Health & Nutrition

 

India has the highest malnourished population in the world. In India, 46% of children under the age of three are malnourished and nearly half of infant deaths are related to malnutrition. In India 8 million people are blind and 63 million are visually impaired. Approximately 25% of global maternal deaths occur in India. It is evident that there are fundamental health issues that need to be urgently addressed, especially among rural communities where quality and accessibility of medical infrastructure is very limited 

  • At Jeevandhara Health & Nutrition, we want to ensure universal access to public and private health care services for its rural communities. 

Education

 

India has the largest number of illiterate people in the world - around 268 million, a staggering 35% who cannot read or write. Less than half of India's children between the age of 6 and 14 go to school. One in every four girls in rural India drops out of school before reaching the eighth standard. 

  • We believe good education is one that broadens horizons, creates choices for the child to achieve her/his dreams. 

Livelihood

 

A critical element in India’s Five Year Plan (2017-2022) is the generation of productive employment on an adequate scale. 

  • With a focus on large scale creation of sustainable livelihoods, Ngo Jeevandhara is using various skilling and training programmes to convert rural population into able entrepreneurs and skilled employees. 

Water & Sanitation

 

The lack of safe and secure drinking water & toilets is a major hurdle in the country's growth. Waterborne diseases affect 37.7 million Indians annually. In India, diarrhoea alone causes more than 1,600 deaths daily. The World Bank estimates that 21% of communicable diseases in India are related to unsafe water. In Rural India 86% people do not have access to a toilet. 

  • In addition to the problems surrounding drinking water, water scarcity for agricultural and other use causes chronic economic and social issues. Despite 3600mm of annual rainfall, the soil and terrain of rural Maharashtra, our current geography, makes water management a severe problem.
