NGO Profile :
Makkal Villipunarvu Kalvi Sangam (MVKS) which means Peoples Awareness & Education Society aims to promote a sustainable environment and empowerment of women among Dalits, tribals and marginalised families in the Virudhunagar District, Tamil Nadu.

 

Main activities are:

  • Human Rights program: This program, launched with the Embassy of Netherlands, aims at empowering women labourers who are victims of human and labour rights violations. The thrust of this program is to empower women labourers to fight their own causes through training them in women rights, domestic bill, Panchayati raj and legal aid.
  • Children’s Home: Initially this program started with 30 orphan children, victims of fire accidents and HIV/AIDs, who were picked up from the streets and were sheltered in a small rented building. MVKS has now constructed the Grace Children Home through donor support to provide shelter to orphans and has accommodation facilities for 76 children.
  • HIV/AIDS Awareness Program: The main thrust of this program was awareness of HIV/AIDS through Peer group educators. 50 peer group educators were identified and given special training in HIV/AIDS. Labourers of 4 Industrial units of Sivakasi attended an awareness program conducted by the peer group educators.
  • Scavengers Awareness Program: This program enables the scavenger community to get access to education, economic development, social justice, self reliance and health through skill development, awareness, counselling, guidance and rehabilitation program.
  • Free Child Education Program: MVKS supports children to enjoy their right to education. MVKS offered study materials to students studying in government schools and they have even started evening tuition centers in 5 villages. During the year they distributed notebooks, school bags and uniform dresses to 50 poor students.
  • Environmental Awareness Program: MVKS participated in the National Environment Awareness Campaign in which 20,000 tree saplings were planted in the school campus and roadsides by students. The Self Help Group women and students helped in cleaning up the ponds and planted trees around the ponds. MVKS also organized a climate change awareness program.
