What is the first thing that pops in your head when you hear the word ‘ Smart ‘? City right?.
Well congratulations on being amongst the rest 90% people. But going into perspective, what is a smart City. Smart cities use data and technology to create efficiencies, improve sustainability, create economic development, and enhance quality of life factors for people living and working in the city. To put in simple words, a city convenient, peaceful, and attractive for people from all backgrounds and beliefs.
Since the digital age is booming, more cities are converting to ‘Smart Cities’, but then a question arises, why are the villages are not being converted to ‘Smart Villages’? Given the statistics and the conditions some of the villages are in the current day, it’s of utmost importance to give a head there.
We know that it’s 2020 now and the 20-20 vision for India was highly looked up to, but as of today India is still a developing country; and the issues of a village are far more concerning than that of a city. Firstly, the percentage of illiteracy, mostly amongst women and children, has shown not many signs of reduction. Moreover, India is considered as an agro-based economy, which means these villagers play a vital role in the GDP and the overall economy of the country. Additionally, they face many other problems such as lack of healthcare, education, infrastructure and many more.
We, the Samagra foundation, have taken an initiative to change those statistics and situations by starting skill development centres and health check-up camps 5:1 villages to impact more lives and provide the accessibility. The skill development programs are categorized according to the demographs.
For children and upcoming youth, we are running Project Vinaya in schools, providing a library along with digital training, empowerment training based on their respective capabilities, entrepreneurial training and guidance and also career counseling for the adults
Moreover, for women, along with the above we also cater to Skill development programs like
*Laghu udyog groups with marketplace
*Awareness of their rights.
*Health awareness program
*Empowerment Training based on capabilities.
*Entrepreneur training and support.
Educational programs depends on growth…
