- CHILD HEALTH CARE CAMP
Women & Child Health program was organized intended to spread awareness among women about their health, nutrition and sanitation needs that are usually overlooked by the society.
This program was volunteered by rural women in large number and it was felt by the attendants that this kind of program is very essential for women in our villages where there is lack of adequate information about their health needs. Further they were informed about the various schemes formed and executed by different Govt. Departments for welfare of the women in all fields of education, employment, technical guidance etc.
The women who participated in the program were informed about education and its essential role in establishing self-reliance of the women. Special emphasis was given on the need for education as it lifts the self-esteem and builds character of the women. They realized the importance of education and agreed to send their children particularly the girl child to school. Further, it was resolved that the society will further organize similar programs in the near future. A Swasthya Mela was also organized by the society at the Block of District.
