Lakshyam works to fulfill basic human needs of the destitute (with a special focus on women and children) and empower them through its four major programs, Rooh, Butterfly, Toy Library, and Aarogya. Lakshyam’s continuous efforts, kind donors, determined volunteers are together helping to fulfil its mission towards an environment of equality and freedom. Lakshyam identifies communities which are in dire need of an intervention. We provide aid in order to strengthen the community to a level that they are able to sustain themselves without any outside intervention in future. Following is a glimpse of the areas where we work.
This was our first centre which we have closed after being there for 5 years as we believed that community was aware enough to send their next generation of children to school , their collaborative health camps were tied up , women were employed and empowered and 90% of the children were going to the nearest govt school.
Majorly the entire community works in traffic signal either begging or selling toys as a source of their livelihood. Around 200 families are staying in tents for over 30 years with no access to basic water. They have to buy water to drink or wash so eventually they don’t take a bath for 10 days or wash their hands after going to toilets or wash utensils. Only 7 children go to school in the entire Basti. We have been working here since last 4 year. We have been working here for the last 4 years. No toilet, open junkyard of the nearby bushy area is their toilet. When we ventured not a single child was going to school and in the last 4 years, 35 children have been enrolled in school.
The community comprising majorly of rag-pickers and daily wagers. Around 70 children since the last 5 years have been taking bridge education at our centre. wherein we are targeting to put 15 most bright children to a private school as a govt school in this area just as a name with no education. Education level in the form of school enrolments is quite low, none of our students goes to a formal school. Like in earlier Basti they don’t have water in this area electricity is a major issue. We have completed 3 years of our work in this area. Along with children the women here specialized in tailoring and are manufacturing 5000 cloth bags every month.
This centre is in collaboration with the Delhi Police. We ventured into this area and our centre is in the old building of the police station itself. Being situated in the political capital of the country the Basti is yet to develop. The prevalence of orthodox mindset, low levels of education amongst other reasons are a few factors that need to be worked upon and inculcating a new thought process. The area is overpopulated with mixed gently, letting children involved in a lot of minor criminal activities wherein we stepped in to provide them counselling and right direction in their life.
The latest venture Umri village, is considered to be the remotest of all villages in India, is located in Guna Tehsil of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is situated 12 km away from Guna, which is both district & sub-district headquarter of Umri village. Umri has a total population of 3,413 peoples. In the Village, both men and women are involved in varied professions like farming, daily wagers. But being a village not much option is available to work. The area has access to water, house and electricity. However, the major problem is in the form of women empowerment, the orthodox, patriarchal prevalence in the area.
Ranchi is the capital of Jharkhand, and we are working around the outskirts of villages in and around Ranchi for their development.
