Love and Care India Trust (LACIT) was established in 2005 to serve the less privileged community of Nagpur. They focus on assisting children with special needs, at-risk youths, women in distress, and destitute and elderly people by creating opportunities to become active participating members of the community.
Their activities are:
LACIT Convent School: It serves the at-risk slum and street children by providing education with a holistic approach. Nearly 30 to 40 children (age group of 3 to 8 years) are admitted every year. The school provides free pre-preparatory education, environmental education, health and nutrition care, games, sports, and fun activities like dancing and singing. With the support of Saraswat Bank, free books are distributed to many children. The District Sports Authority Office, Nagpur, provided a grant in FY15 for spreading awareness on sports among youth.
Women Empowerment: The NGO conducts workshops in selected slum areas and encourages formation of women Self-Help Groups (SHG) for their sustainable growth and development. This is an attempt to encourage the village women to take the benefit of collective bargaining and management. This will help women in employment generation, poverty alleviation, and community empowerment. Various programmes are organized for providing skills to the SHG members (eg. tailoring and stitching). With the support of USHA International, so far 10 sewing machines have been distributed to rural women for promoting entrepreneurship skills.
Health Camps: The NGO organized an eye check-up camp in June 2014, wherein identified patients were distributed free spectacles and some were even treated for cataract surgery. General health camps are organized to check skin diseases, stomach problems, provide care to children and lactating mothers care, senior citizens, etc., and provide free medicines to the patients. The NGO does needs assessment in selected slum areas and conducts workshops on HIV/AIDS awareness, family planning, drug de-addiction, sanitation practices, food security, etc.
