Environment Programme:

We had developed an environment clubs in the Villages and schools. They visited houses and help the families to plant tree and other plants for environment protection. we regularly conduct environment campaign in which the bad effects of plastic and other non degradable materials are explained to them. This year we had organised the world environment day by organizing a seminar. The women development cell of the organization organize different awareness program regularly through women Self-help Groups. A lot of groups discussion and interations are arranged with the women self help groups and tution centres. We regularly conduct awareness camps for mother in nutrition, Health and sanitation, Child care etc. These camps are very useful to them.

School Materials distribution programme:

Most of the families in the target area belong to B.P.L. family. more than 50% of the population belong to scheduled caste, scheduled Tribe, dhalith and other backward communities. Their living conditions are very poor. Most of the parents are illiterate and they are unable to teach their children properly. The poor parents are unable to provide study materials like note book and uniform to their children.This is the main reason for not sending children regularly in schools.

Tailoring training programme:

The tailoring training run by the organization is very much helpful to the rural women in this area. supported by SOEST-The Netherlands. a well qualified and experienced teacher is working as trainer. most of women use the facility. many trained SHG members purchase sewing machine and regularly use it. We provide all help to SHG members to purchase machine and to start production centres either individually or collectively.

GOAT Distribution:

Goat rearing is comparatively simple and less expensive and can be managed by women. There is very good demand for goat milk and goat meet. A new variety of goat called "malabari goat", having high yielding capacity in terms of milk and meet is identified and propagated by the organization.this has very good disease prevention capacity also. Organisation promotes goat rearing among the groups because this provide comparatively better income with less strain. The amount for the purchase of goat will be mobilized by the beneficiary through bank and will be monitored by the organisation through SHG.

CREATION OF WFW ARTS & MEDICAL INSTITUTE & ORGANIZATION OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION COURSES (Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology & Diploma in Nursing Assistant) )

With women in self-help groups provided knowledge about the importance of higher/professional education for girl children, most of the mothers have developed real interest and motivation to provide for the higher/professional education of the girl children. But, many of them couldn’t help stopping the girls due to lack of money. The ground reality is that in the changing social context, it is absolutely necessary for the girls to stand on their own legs. They can't hope to be dependent on their spouses even to meet their basic needs. The changes in the social context refer to increase in the rate of separations and divorces, dowry related atrocities, suicides of young married girls, ill treatment in the hands of in-laws, mounting tensions in families etc. Under the circumstances, it has become important that girls get equipped themselves with professional skills that could offer them employment and a regular throughout the year.

The organizers and staffs of WFW have complete knowledge about this. Hence, in an effort to help the really deserving girls to continue their studies and earn a professional qualification WFW has organized the WFW Arts & Medical Institute as a wing of Women for Women (WFW) for the specific purpose of promoting professional education for the rural girls in the area.

To begin with, 2 professional diploma courses are offered in the WFW Arts & Medical Institute – Diploma Course in Medical Laboratory Technology and Diploma Course in Nursing Assistant. Both courses are formally approved by Bharat Sevak Samaj, a national development agency, promoted by the Government of India. WFW has been successful in affiliating the Diploma Course in Nursing Assistant with Dr. M. G. R. Medical University of the government of Tamilnadu, Chennai. Efforts have already been made to affiliate the Diploma Course in Medical Laboratory Technology also with Dr. M. G. R. Medical University.

The courses were started in 2007. So far, a total of --- girls have received their diplomas in Medical Laboratory Technology course and – girls in Nursing Assistant course. Almost all of them have secured remunerative employment in their neighborhood. Indeed there has been demand for candidates trained in the WFW Arts & Medical Institute, as they had exhibited good quality work when they were sent to gain hands-on experience from private health care institutions in the neighborhood.

HIV/AIDS/STDs Prevention

WFW is conscious of the fact that if HIV/AIDS makes its inroads into the rural villages that would be catastrophe. Hence, for many years prevention and control of HIV/AIDS has been on the agenda of WFW’s health education programs for people in the service area villages of WFW. In organizing the education programs, WFW has been laying special emphasis on prevention of the infection and disease among the sexually active groups. Particular emphasis is given to educate the adolescent groups of boys and girls both in the school and out of the school. Through informal discussions with many community groups, WFW has found that people’s knowledge level about the disease is poor and deficient in many respects. It has also been found that people’s attitudes towards the disease and persons affected by the infection are quite unfavorable. There are many misconceptions about various aspects of the disease. Taking all these into consideration, WFW has been organizing full fledged education programs that include causation of the disease, methods of spread, methods of prevention, emphasis on the use of condoms when someone cannot avoid from indulging in sex, need for undergoing blood test when there is suspicion about past sexual act, need for empathetic understanding and humane treatment for the infected and affected persons etc. The services of students in the Diploma in Nursing Assistant and Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology are being utilized for this program. Free testing facilities are made available in the village situation for persons motivated to undergo the blood tests. For further treatment and counseling services, they are referred to secondary health care institutions.

Training program in attending to repairs of Home Appliances:

In an effort to help some most needy young women in self-help groups to attain sustainable livelihood, WFW has been organizing a skill training program in undertaking repair works of home appliances that are widely in use in all the villages. Totally --- young women have been trained in attending to repair works of 5 home appliances - Grinder, Mixie, Fan, Gas stove, and Pressure Cooker. This is a 6 months skill training program. Through this training program, the beneficiary young women are provided theoretic knowledge about the 5 home appliances and also hands-on experience in undertaking repair works of the above-mentioned home appliances. Through this program 1 trained woman has been made available to cater to the needs of 5 villages.

Drinking water program and installation of bore wells:

Rainfall has been failing this region consecutively for more than 5 years. With failure of rainfall the drinking water sources provided by the local administration have failed to meet the drinking water requirements of the local population. The physical and mental health of women has deteriorated and most women in the project communities have become anemic. Children are quite often affected by diarrheal diseases and worm infestations. The committee members and staffs of WFW have been witness to all that is happening in its service area villages. On many occasions, the village people put forward the request to go to their rescue by creating new drinking water sources and quench their thirst for water. WFW has responded to their call by writing up projects towards this end and installing bore wells in places where people face acute scarcity of drinking water. So far 11 communities have been helped to solve the lack of drinking water problem with the contribution of funds from water for Humanity Fund, USA.
