NGO Profile :
Chakulia Rural Development Society (CRDS) is a secular organisation started to restore human values and address social issues like lack of basic healthcare facilities, access to elementary education to marginalized communities and need to protect the environment. CRDS operates in Uttar Dinajpur district and reaches out to several villages in the district.

During FY2012-13 CRDS organized a range of developmental activities to empower the poorest of the poor in the district. Some of these activities/programmes are highlighted below:

  • Social & Relief Work: This programme largely includes distribution of essential supplies like clothes, medicines, eatables, books etc. Nearly 120 students received books suiting their academic requirements. Besides this, marriages were sponsored. Repairing activities were undertaken for households who couldn’t afford the repairing cost.
  • Cultural Function: The need for cultural activities was identified with an aim to revive the lost enthusiasm and hope observed commonly among the under privileged children and adults. The cultural functions included celebrating festivals throughout the year. Road processions followed by patriotic songs on historic events like the Independence/Republic Day, birth anniversaries of heroic leaders are celebrated too. During these events, important social issues like child trafficking, dowry system and crime against women are presented to a wider audience in an informal but effective manner.
  • Games & Sports: Children and young adults are encouraged to participate in sports like volleyball, basketball, cricket etc. Regular competitions are held across villages. The turnout for these competitions was about 150 children during the year. Further, a survey was conducted across 240 villages in the district to identify those who were differently abled. This was done to identify the special needs required to identify the target group (children between 5-18 years of age).
  • Non-Formal Education & Vocational Training: An adult education centre was set up where 30 illiterate women enrolled in FY2013. Books and study materials are made available at the centre. Special coaching centre for poor, but meritorious students is organised across villages. Vocational training in tailoring was offered to women with an objective to make them financially independent.  
  • Health Awareness: Regular health awareness camps and free medical check-ups are organized in the rural areas. About 199 children and 499 women benefitted through these campaign during FY13.
  • Self Help Groups: CRDS promotes entrepreneurship among women through micro-credit by forming Self Help Groups (SHGs). The objective of introducing micro credit was to raise every family from the poverty line. With access to micro credit, individuals will be encouraged to start their own business and produce goods that are financially rewarding.

For the year FY14, CRDS plans to focus on building its healthcare programme and education based activities.
