Health and Education

Our all programs aims to provide sustainability and education to all and help needy people to become a responsible person of a society and nation.

Education

Basically we are indulged in two basic human needs, these are Health and Education. Without these we cannot think of a human life. Health gives us sustainability and education helps us to become a responsible person of a society and nation. But still many people are still left behind to achieve these basic human rights.

PROMOTION OF EDUCATION

Making education a reality for every child is not an easy task. Holistic change in the lives of children is only possible when we tackle the root cause that continues to keep our children illiterate and vulnerable.The major activity driven by Scawin indulges in non-formal education, admission drive and advocacy. Education is one of the best means of intervention in helping the community and children to develop themselves and to be groomed into good citizens. It is the most crucial investment in human development. Education strongly influences health, hygiene, demographic profile, productivity and all that is concerned with the quality of life. It plays a major role in improving economic opportunities for people, and enhancing their life style and skills and providing more productive employment. Scawin reaches in slums and resettlement colonies of Delhi to promote and access to free education for children and enroll in schools in their neighborhood. Hundreds of children are enrolled for pre-schools. Dropout students are encouraged and re-registered back to formal schools.

ADMISSION CAMPAIGNS

Scawin organizes Admission Campaigns in the resettlement colonies and leprosy colonies to concertize the community on sending their children to access education. Admission campaigns are very much beneficial for the illiterate parents as Scawin staff enables them to complete the admission procedures.

Health

The impact of poverty on health is a key focus of public health. It’s a major concern that many of the disparities in the health status is by income and documented a stair step pattern of worsening outcomes from rich to poor that holds true for almost all risk factor, diseases, and causes of death, and persist with racial and ethnic group. People living in poverty have a higher prevalence of disability and chronic illness and shorter life expectancy than those at higher income levels. Leprosy/Disability is not a curse. SCAWIN has been working with differently able people to enable and enhance the abilities and touch and transform their lives. SCAWIN strongly believes in the community based rehabilitation of persons with different abilities.

COMMUNITY HEALTH CARE

HEALTH EDUCATION

SCAWIN undertakes health education as a means of raising health awareness among children, women and the community. This is done primarily through the help of volunteers and health workers in the project areas. Various aspects of health like nutrition, cleanliness, common diseases, preventive health care, immunization etc are discussed in detail during the health awareness programs.

FREE EYE CAMPS

Eyes are the most important part of our body and without this we cannot imagine the colorful life in which we exist. Rarely are they approached for any eye related issues as most of the hospitals deny their admissions because they are affected with leprosy. Our major concern will be to organize eye camps in the leprosy colonies to identify the people with cataract and then further provide treatment to the people identified. Along with this free medicines and spectacles will be distributed to the people with eye ailments.

FREE SKIN DISEASE CHECKUP CAMP

To eradicate the leprosy disease and to introduce the children of the leprosy communities to the mainstream society and making them self dependent society plans to organize skin disease checkup camps in the leprosy colonies to identify the symptoms of leprosy in early stages and provide possible care and medicines to the infected person.

AWARENESS

MOTHER AND CHILD CARE CAMPS

SCAWIN often organizes mother and child care camps where expectant mothers and lactating mothers receive due advice and suggestions on medicines and nourishments they should take. They are also made aware of the preventive measures against some common illnesses that affect the mother and child. Other services like Mental Health Camps, DOTS Centre, etc are still continued as a part of our intervention. Although these programs offer valuable assistance to help low-income individuals obtain necessary medical care, the deficits in access and coverage faced by the low-income population are not easily overcome. With the periodic services provided with the support of our partners, we tend to march ahead.

OTHERS

REHABILITATION OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITY

Vulnerability is the situation of powerlessness and inability to attain the rights and privileges. This vulnerability is the root cause of marginalization. Leprosy affected people constitute the major portion of the vulnerable section of the society. Thus there is a need of transformation when it comes from within. We believe in inclusive growth and look forward to build an inclusive society; we have our strong focus on rehabilitation of people with disability specially leprosy. They are the major victims of marginalization and it makes their life pathetic due to isolation, insecurity, health problems and economic instability. All year around, we try to give various services to the people with disability in all the areas that we work. Assessments follow ups required, referrals etc are a basic method that we follow to reach out and as per requirement we deliver them with the services required through the collaboration and assistance of other partnering NGO’s as well. The major activities undertaken by SCAWIN for leprosy affected families are medical and advocacy. For that purpose SCAWIN arranges medical consultation camps. Under the initiative of SCAWIN eye camps are also organized and needy elderly persons are referred for cataract surgery.
