TB patients is being offered at the local Government hospital which is being monitored by RRO. Some of the services being monitored include information on TB, sputum collection and transportation, Flexi DOTs provision, domiciliary DOT to bed ridden patients, counselling services to patients and their families, etc.

  • Credit linkage to SHGs: RRO has been rendering the service of credit linkage to rural women since 1999 since it believes that it is a basic tool for social empowerment of marginalized women. This year ICICI and Indian banks have come forward to extend credit linkages worth Rs3 crores to 150 women groups.
