JBGVSaims at integrated development of 75 villages, to be carried out by the villagersthemselves, and under their own leadership by forging partnerships with the Government,local institutions and NGOs. This year, JBGVS has started working in 90 villages of Wardhadistrict in association with local NGOs on specific need based projects such as naturalfarming, sanitation, etc.
During the year, JBGVS implemented several programmes to strengthen primary educationand primary health care, improve socio-economic conditions, and develop the environment.Out of a total of 39,000 beneficiaries through our programmes, about 75% were fromeconomically weaker sections. Of these, 16,400 beneficiaries belong to socially backwardsections (5,900 Scheduled Caste and 10,500 Scheduled Tribe), 2,600 to Nomadic Tribe and5,560 to Other Backward Classes. The focus of all the initiatives has been to providesupport to economically weak and socially neglected communities, i.e., Scheduled Caste,Scheduled Tribes, and families below the poverty line.
Primary education has been the major area of intervention in the villages. Support hasbeen provided for infrastructure development in primary schools and anganwadis(pre-primary schools). School rooms have been repaired and furniture and equipment havebeen provided to both primary and pre-primary schools. Special efforts were taken to checkmalnutrition by conducting awareness and training programmes for mothers on the importanceof breast feeding, nutritious food using local materials, special check up camps,supporting VCDs, etc. Non-formal educational programmes for children in primary schoolswere organised by involving secondary school students from the villages.
