In the past three months we have completed the long pending boundary wall for SANTI. Now we have got water 24/7 due to a new water connection and are not dependent on water tankers or ground water supplies. The glass fitting for the windows has been completed. We are working on constructing new rooms in the center because we anticipate more training programs in the future. The building is the center of all the activities which happen in the village, and it will be a magnet for corporate and government funding in the future. At present all the important people at the district level like the collector and other government officials do visit the SANTI building and guide us on to what more needs to be done.
Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd, which is a subsidiary of Dalmia Bharat Ltd contributed to the building of the boundary wall. This was pending from a very long time because of paucity of funds. For this project of building and improving the center we are trying to gather funds from the local organizations, and we have managed to get about 5000 dollars from various sources and we will be using for conducting more programs and improving the facilities. Please find the photos attached to the report to see the center. By organizing the programs we are trying to get help from the government and other organizations.
Hope you are doing great ! We are using our building to organize various events as described below.
Raja Mahotsava, a festival of Odisha was celebrated with high enthusiasm among the SANTI family.
SANTI organised a one day seminar on world environment day in our building. 36 (thirty six) participants from the Women Self Help Group (WSHG) attended the program. At the end food was served from SANTI.
We are proud to have a three months computer training programme for SANTI Children. Children are learning the basic computer skills under the guidance of a Teacher Mr. Golu Singh.
There is no progress in our building due to shortage of funding.
We haven't progressed on any construction acitivity due to shortage of fund, but we have conducted interesting projects in our SANTI Building.
Covid-19 Awareness Programme was organised by the SANTI on 30th Feb 2021 in our training building by the support of 'Dalmia Bharat Foundation'. This helped the community to be aware of safety practices for Covid.
An orientation training programme for NCLP (National Child Labour Project) staffs was conducted by the SANTI in our training hall on date 18th Jan 2021.
Grass root level training programme (GRLTP) was organised by the SANTI in our training hall on date 27-01-2021 by the support of NABARD (National Bank of Agriculture & Rural Development) Sundargarh. Thirty Six (36) SHG members were present in this programme. SANTI linked their personal bank account regarding Govt. benefit for Pradhan Mantri Surakhya Bima Yojana (PMSBY) scheme @12/- per year. They will be benefited by an insurance program. If there is any accident or injury the member will get benefit of upto two lakhs Rupees.
Please support to help continue construction on this building.
Not much funds are coming in for this project and so we are only furnishing the rooms and buying any new furniture if required. We had plan to add another floor in the building but that is now on hold. As the number of activities grow, we would need more funds to increase the size of the center. We would need to buy laptops/computers, projectors and other accessories to make this an even better facility for training people and creating awareness about various issues. We are talking to the government about what projects we can run in this center. Please contribute to this project.
