We organized a one day training program for Fani affected community in Karimpur, Bramhagiri, who have began to rehabilitate and strengthen their livelihood avenues. Our objective is to help them in adopting organic farming technique and ensuring nutritious food & clean drinking water to women and children. We have initiated a series of workshop on organic farming. The training focused on these core learning:-

  1. Preparation of Organic manure
  2. Preparation of organic pesticide and innovative and non threatening techniques to keep away cows and buffaloes from field.
  3. Bed preparation for vegetable cultivation in kitchen garden
  4. Effective and cost effective method of water purification.

In our endeavor, we were assisted by Ms. Sabarmati from Sambhav NGO.

Summary

The Cyclone "Fani" has resulted in minimum casualties, but delay in access to essential services and destruction of personal assets and means of livelihood has made a huge dent in people's mind. The most discrete and yet the most severe victims are the children. The calamity has brought onto them, an unforgiving memories and distress, a psychological stress and fear. During our assessment, we have interacted with the children who narrated us a vivid flashback of their nightmares. Many of them suffer from Post traumatic stress. Delay in access to basic needs, including shelter, clean water and electricity in summer has just exaggerated their plight. 

Aaina is determined to intervene, not just through materialistic relive approach but with healing hands. We are conducting psychosocial therapy for these young minds, so that they could at least feel the presence of hope. We have started our approach with letting them release their stress through various vocal and physical activities and let them release their vivid memories in form of art.

Our Target

Our operation began in Raipur and Barakudi village in Puri district of Odisha, targeting 150 children to begin with

Our Approach

The Psychosocial Therapy/Counseling that we have adopted involves systematic reduction of their stress and their latent distress through a series of sequential vocal and physical activities. The reduction of their stress and their reluctance, which will lead them to a calmer mind and then we begin our next stage of operation, that is, to and let them release their vivid memories in form of art. We adopted various method of arts/Drawing that isn’t artistic but potent enough to make revelation about their state of mind.
