A health check up for children was conducted for our community. We had volunteers raising awareness on HIV/AIDS and educating the women about their rights.

 3. Conservation of Water and Environment

 DO KADAM HAMARE SAATH takes initiative to improve the water quality in selected villages through perspective planning, awareness building, demonstrations and community action. It aims to create water consciousness in the community where poor rural inhabitants do not have access and availability of this key resource.
