Kandhamal Zilla Sabuja Vaidya Sangathan (KZSVS) works for socio economic development of the underprivileged and vulnerable communities by focusing on areas such as conservation of biodiversity and natural resources, disaster management, livelihood and women empowerment and self-governance.
i) School to School: In partnership with Goonj that builds a relationship of empathy and dignity between urban and rural students, on two opposite sides of a big divide of resources and opportunities. ii) Millet Mission: Odisha's millet mission was launched in 2017 with a hope to revive millet farming and promote the same. The aim is to tackle malnutrition by introducing millet consumption in the Public Distribution System (PDS) and other state schemes. Four main objectives of this mission are production, consumption, processing and marketing. iii) Footwear Donation: KZSVS started this initiative after noticing that there is a shortage of footwear in the remote areas of Odisha, which was also a chief reason for students to leave school because in summers the temperature shot up to 45 degrees. This eventually led to soil transmitted diseases. The organization now distributes footwear annually. iii) Vitamin Angel: This program helps at-risk population especially women who are pregnant, new mothers, children under the age of five. The main objective is to gain regular access to healthcare and nutrition for those without it. This also helps with reducing the mortality rate amongst children with malnutrition or any other at-risk illnesses.
Impact in 2020: 75 schools covered and 13,000+ students helped under School to School; Over 11,000 children and 2,000 pregnant women served under Vitamin Angels
