SAFE is the proud owner of following projects
1. Safety net for street children: Runaway and street children call footpaths, railway stations, bus stands and other public places as their homes. They are deprived of the basic rights of education, nutrition and good health. Besides, they are vulnerable to various atrocities like trafficking, abuse and child labour.
As a result, they suffer severe emotional and mental setbacks along with the physical torture and ultimately end up as alcoholics, drug addicts, gangsters and other antisocial elements.
Through this project SAFE conducts watchdog operations on Gorakhpur railway stations, bus station and other strategic location in search of street children. Initially we provide intensive emotional support for these children through counseling and produce them before Child Welfare Committee for further action. Till date we could successfully rescue 80 children and reunited them with their families.
2. Saving girl child: As per the reports, in Maharajganj district of UP alone 78.9% of girls are married below 18 (the legal age of marriage) and more than 2 lack teenage girls are involved in sex trade. These alarming statistics help us understand the inevitable doom of a girl child in this region.
So this program aims at the reduction of child nuptials in this region by creating awareness among the communities about the ill-effects of this practice through regular workshops and awareness programs.
3. TB elimination program: SAFE is also committed to eliminate Tuberculosis from Uttar Pradesh. Thorough this project we organize various activities to identify TB patients from remote villages of the state especially those who suffer being unaware of the ailment.
We conduct GKS awareness meetings, Household surveys and train RHCPs and TB volunteers to identify the symptomatic patients and refer them to the nearby Hospitals. Till date we have successfully trained 150 RHCPs and 28 TB volunteers who are currently working in the state. SAFE is also providing free DOTs medication for the TB patients across the state.
4. Safe Blood bank project: According to the latest statistics our country is facing 3 million units of blood shortage annually. In response to this burning issue, SAFE introduced this program which aims at making blood available for people in emergency from Gorakhpur and surroundings within short notice.
By visiting our online portal (www.safebloodbank.org), needy people can contact the registered donors for safe transfusion. In the similar manner donors from across the state can access our site and register their details on the portal.
5. Self Help Groups (SHG): SAFE carries most of its activities in the community through Self Help Groups, which serve to be the backbone of all our projects. We have established 100 SHGs in the state out of which 23 are trained on vegetable cultivation and 37 women from these groups are equipped with animal husbandry and poultry maintenance skills.
Today all our SHGs are connected with Purvanchal Bank and committed to establish ‘Gram Swaraj’ in the state.
