Shree Amrutvahini Gramvikas Mandal (SAGM) was established in 2006 at Ahmednagar, Maharashtra by an enthusiastic group of young volunteers under the guidance of Mr. Dilip Vasant Gunjal, the Founder. SAGM's objective is to enable the needy and poor to lead a productive and socially useful life. This underprivileged target group includes children, women, the destitute, and youth from slums.
Their projects in FY15 were:
Amrutdeep & Amrutmanthan Project: SAGM works for the migrant workers at Ahmednagar and Pune Pimpri - Chinchwad areas to create awareness of HIV/AIDS and reduce its prevalence. It provides regular service to nearly 20,000 migrants from Ahmednagar and Pune districts of Maharashtra. It organises health camps, counselling sessions, condom distribution, advocacy, and awareness of importance of education, health, and hygiene.
Rehabilitation of Mentally Ill Roadside Destitute: SAGM provides food, clothing, shelter, counselling, and health services through its Rehabilitation Centre to mentally ill homeless people. It rescues any mentally ill wandering destitute on the road and takes them to the centre, cleanses them, provides appropriate treatment and counselling, rehabilitates them if possible, and also conducts advocacy and sensitization programmes. During the year, SAGM rescued 55 homeless people, provided counselling to 765 beneficiaries, rehabilitated 40 people, and conducted sensitization programmes attended by 934 people.
Balvikas Kendra: This is a Child Care Centre where children are provided education, shelter, recreational and nutritional support. SAGM started a project on ‘Healthcare & Education Support Programme’ focusing on their education and healthcare issues at the Kendra. This Kendra currently supports 100 children from three villages of Nevasa town in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra.
