Harvesting water and its conservation is important to bring about improvements in production, productivity and for maintaining sustainability of agriculture along with providing safe drinking water. Satya Foundation organsies demonstrations on the latest development in the field of water conservation and harvesting and helps to spread awareness about the importance of the same among the people in rural areas. Cleaning, maintaining of water bodies in villages is the priority of this initiative.
The aim of this programme is to bring about an improvement in the general quality of life in the rural areas, by promoting cleanliness, hygiene and eliminating open defecation in Rural India. Through this initiative, we are working on the issues of rural sanitization, hygiene, cleanliness etc.. We help spread awareness on importance of having toilets in each house along with providing financial support to low income household in constructing toilets in their houses. Conversion of agri bio-mass like cow dunk, & agri-waste into energy by installing biogas plants at individual & community level is one of this activity.
Mobile Rural Health Support
India spends only around 4.2% of its national GDP towards healthcare(compared to 18% by USA). There are wide gaps between the rural and urban populations in its healthcare infrastructure which further worsen the problem. A staggering 68.84% of the population still lives in the rural areas and has limited access to hospitals and clinics. We, provide mobile general health facilities on the go to rural people. Health camps are organised on frequent intervals to spread awareness and support the needy.
Beti Bachaao – Ped Lagaao
Despite so many government programmes against abortion of female foetus, girl child mortality rate are still high because of some wrong prejudices tradition among people in rural areas. Satya Foundation spreads dual awareness with focused programme about the gender sensitivity & importance of planting trees by organising camps in different villages. We organises events in schools, villages etc., where plantation will be done by the girls to make people aware.
An initiative of Satya Foundation under its name of “SAKHI BAGHPAT” is very popular among women. Under this programme we provide Free Sanitary Napkins to girls, healthcare supplements like iron, calcium, vitamin and general check-up at door step through its mobile van. The foundation also help these women for making SHGs for their self-reliant and entrepreneurship.
In this modern era, when each person is connected to the internet through affordable wireless connectivity, a farmer in rural India still does not get appropriate value for his/her crops. Through the online portal “E-Kisan Mandi”, all farmers will be aware of the prices of various crops in the different areas in the country which will help them in selling their yield at a better price of their choice.
Mobile Animal Health Support
The animal health problems and facilities to cure it are worse in rural India as compared to human healthcare facilities. Going with the concept of mobile healthcare vehicles for people of villages, Satya Foundation operates a vehicle with general veterinary medical facilities for animals. Animal health camps are organised to spread awareness about animal welfare, animal husbandry, better medical facilities etc. in association of repute Govt. research centres like MORI, Institute of Animal Health research.
