Uttarakhand - Activities
We are spread across 16 villages of Bhagwanpur Block at Roorkee Uttarakhand. The work at Roorkee ranges from being the MNGO in Haridwar district and the District ASHA Resource Centre, to agro based livelihoods and skills training with farmers and youth respectively. We also run the non- formal education centres (NFEs) to mainstream the children in schools.

Health is a matter of concern for the villages in Roorkee. The hygiene levels are low coupled with low education levels and minimal infrastructural facilities. We have tried to integrate our programmes in Roorkee so that the benefit of our prgrammes reaches the maximum number of people. Being the MNGO and District ASHA Resource Centre, we have been able to train ASHAs of the district and be the resource centre for them. The sakhis (ACF’s village based health functionaries) have also been trained in clinical and preventive care complementing the work of ASHAs in the region.

Roorkee has numerous industries which has created the need skilled personnel. The Skill and Entrepreneurship Development Institutes (SEDI) promoted by ACF provides training in short and long term courses. The welder training course at SEDI has attracted numerous youth. Please visit our SEDI page for more information on skill training.

Since farming is the predominant area of work, regular training with farmers along with field based training and exposure visits are conducted. Organic farming has been recently introduced complemented by vermin compost techniques. Bee keeping has also been introduced in the region. We also work with the women in the region helping them to save and begin their own busineeses. For more information on our work in Uttrakhand, please read the attachment.
