 Poor hygiene is gateway to ill-health
Amaramma (26), a labor lives in Pagadadinni camp, an irrigated belt of Sindhanur; Their house does not have a toilet and area is full of paddy fields. She got anemia in her first pregnancy due to less intake of food as she could not attend natural calls during day-hours. After several episodes of diarrhea and malaria, she finally lost her child. Janakalyan in collaboration with UNICEF is promoting sanitation & hygiene practices; volunteers identified her as a critical beneficiary and helped to get a toilet constructed. Involved her in training programs to teach safe behavioral practices on hand washing, breast feeding, soak pit, water handling, excreta handling, food preparation, flushing toilet, etc. and provided hygiene kit for her family. Amaramma as well as her old mother-in-law happily live in her hut but proud to show the toilets to anybody who comes to her house; she has conceived again and takes nutritious food as per the direction of ANM. She does regular check up and gets vaccination despite having difficulties at home as she has learnt the importance of hygiene, sanitation, nutrition and vaccination from Apna Janakalyan.
 Start Earning
Yankamma is a widow of Mr. Sanna Dyavanna of Hedaginal village of Sindhanur taluk in Raichur district. She has a son and a daughter to take care of while has no source of income than washing clothes and ironing for others. Her only son is mentally retarded and lived in a hut which was washed away in recent flood along with all belongings. Thus she is in hand to mouth situation and fully dependent on doll-ration. As part of livelihood restoration project of Janakalyan, volunteers identified her as a critical beneficiary and provided an iron box with a wooden table, a bucket and detergent powders. Though, she was not able to earn as much as she was earning in normal days but can manage her small family without depending on doll-ration provided by government / philanthropic agencies. Yankamma as well as many others have become self-reliant immediately in the aftermath of flood by the intervention of volunteers of Janakalyan. Artisans like tailor, blacksmith, carpenter, barber, mason, washer-man and wage-earners and farmers have secured their livelihood through this unique intervention.
 Small but Big
Savaremma D/o Phakirayya was a student of Grade 5 who was under the parental care of her grandmother since she lost her parents within a year of her birth in Puladinni village of Sindhanur taluk. During the flood, she lost all her belongings including school stationeries. Providing school stationeries was impossible due to prevailing poverty and Savreamma was forced to take care of her cousin instead of school almost for 4-5 months. Savaremma learnt from her fellow-friends that school kit is provided by Janakalyan to all regular students as part of flood response program; it was mandatory for the students to be regular in school in order to get the education kits, which contains all school stationeries required for a student. She convinced her grandmother to obtain a school kit from the school and continue education. Savaremma is very regular to the school now pursuing her studies like any other children of her age; she and her grandmother are happy now while her aunt is not. A small intervention has helped many such Savaremma to build their bright career. School teachers expressed their gratitude for this noble intervention which has improved the school attendance significantly.
 Education made it Possible
Ashok, a meritorious student matriculation and intermediate, is son of Shanti Biswas, a refugee-farmer from Rehabilitation Colony of Sindhanur; He faced extreme difficulty in paying his admission fee for his computer education due to sever poverty. Being a refugee-child he did not get the benefits due to Namasudra caste enjoyed in other states. Ashok learnt that Janakalyan provides education support to such deserving and meritorious students and thus approached for possible support for his admission in computer education. Janakalyan continued its critical support throughout his education period by providing necessary learning materials and motivational supports along with fee while routine costs were born by his parents. Today, Ashok is the breadwinner of his family and his parents are happily living with him; he earns more than Rs.7500 per month using his computer skill in a private firm which he says more than enough for his family maintenance. He and his parents express gratitude to Janakalyan for their timely support to be what he is today.
