Hello Friends,

We are doing many activities in our Santi Empowerment Center. Here are few activities.

  • We are planning to create a skill development training program under PMKVY (Pradhan Mantri Kushal Vikash Yojana). A meeting with young ladies was conducted and moving forward in positive direction.
  • 45 days of computer training was conducted by Santi with help of Nehru Yuva Kendra. This training was provided to 25 young girls and boys of local community who need help. This kind of computer training is not possible without Santi’s help.
  • On international yoga day, we conducted a yoga and meditation training to all our kids. This early program provides an exposure to mental peace and physical fitness. We will try to incorporate that in our daily routine as we do our morning prayers.

Due to scarcity of funds, the building construction is not progressed well. We are in serious need of funding close to $ 12,000. Please extend your gratitude to complete this building construction.

Dear Friends,

SANTI Empowerment Center is the prime location to organize many activities. Completion of this building is vital to operate our various activities.

Following important events were organized recently:

  1. On March 13th Swachha Bharat Health Awareness program was carried out and many attendees attended this event. The main theme for this event was to create awareness of health related issues to rural public. SANTI Students performed dance, Speech competition and toilet usage to create health awareness.
  2. Various sewing training programs are ongoing in this building. These programs have been generated lot of interest among poor young girls and they are able to stitch Indian dresses such as Salwar Suit, Blouse and soft toys etc. This training center is a perfect venue to make them successful in learning and earning money.
  3. SANTI organized a free computer training program for poor rural young people. There were 30 students benefitted by this program which was run in this building.

 Unfortunately we couldn’t progress towards completing this building as shortage of funding. Please come forward to support this work.

SANTI has been assigned to start skill development initiative under Pradhan Mantri Kousal Vikash Yojana (PMKVY) & National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) on General Duty Assistance (GDA) and is planning to train 25 participants in the first batch. As per the requirements of "PMKVY" we are planning to install CCTV and Biometric device in the training hall. We have also purchased 30 desks for the above initiative.

The Additional District Medical Officer (ADMO) with his staff visited on date 19 Nov,2016 our training hall for field appraisal on community process (training to urban slum dwellers on community health). We had applied for this earlier.

To complete the SANTI center so that training can happen for all the above programs we need about 10000 USD for the below stuff.

1) Bore Well

2) Safety tank

3) 3 Bathrooms

4) Verandah

5) Stair Case

6) Boundary Wall

7) Sanitation

This is holiday season and Global Giving has a lot of matching opportunities, please donate so that we can complete the center in the next 3 months.

Hello Friends 

Hope you are doing well, we would like to share our progress and achievements in past few months regarding the progress of constructing the Empowerment Center.

  • Thanks to our generous donor, as we have bought 12 bed frames will be used by SANTI children to sleep. Currently they don’t have bed to sleep due to space issue.
  • We are continuing to provide sewing training to needy teenage girls. This empowerment center provides a one stop center to organize various social activities. Because we have our own building we can do many pretty beneficial social activities.
  • We have applied for funding to government authority to train unemployed poor youth from our area. Based on our capabilities and experiences we are hopeful to get this new social work funded by Government.
  • Regarding the Empowerment Center construction, we finished remaining 7 windows, glass fitting with paintings.
  • Installed 2 wall racks/ Almira with glass fittings to house so that soft toys made by SANTI students can be displayed.
  • 30 truckloads of clay were filled up in front of the building to bring soil to the same level. 

We need your donation to construct a bore well for water supply, Verandah, Stair case to roof access, Boundary wall etc. Please do support through globalgiving.com.

With Gratitude

Hello Friends

Hope you are doing well and preparing for upcoming Memorial Day weekend. It is reporting time for the building construction project.

This building is proudly serving as a center for SANTI’s activities. We are progressing on sewing and alteration training to local girls and many of them started earning money from their work. In parallel, we have successfully completed to educate about 600 women from Mahila Arogya Samiti (MAS) group dedicated to women health and hygiene. We also trained key group leaders on accounting and expense reporting while managing their group.

Due to our strong credentials and performance of SANTI National Urban Health Mission (NUHM) selected SANTI to expand our help to MAS based in nearby cities such as Sundargarh and Rourkela.

In addition to this, Rourkela City Program Management Unit (CPMU) has selected SANTI to educate local citizens through folk programs and media show.

So far we have completed numerous health awareness programs that educated more than 10,000 people. The main theme of these programs are immunization awareness, birth control, child health program, use of safe drinking water, awareness for Dengue, Malaria, Diabetes, Cancer and hypertension etc.

Hence, you can feel the urgent need to finish this building construction. We need your support for completion of this building so that we continue to do great work in future.
