Director's view

'The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.'

Keeping the above in mind, we at Sankalp has always focussed on the vision. It was challenging to work with the communities and govt. officials during the covid pandemic. However, with the support of the entire team the process of implementation was eased out.

The team has always worked towards providing education and protection to youth and women of the underprivileged communities and have tried to benefit them with the all the Governmental facilities. Skill development programmes, providing protection kits, conducting awareness campaigns, etc have always been on the priority list for Sankalp.

The second wave of covid was more devastating. The people were helpless, the small farmers, single women, daily workers, landless labourers could not get employment. Survival of livelihood was the biggest question. So we decided to support them by providing essential food grains along with providing the basic protection kit which included sanitizer, masks and hand wash, soap etc.

I am proud of our team, who dared to go in the villages and made door to door visits and discussed with the children, women and men in the families about the problems faced by them. They not only provided them the advice and psychological support but also identified their basic needs and asked us to support them.

Once again, I really appreciate the dedicated work of our team members who worked hard and made this thing happen while involving representatives of Mahila Mandal, youth groups, groups of adolescent girls and 72 community-based village level monitoring committees and the children and youth.
