CAT­E­GORY: SO­CIAL WORK

Vaicharik Ja­gran Mis­sion Trust (regd.) was es­tab­lished in 2015 with the aim to make ev­ery woman self-re­liant and em­pow­ered. We or­ga­nize smart classes for women on dif­fer­ent sub­jects such as the use of dig­i­tal world, beauty ca­reer, jewelry de­sign for cot­tage in­dus­try, mak­ing use­ful things from waste, de­sign­ing ran­goli at home, prepar­ing mock­tails, train­ing classes for yoga, bak­ery and mi­crowave cour­ses etc. Apart from this, we or­ga­nize hand­made ex­hi­bi­tions for women so that they can get a chance to ex­plore their skills. To im­prove the pris­on­ers’ skills, we

pro­vide them prod­ucts with which they can get cre­ative, like mak­ing show­pieces out of soap, which can be sold by ex­hibit­ing them in the fair. We in­vited so­cial me­dia ex­perts and or­ga­nized work­shops in schools and col­leges so that the aware­ness can be cre­ated among stu­dents re­gard­ing the im­pact of so­cial me­dia. Fi­nan­cial sup­port was also pro­vided to stop the fe­male feti­cide by us. My achieve­ments in­clude be­ing awarded Moorkhanand 2016 from San­skaar Bharti as a so­cial worker, Kanya Su­rakchha award from Hindi daily Hin­dus­tan and UP Gov­ern­ment, Pt Deendyal Award and Ur Cel­e­bra­tion 2017 award as so­cial worker. For the pub­lic aware­ness of clean­li­ness, garbage dust­bins were dis­trib­uted to shop­keep­ers in Balkesh­war Mela. My or­ga­ni­za­tion has or­ga­nized and awarded var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions each year for the preven­tion of slum huts and or­phan chil­dren. Par­tic­u­larly, blood do­na­tion camp was or­ga­nized for women in which al­most ev­ery woman do­nated blood. So far, about 25 to 30 ideas have been or­ga­nized on dif­fer­ent is­sues for the aware­ness of the so­ci­ety and about 1500 women par­tic­i­pated.
