There is so much difference in rural – urban divide in India whether it’s education, healthcare or simply opportunities. This has only been widening over the years. Adding to this complexity is the migration to urban areas and the associated problems. While there have been efforts to better the education standards and improve healthcare in recent years, the results have been insignificant. The SODEWS(Society for the Development of Economically Weaker Section) team is passionately committed to making a positive impact in rural areas.
SODEWS has added 6 govt. high and higher sec. schools in its educational program. These schools are in remote areas and face inadequacy in teaching staff. SODEWS appoints teachers with focus on English, Computer, Maths and Science.
On health, the staff of SODEWS visit 6 Primary Health Centres to counsel pregnant mothers (about 450 a week), conduct camps in villages, regularly conduct sessions for adolescent girls.
