We work with the rural and urban communities for forming and strengthening community-based organizations, promoting livelihood opportunities, management and development of natural resources, improving health and education status of the community, protecting and promoting rights of the children, empowerment of women and building capacities of the communities to raise and manage resources independently. We also work with other Networks, Government and other partner organizations to influence and promote child rights.
Community health is one of the most important aspects to be covered by the government. It is that part of public health that focuses on the study, protection, and health improvement within the community.
Official statistics place the number of domestic workers employed in India as 4.75 million (of which 3 million are women), but this is considered a severe underestimation and the true number to be between 20 million to 80 million workers! Women count for over 70% of domestic workers.
