Projects

We are working in the remote rural areas of Birbhum District of West Bengal. We are helping the needy people with our limited resources and with the help of the State & Central Government. Some of our programmes are given here which are running at this time.

PROMOTION OF RURAL PEOPLE CENTRED DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES

The project redesigned based on earlier in depth evaluation and emerging socio-economic-political-cultural scenario, has given stress on socio-organisational capacity building, support for sustainable livelihood, women empowerment, capacity building on gender and sustainability, promotion of small groups, networking/lobbying for democratic rights etc. The efforts of Barnamala Educational & Cultural Society on varied development initiatives, progress achieved and impact perceived thereon are presented underneath: -

Early Childhood Education Centre:

This centre at Madanmohan village of Kharagpur-ii Block has equipped children of 3-6 yrs in functional skill of development. While preprimary educations in non formal methodologies are imparted to them, their articulation abilities and communications skills are developed through dramatics, role play, rhymes, songs, dances and chorographical venture. 40 children attend the centre.

Animal Welfare

Barnamala Educational & Cultural Society is very much committed to the development and protections of companion animals and domestic animals. They run a small health clinic for the animals and intend to build up an animal shelter house with in house dispensary. The number of animals served and sheltered under reporting period were 560 which included dogs, cows, disabled old bulls, goats, cats etc. The organization has also conducted health camps numbering 5 in different villages of Kharagpur-II Blocks. The villagers co-operated highly in the venture. They brought their domestic as well as companion animals numbering 416. The animals have been immunized and treated with great care. This was an immaculate service for the animals.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT & ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT

One of the prime focuses of Barnamala Educational and Cultural Society is women and their need in our society. Women are still unorganized deprived and marginalized. In our target area most of the women are early school leaver or non school goer. As such, they are not immediately employable. Our motto is to 60% engaged in their own business enable them to generate income and self employment. In view of this we have promoted self help group and provided vocational skill development training.

We have promoted self help groups, imparted the above skill development training, offered them bank linkage and credited linkage, arranged selling outlets and extended hand holding support.

AWARENESS TOWARD DIFFERENT ISSUES RELATED TO WOMEN

In our society a majority of women are still victims of family violence, dowry torture and many other social stigmas, even their physical and mental health is being neglected, they are always neglected in decision making and bound to obey the male members of the family.

They are also deprived in respect of wages, and they are not aware of their socio-legal rights. As a result they are often exploited and cornered. We offered our programmes to make them aware about their own rights, to organize and unite them to raise their voice for their own, to bring them into the process of asserting rights, greater say in decision making process and to enable them to be aware of gender inequality.

OTHER AREAS OF CONCERN

CONSUMER PROTECTION CAMP :

Consumer rights are violated from hotels to hospitals. People are given adulterated food, medicines with very high cost. Essential commodities are not available due to suppression and hoarding of dishonest traders. It's so important to organize consumers so that they can assert their rights. Our target village people are unaware of many things. Hence our society has organized awareness and motivation programmes in Kharagpur-II Block. During this reporting period the concentration was mainly on consumer Awareness. All the women took active part in this programme. They raised many questions and doubts. The resource persons cleared all the doubts and questions meaningfully. All the participants were happy. The participants requested us to conduct many more programmes like this in the future and also in other related topics too.

ROAD SAFETY PROGRAMME :

Now a day Road accidents are very common phenomena. Careless approach may cause end of one's life. Our dedicated workers have visited the schools to make this student aware of Road Safety. It's a new venture for the organization as the people are in participatory mood and intend to abide by the rules and regulations of the traffic. Bombay Road and Kharagpur link Roads are highly accident prone area and there should be awareness among people to know various aspects of road safety regulations. It's not with the urban sector only but for the people from rural areas of Kharagpur-II and Kharagpur-II Block who often travel to different destiny should know the mode and principles of traffic so that they can avoid unnecessary mishap. It's in this context to aware rural and urban population on traffic rules, Barnamala Educational and Cultural Society has organized 3 awareness camp at different villages of Kharagpur-II Block and Kharagpur Town. The organization has involved students of secondary School in this venture.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME :

We have designed our programme for youth development. Apart from self employment training we arranged free lectures for personal up gradation. We offered many programmes for disadvantage youth and we are also very much concerned about shelter building of disadvantage youth. We offered financial support to a few youth clubs and arranged games and sports.

We are very much concerned with self employment and income generation of the disadvantaged youth. We offered carrier counselling programmes along with entrepreneurship development training. We negotiated them to the funding agencies, helped them to start their own enterprises and offered hand holding support. We imparted basic technical skill and human values to them.

INTERVENTION REGARDING COMMUNITY HEALTH

The suffering of the people from a number of diseases such as malaria, diarrhoea, dysentery, typhoid, tuberculosis, leprosy are due to poverty, malnutrition and lack of safe drinking water, ignorance of health care principles. These challenges was addressed to a great extent through promotion of community health, adoption of preventive measures, health education.

HIV/AIDS Awareness Camp :

Santals and Lodha men and women generally migrate seldom to other district or border states like Orissa and Jharkhand in quest of income. They work in the agriculture field, construction industry, brick kiln, building construction, coal field etc. The tribal women are often victimized and exploited sexually at their working places. Many often they are compelled to make sex with number of men. The tribal men being away from their families, often are involved in illicit relationship with their co-female workers. Hence both male and female tribal's are susceptible to sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS. The tribal's are still not very much vulnerability of HIV/ AIDS and they are often obscured with some kind of superstitions or others. Their illiteracy and ignorance are often suicidal and their access to information are very limited. Keeping this in view, the organization has emphasized on advocacy programme on HIV/AIDS among Santal and Lodha Community at Kharagpur-I and Kharagpur-ii Block. The organization has arranged Santali Street theatre participated by Santhal depicting different aspects of HIV/AIDS from the spread to care rehabilitation of the victims and also on control and preventions.

Blood Donation Camp :

Community Health Programme through Homeopathic Dispensary :

BECS is instrumental in bringing health consciousness among tribal's and dalit populations. Through severe informal meeting, awareness camp, the dalit women and men have been given knowledge inputs on health care particularly for women and children. The organization runs one homoeopathic clinic which is regularly attended by 20-30 women and children on average. The clinic demands a magre money from the patients to sustain the project and maintain the project with medicines and other cost inputs.

INTERVENTION REGARDING ENVIRONMENT:

Due to increase in use of inorganic fertilizer, pesticide, plastic, fuel, and other pollution creating agents ecology has been disturbed largely. To combat the situation we have promoted the idea of –
1) Awareness creating regarding the cause and effects of pollution.
2) Awareness generation to stop the unwanted use of plastic.
3) Plantation of pollution combating plants (Alfa Alfa etc).
4) Use of bio-fertilizer
