Help to Elders “Dada-Dadi”

The economic precariousness of families in rural areas, together with the fact that they belong to the caste of the “untouchables”, places the elderly and people with disabilities in a state of atrocious vulnerability.

When families suffer extreme shortages, as a measure of survival for the rest of the family members, the elderly and disabled are separated from the family, relegated to a situation of abandonment and extreme poverty.

Through this program we guarantee that they can live under a roof, eat daily, wrap themselves up and be attended by a doctor, that is, have the minimum necessary to survive.

The primary and secondary students participate actively in this project, making company to the elderly and disabled who are part of Dada-Dadi and inviting them to the celebrations that take place in the school. In this way, students learn to be supportive and respect the elderly and the weakest people or those with physical problems. That is to say, they put into practice the education in values ​​that they receive at school.

Health care

Along with education, health care is one of our main objectives.

That children can have qualified medical attention is vital. Given that their families can not afford to pay a doctor and the medicines that this prescribes, it is common that they go to sorcerers or rural doctors without accreditation, which in many occasions entails that the disease aggravates to the point of death.

We cover the medical visit as well as the corresponding medication when one of the students falls ill and needs the attention of a specialist. We also take care of first aid and carry out vaccination campaigns.

Talks about  hygiene

We hold workshops and talks aimed at the whole community on preventive health and hygiene.

Also, we conducted workshops with our teenage students about female sexuality, since this is a taboo subject in India and there are even, for example, many myths about menstruation.

Help in emergencies

This project is extended to those families or members of the communities in which we work that suffer a serious mishap and need temporary help, such as a fire, an accident, a medical emergency, etc.

Talks of Awareness

We organize different talks in the villages around Bodghaya where we inform the Dalit community about:

  • Government programs for the development of rural areas.We help them in bureaucratic procedures so that they request disability pensions, widowhood, birth certificates, etc.
  • Amount of food that should be received from the government with the ration cards when belonging to the sector that is below the poverty line.
  • Human rights, highlighting the problems with which they have to face due to the condition of their caste and where they can seek help.
  • The reality of forced labor in India, in whose networks many parents of our students fall due to poverty and loans from usurers.
  • The dangers of child marriage and the need to end it.
  • The danger of domestic violence and what to do about it.

    Water Pumps

    In the villages where we work, water scarcity and the presence of contaminated water are very common . Both factors are crucial in the gastrointestinal problems suffered, not only by children, but by the entire population. 
    To get an idea of ​​the lack of water resources, it is enough to point out that in many villages they have to share a water pump among more than 200 inhabitants. 
    In addition to building water pumps in rural villages in the area, we teach the population to take care of their maintenance. 
    This is achieved by having clean water for drinking, cooking, personal hygiene, etc., while avoiding diseases and gastrointestinal problems, both in children and adults.
