Skill development is critical for economic growth and social development. International Labour Organisation rightly observes that education, vocational training and lifelong learning are central pillars of employability, employment of workers and sustainable enterprise development.On its path of fast economic growth the country faces a dual challenge of severe paucity of highly-trained, quality labour, as well as non-employability of large sections of the educated workforce that possess little or no job skills. We at Niyatee Foundation strive to
impart skill training to youths to enable them to secure wage employment or self-employment. In our selection of beneficiaries our priority remains with the disadvantaged section like ST,SC,Women and differently enabled. We conduct regular training on IT/ITES,Beauty and Hair care and other trades.Our skill development also include coaching eligible youths in specialised mental and physical skill required to enter Government/Banking jobs and armed force. For educational development we map the school dropout among street/slum children and facilitate their resumption.
To grow healthy fruits and vegitables and regenerate nutrient in soil through natural manure and save the poor farmers from the high cost inputs like pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones we have recently entered into the area of organic farming.Currently we are conducting baseline survey in some tribal pockets to know the status of ongoing agricultural practices.
Despite constitutional mandate, gender bias is still deeply embedded in our culture, economy, political and social institutions. Women and girls face unacceptable levels of discrimination and abuse, which is not only wrong, but also prevents them from playing a full part in society and decision-making. Swami Vivekananda, one of the greatest sons of India said , "There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved.It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing. "We,in Niyatee Foundation undertake several initiatives to enable women and girls find their voice,their power and their community. Our motto is reflected in Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai famous quote "I raise up my voice-not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard.we cannot succeed when half of us are held back."
This is our own programme under which we create awareness in society about gender equality and we help women to be economically empowered and create the ability of women to enjoy their rights to control and benefit from resources & assets and improve their well being. Training is given on enterprising skill to manage income generating units in food processing, apparel, handicraft making to name a few.
In all our projects our focus remains on women and girls. Our works in Education and Skill Development, Health and Sanitation, digital literacy, SHG formation are either women centric or predominantly women oriented.
At the time of when global warming is widely recognized as the most alarming issue confronting the planet earth we at Niyatee Foundation understand that to tackle this danger the only solution is sustained plantation with required care.
In our "PARIVESH" campaign we provided saplings to various schools, colleges and institutions only to develop strong sense of responsibility among students and other citizens to grow tree which sanitise our environment. In all our functions also we distribute saplings among participants and bundle a plant to each prize that we offer in any competition. World Environment Day is celebrated brainstorming on small and easy daily practices bringing big impact on environment.
Our health care activities are directed to change peoples' health practices and care seeking behaviour through education, awareness and experience with alternate healthcare services. Through our programme "sushruta " we provide awareness on acupressure and magneto therapy and conduct regular health camp treating thousands of patients suffering from ------ through these practices of complementary and alternative medicine. We also educate people through several video programs to take initial level actions themselves before reaching hospital. In addition, we regularly explore innovative solutions to local health challenges, as well as works with the government in an attempt to improve the public health services.We also conduct regular blood donation camps, awareness regarding "thalassemia",malaria,dengu and AIDS.Particulaly for AIDS we partner with State Government in launching periodic IEC campaign and workshops on prevention and control of AIDS.
Though India is among countries who are in the forefront of digital revolution, there remains significant disparity between urban and rural areas in digital knowledge and infrastructure resulting in digital divide. We at Niyatee Foundation strive to bridge this divide participating in Digital India programme of Government. A Digital Village is often seen as an idea that can help remove this Digital Divide, enabling development to reach underdeveloped regions, and the country to achieve inclusive growth. A "Digital Village" refers to that village that has voice as well as data connectivity.
We conduct regular awareness programme in villages about how information technology bring better productivity in all aspects of life. We also train people of villages on basic computing devices such as computer,tab, mobile phone, ATM etc.
Agriculture being the mainstay of villages we aware farmers on usefulness of information about weather, agricultural inputs, sowing and harvesting methods, access to finance and markets, and the facility to bank online. Our particular focus remain on achieving more digital banking and commercial transaction to progress towards cashless rural economy for which we facilitate the opening of more bank accounts and use of digital financial instruments by the rural people.
