SPPD Newsletter for December 2022
We are extremely happy to meet you all through this newsletter
for the last month of the passing year. The year 2022 has just ended and the
month of December, apart from the regular activities made us ponder over and
contemplate on many aspects that impact the communities across the globe and in
particular those belonging to our working areas.
One of our major activities, the distribution of the
nutritional kits to the children went on smoothly, benefiting as many Children
during the month of December. We thank Give India for enabling this
intervention to be carried out with financial support.
Providing stationary materials to the needy children was yet
another activity that was carried out during the month. This intervention too
was implemented with the sponsorship of Give India. A total of 100 Children
received the kits of stationary material.
These two interventions go a long way in helping the children
of the families who are badly hit by the livelihood loss caused by the Covid
pandemic. Apart from Give India some individual donors also have been
supportive to our activities. We also thank them on behalf of the target
communities. In recent times we have
been making use of the social media to take this benevolent help of Give India
to a large number of people across the globe.
We come across a big
number of single women headed families in our villages. Apart from abandoned
women, the huge presence of alcoholism among men here takes a heavy toll of the
welfare of families and children. The condition of children living in deprived
conditions like of being forced to use a single set of school uniform and doing
their homework in poorly lit houses. Malnutrition also is highly prevalent
among children here post pandemic.
A sustainable livelihood support would go a long way in
helping such families. Helping the women to involve in income generation
initiatives would lead to asset creation such as goat rearing. SPPD also has
commenced a pilot project on Climate Change impacts.
This project aims to control the methane emissions from the
paddy fields that have been found to contribute hugely to the increase in
global temperature levels. Massive sensitization among farmers in the region on
the practices would greatly reduce the Co2 emissions in to the atmosphere.
So, the year 2023 would be full of hectic activities
consisting of interventions aimed at the improving the lot of the local communities
for SPPD and that of environment concerns.
