Journey towards Sustainable Development

The last three months have witnessed unprecedented events with the Covid19 pandemic crisis taking a heavy toll of the lives of people belonging to all sections here. In particular the daily wager families have been put to unimaginable misery due to the lockdown enforced as part of containment of the spread of the virus.

All the parents of the youth who form part of our rural youth skill project are daily wage earners and many of them are seasonal migrant laborers. And the COVID19 lockdown has completely shattered their livelihoods. As transmission of the viral infection is the prime most concern to prevent community spread, SPPD has been actively sensitizing the youth and through them their family members by tele –calling on the importance of prevention.

Awareness generation are done on the vital preventive aspects of physical distancing, wearing masks and hygienic practices such as frequent washing of hands with soap etc. 436 Sanitation kit were distributed to families depended on daily wages . Food kit comprising of dry rations also have been given to 484 families depended on daily wages. We had distributed the food kit sponsored by our donors. These grocery kits have helped the families of the youth to manage their daily food needs for around a month during the lockdown period.

This apart, online classes also have been conducted by the skill training institutions concerned to which the youth are attached so as to ensure the youth do not miss the theory classes during the period. SPPD takes care to equip the youth with the vocational skills by conducting the online classes with the help of Google Meet and Zoom apps.
