3. Ekalavya Vidhya Mandir (Single Teacher School) :

In the far reaching areas of the tribal belts Vanvasi Kalyan Parishad has designed "SINGLE TEACHER" school programme. Full participation of local people in economic, social, cultural and ethical awareness is expected along with educational development.


4. Non formal Value based Education Centre (Bal Sanskar Kendra):

Aims: The majority of the tribals used to live below the poverty line. The root cause of poverty is their illiteracy and ignorance. Through Vanvasi Kalyan Parisad in the hermitage and the huts, on the mountains and in the valleys, in the forlorn fields, a window is opened through ‘Education’. Efforts are afoot to spread formal and non-formal education and provide healthy environment for creating spirit of self-service and service to the country and society.

 To help in building all-round personality and character of the children to sow the  seeds of nationality these centres have been set-up in the remote villages. Local  young women at least 8th passed have been selected, trained and then  deputed. Two hour's teaching includes cleanliness, prayer, mantra chanting,  songs  and poems, story telling, sports, basic knowledge and language learning.


Side by side these teachers organize meetings of the villagers, specially of  women once or twice in a month. The group discusses various problems, tries to  solve them at the local level, talks about development and co-operative programmes.


5. Medical and Health Care Projects :


Even after 60 years of independence the tribal belts  lack medical facilities. Due to lack of medical facilities, proper diet and unawareness. people have to face pain, suffering and untimely death.

To reduce health related problems and to create awareness regarding healthy living as well as to educate them on various medical problems, parishad organizes weekly medical camps, runs awareness programs like AROGYA RAKSHAK YOJNA in remote villages with one arogya rakshak (Health Worker) in one village with a kit of 18 first aid medicines. Moreover, an ambulance has been provided for emergency at Kotra center.

Tuberculosis Control Program

T.B. is rampant and a major killer disease in tribal regions and nearly 4% of the population is affected by radiologically active T.B. of the lungs. T.B. needs a long-term treatment (8 to 12 months) with expensive medication and nutrition. Most of the poor tribals cannot afford such high expenses. One-third of all active T.B. cases are sputum positive and contagious. T.B. has destroyed many families shattering their economy in the region.

Government sponsored T.B. eradicating program gives least cure rate because of costly and time-consuming treatment, because of patients malnutrition, alcoholism and smoking, because of their ignorance about the necessity of uninterrupted treatment and because of want of the desire and zeal to live. With no hope, no confidence the prevailing ethos was that of helplessness and resignation. The whole scenario was discouraging.

It was in this backdrop that the Rajasthan Vanvasi Kalyan Parishad accepted the challenge of mobilizing masses for controlling T.B. in the year 1992.

Nutritive high calory food packets are also provided along with medicine to the patients. From 1992 to 2001 this program resulted in giving 89-64% cure rate. 3892 patients were cured.


6. Faith and Culture Awakening Centres :

Such centres are carried on by local saints, priests, artists etc. The main moto behind such activities is to protect their identity, beliefs, religious faith and culture. Besides this, by uniting and bringing the villagers on one platform a kind of awareness is developed to rise above cast and creed, create a brotherly spirit and, they are encouraged to work towards the development of a strong society and fight against any kind of anti-national activity like conversion.

 

7. Sports Centre Activities :

Living close to nature the tribal children and youth are instinctively interested in games and sports. Hard and challenging life in forest gives them innate strength and vitality and proficiency in several sports, games, archery and athletics. Youth is always in the vanguard for any special effort or change.

With this realization sports activities were started in 1987. Under this program boys and girls are selected and trained at Rural Sports Centers in athletics, archery, kabaddi, kho-kho and races etc.

Competitions are held at various levels, i.e. at block level, district level, state level annually and finally at national level once in four years.

Till today these festivals have proved to be the biggest non-official Voluntary World Sports Events.

Besides strong body building and high spirit of nationality such youth force can be utilized in preventing their society from all ills and anti-national activities.
