Dipin Foundation was established to uplift the village communities by assisting them to learn the importance of education, health and hygiene.
Dipin Foundation (DF) runs programmes in the following areas:
Child Protection and Development (CPD): The organisation provides free entry to 60 children per village in nearby villages. They have reached out to 1,125 children over the years. DF takes care to admit children from low-income families and reserves 75% of seats for girls. Children are given free books, uniforms and stationary, and are also attended to by a paediatrician whenever required.
Health Promotion and Protection (HPP): DF organises a mobile intervention team that visits villages weekly to provide free primary care and medicines as needed. They also work in co-operation with Government Primary Health Centres (PHC). They collaborate with the District Health Services to immunise children and expectant mothers and transporting patients to Government Health Services for diagnosis and follow-up of tuberculosis. DF leads a free immunisation programme for all children below 12 in case there was a doubt about their immunisation status, and also participates in the National Pulse Polio programme. DF provides round-the-clock assistance to run a delivery assistance service for pregnant women in the local PHC.
Women's Values and Global Learning (WVGL): 150 women have joined Self-Help Groups (SHGs). With the help of Dipin's tutors, they have become aware of micro-credit.
Bio-farming and Production (IBFP): DF has worked with farmers to increase awarenes of the benefits of organic farming and has convinced several of them to turn a part of their land to organic farming methods.
Integrated Environment Safeguard and Improvement (IESI): DF sells compost from their farm as part of their vermiculture project.
