 Tanka - A Boon
Gangadevi resident of Banshipura village in Sambhar block of Jaipur district is living in a joint family having 20 members in all. In this area the rainfall is very scant, wells and handpumps become dry in summers. Gangadevi used to go with her children to fetch water from a place about 2 -3 km away from her house. Gram Chetna recognized the hardships faced by these poor people and the harassment at the hands of the well owners. We educated them on the benefits of having a tank whereby they could collect rain water. In the dry season they could buy water from tankers at a nominal charge. Gangadevi being a SHG member came forward for construction of tanka at her house, we built a tank for Gangadevi. After the construction of the tank, the women from the family of Gangadevi and the other neighbours were very happy. Now these women spare time to lookafter their children and involved in productive activities to earn more for them & their family to meet out day to day needs.
 Supporting girl child education and hygiene
Mamta Yadav D/o Shri Gopal Lal Yadav, is a resident of village Aamwal Dhani.Her father is a labourer and does not have money to educate his children.There are 6 members in the family.Mamta was considered to be burden to the family. Gram Chetna Kendra took care of the child and provided her all the facilities for studies like uniform,pair of shoes ,school stationary,bag, exercise books, and solar lantern. We also gave her inputs on how to maintain good hygiene which will result in good health. Mamta after getting all the facilities for her studies is now regular in her class and is very keen to learn every thing in time. She is very neat and clean. Her parents are also happy on seeing her good performance. She is attending school regularly.
 Construction of Toilet
In this remote area of Sambhar Block, Dist. Jaipur, Rajasthan most of the families do not have toilets in their homes and use open fields for defication. It is very humiliating for women and young girls as there is no privacy.Due to this, stomach related infections are rampant in the area. We visited the area & saw the miseries of the women. Santosh Bano lives in Banshipura village. There are 7 members in the family including two young girls & elderly parents. They are all forced to go in the open. It was decided to construct a toilet for them. Our social workers advised them to give up the bad habit of defecation in open and how it effects the environment and spread disease. After construction of toilet, the family of Santosh Bano does not have to go for defecation in the open. Both young daughers and elderly parents now feel relaxed. This also reduced the cases of diarrhea and other diseases. Now the familiy is more aware about health and hygiene problems.
