THE FULL REPORT
Highlights of the month:
During these programmes, we focused on awareness about snakes and snake bites as the reptiles tend to come into frequent contact with humans during the monsoon when their pits are flooded and they have to come out into the open. We showed a documentary to the students about reptiles’ identification and awareness.
We organised 3 self-help group (SHG) meetings and 4 VEDC meetings, focusing on alternative livelihoods which would reduce dependence on the forests.
We introduced villagers to district level vocational training and employment schemes like hospitality courses under Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gramin Kaushal Yojana (DDUGKY). Details of the programmes are given below:

6 camps were organised by us in August in which a total of 490 patients got free treatment and medicines.
