ORGANIZATION AND INTERVENTION

KJVS is at the learning stage we need to learn from our efforts and other organizations. We are not capable of implementing or executing any programme without any outside support at this stage

Ours is a social organization where sustainability matters most. We set our targets to achieve this goal through different objectives. We have planned to achieve the goal of rapport building and trust building by incorporating local views and people in the organization.

We need skilled and trained staff, local educated youth, a place to organize different activities, resource persons to organize different skill development vocational and other awareness generation and training programme

CONTEXT DESCRIPTION

The activities are changing the attitude of the male and this in turn will bring sustainable change in the future in favor of women. Women in our area where we work are backward and have very low status in society. Infanticide, feticide, dowry torture and deaths are the common phenomenon of this Gwalior Chambal region. Low sex ratio, low female literacy rate, low health status indicates the magnitude of problem. Needs in our community are education, economic empowerment, role in decision making, change in local laws and practices, health issues , awareness on women rights etc.

Root cause for such problems are absence of women based organization and initiatives, lack of infrastructural and monetarily support, lack of vision on potentiality of women, orthodox and stale old customs, low participation of women in decision making and economic activities

Our activities are led by women after need assessment in the area and they are for advancement of women our self help group formation helps in organizing women and making them economically empowered. Our initiatives related to persuade women to take part in decision making make them responsible. It also and inspire them to work for development of women of this region. Our awareness generation activities are making them aware of their rights and they are becoming aware so that they cannot be exploited. These activities related to education and health helps in changing attitude towards girl child and women and rates of feticide and infanticide are also affected.
