Snehdeep started as a small organization in 1986 initially having only the charitable OPD. Then as it was observed that prevalence of TB is high & if head of family is affected, whole family gets collapse, so TB control project was started. As a preventative measure for good health immunization programme, under 5 clinics, ANC & PNC care, family planning activities were started. Team of health volunteers was trained. Along with health, educational needs were also identified. So have a strong base preprimary education activities with 40 balwadis were started, for primary classes, coaching classes started. Special classes for Drop outs and Adult literacy classes also started. To answer the needs of community Income Generation Project was started. For families with problems – Family Development Project was started to make them self sufficient. Foreign, Indian funding agencies came forward to support the programme. Sponsorship Programme for school & college children started which gave fantastic outcome by the same beneficiaries after getting order started acting as volunteers that how the small sapling grew into the tree.
Broad Social Outcome
Over the last 36 years trying to bring the changes at community level there in a feeling of satisfaction that there is a positive transformation at many levels because of continuous efforts.
The health awareness has increased percentage of immunization has significantly increased. The views towards family planning are changed. The incidence of multiple pregnancies for the want of male child has reduced. Maternal and infant mortality rate is reduced significantly. The sanitation and housing condition has impressed. But at the same time population density is increased.
In education the dropout rate is decreased. The trend of opting higher education has increased. More and more youths are getting well qualified. Overall the community shows positive changes in terms of Health/ Education/ Social awareness. We are aware all the changes are effect of many factors, but we are proud that Snehdeep has its own little share in this process. May be a small lamp but it is trying to bring light in the darkness of lives of the deprived sector of community.
