Challenge

Lack of knowledge on sex, sanitation, hygienic, safe sex, unwanted pregnancy, infective disease, Anemia, uterus and breast cancers exist among Tribe, Dalit and rural people. Pregnancy and unsafe abortion is main cause for various health issues for adolescent girls. No condom using, no sex knowledge, no safety and rights on RCH because all are as moral matter under fear and screening. They are lack of nutrias and so anemia and STD exist. Not going to hospital and health centre.

Solution

Motivational training for women and girls, testing and referral to hospital, provision of nutrias and sanitation materials, educational events in school, community village centers, SHGs meeting, forest group meeting, personnel counseling and family counseling. Testing and health service center as camp are being provided in the villages. We are reaching 2000 in first year and can increase in the succeeding year in your support. Insisting for compulsory testing, treatment and delivery in hospital.

Long-Term Impact

Reproductive health services can make a positive impact that reaches across generations. The ability to plan pregnancy is linked to increased education and work opportunities for women and better health for women and babies. However, teen mothers tend to drop out of school, and most families of young unmarried mothers tend to live in poverty. Providing reproductive health services to low income women breaks cycles of poverty by empowering women to manage their health and achieve successful live
