What we need from Donors

SAMARTH is working in several rural areas providing vocational skills to women and girls along with it SAMARTH provides health sessions on Anemia and personal hygiene of girls and women. Most of the girls in the village are suffering from Anemia due to a non-balanced diet because of which they face many problems related to menstruation and also the women of the village face problems in pregnancy which sometimes leads to maternal mortality.

SAMARTH want to raise awareness to 2000 Girls in this year on Anemia in 50 Village and Urban slums hence we need fund to have the session on Anemia from reputed dietician and doctors with on spot blood checkups facility. We will also provide medicine in this regard so please contributes us for healthy Girls.  

How we plan to do 

We want only 4000 Rs for one village to call a dietician, Checkups of hemoglobin and giving some medicine to girls for Anemia and raise awareness among young women.

Previous Year Work of SAMARTH

SAMARTH reached more than 650 women and girls this year through various intervention programs and also succeed to raise awareness within the society. SAMARTH is devoted to providing selfless service to the women in the villages near Lucknow city. This year SAMARTH took the initiative to give sewing vocational training to the community girls and women to make them self-sufficient. The purpose is to make them stand on their feet financially so that they can lead an independent and dignified life. These women are really keen to learn new things to realize their dream of financial independence. SAMARTH does not charge them any fee to give this training.
  • We established our very first center at Diguriya village near IIM Lucknow. The news of training spread through girls one by one enrolment started. A total of 32 girls were enrolled and the training started.
  • We went ahead and established our next center at Ghaila. The names of the candidates who wanted to learn sewing were noted. The number came to be 62 which was quite encouraging. Ultimately,47 of them joined the classes.
  • Then our next sewing center started in Lokhariya, there we met with community girls and women they enthusiastically joined the center. They were very keen to learn sewing as there were many women and girls who did not do sewing before and by the end of the session of 3 months, they turned out as a good tailor.
  • After the establishment of our Lokhariya center, we moved towards Allunagar which was near Lokhariya village. We first met with Aganwadi worker then she gave our place in Anganwadi center where we started giving sewing training to the girls and women.
  • We established our sewing center at Gosaiganj in Tikaniya Mau village there we met with community girls and women and trainer too. We provided them sewing machines and carpets and sewing syllabus. Girls and women were very happy to get sewing vocational training as they hardly get a chance to learn something which enhances their skills in the village.
  • After establishing center successfully in Gosaiganj, we went to Hussainabaad, Sarora and surveyed the community there we got to know that many girls wanted to learn sewing so we started giving training to the girls and women.
  • One more center we started in Bhudhpurva there we met with community girls and women surveyed the community and met with Aganwadi center and met with Aganwadi worker she gave place for the sewing center. Next day community girls and women came for registration.
  • Engaged community girls in Diya making an activity for the Diwali festival. Girls were seemed so excited to paint ideas. Dainik Jagran invited us to put canopy to showcase our work with the community in Diwali shopping carnival at One Awadh Mall, Lucknow, dated 4-11-2018 to 5-11-2018.
  • SAMARTH celebrated International Women’s Day on 8th March 2019, along with WOW and One Awadh Center Mall. The theme of the program was “Salute to Femininity”. The purpose of this program was to encourage females and males to talk about the condition of women in the present scenario.
  • To raise awareness we initiated discussion on various topics and in this series, National girl child day was celebrated at ghaila center and diguriya centers.
  • Team Upwell from the USA came to India to orient young girls regarding Anemia. The first FGD session of young girls was held at SAMARTH office then the Upwell team went into one of our community Diguria. The session was so interactive.
