Working closely with people living in the Ward 59, 65 & 66, Ektara develops and delivers Programme and initiatives that respond to their needs and supports the communities.
Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success.
The objective is to create an environment for our community partners to help them establish their priorities and support sustainable development.
Udaan – Vocation Training Project
Launched in 2011, this Programmememe was started with a small group of mothers keen on acquiring stitching skills enabling them to work out of their homes. The total strength of the Programmememe is 75 women.
Unmukt – Adult Literacy Project
Ektara launched its Adult Literacy Programmememe (ALP) in March 2017- with a group of young mothers and support staff from the community itself. The first batch consists of 15 women who come to our centre four times a week.
Chakke Pe Kaksha Project
The mobile school or Chakke Pe Kaksha, is a cart on wheels with extendable blackboards. The primary goal here is to stimulate and develop a stronger identity and positive self-image, in order to make conscious, well-informed and future-oriented decisions.
Income Generation Project
Women who wish to stay on at Ektara even after vocational training are involved in production in-house and all products are sold through exhibitions across the city.
Increasing numbers of young people are trapped in urban poverty, without the skills they need to build themselves a better life. Ektara works on ways of providing skills based training.
To ensure that other interventions met with success a Community Mobilisation Programmemememe was becoming increasingly necessary. We take regular assessments of our beneficiaries by collecting household data and evaluating the worthiness of their sponsorship. Due to this Programmemememe we are also able to share information with stakeholders for the advancement of our initiatives and get a better understanding of our impact.
417 students participated in the camp held with the help of volunteers from Modern High School for Girls.
Mosquito Awareness Programmeme
An interactive session was held with the students and their parents about taking preventive measures against mosquitoes.
The non-formal students headed the painting project under the topic ‘It’s a very joyous mural’ in October and enhanced the beautification of our centre.
Personal Hygiene Distribution Drive
Kits containing hygiene products like Medicare, toothbrush etc were handed out to all the students and members of staff in August.
