COVID-19 RELIEF PROGRAMME
HELPING HAND TO 370 FAMILIES
The programme is adopted with the view of supporting the families in distress as, while the pandemic affects the health of the infected, consequently, leaving the socioeconomic life of the marginalised to the grand gradual collapse. We have managed to support families with basic commodities that can answer hunger for a few weeks. As the commutation is restricted and absolutely no income is definitely a catastrophe in rural India which demands the social work to make the ends meet for the vulnerable families. During the times of helplessness, NEED is determined to serve the needy until the times of peace and progress arrive.
The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has socio-economically impacted the marginalised communities thereby pushing them into a loop of vulnerability. The actual pandemic being hunger is a hard reality that one needs to be aware of. We, NEED-Necessity of Education, Equality and Dignity has supplemented ration to the needy families by the Emergency food kits in three different places in Telangana namely, Siddipet, Vikarabad & Mahabubabad. The kits are given to migrant families, people who are temporarily unemployed, households with more than 5 individuals, differently-abled people and extremely poor families, elderly people, widows, and financially deprived households.
We have managed to support 370 families so far with the basic commodities, we are willing to expand the area of work as the fund raising increases. We stand for the needy, we stand with the needy.

How we contribute to social well-being & progress?
We consider children aged between 13 to 19 as Early teens. There is need for the life skills to sustain the sociopolitical, cues that the marginalized communities encounter. We train them with critical thinking, logical thinking, making and other life skills which are necessary for a dignified life. Why only teens? Teens is a significant phase in life or age group where the mind is fed by the existing social, cultural opinions and stereotypes. Teens has a predominant role in absorbing societal values with respect to their surroundings. Therefore, learning life skills will contribute to a greater social changes in terms of attitudes, sense of world, stereotypes, gender equality.

In addition, sports session s are conducted with qualified experts as a matter of community togetherness and health. The salient feature of this project is offering employment, youth will be facilitated with employment opportunities based on their level of education and skill. This is achieved based on the tie ups with the parent organization and different business enterprises. As we see Employment as the invisible hand that aids them in getting rid of poverty.
MANAGING WASTE, SUSTAINABILITY TASTE
Sustainability is the notion that guides to the sustainable lifestyle and society. Segregation , clean-up drives, bridging the disconnect between the municipal corporation are essentially the outlook. Segregation of waste into dry waste, wet waste, electronic waste and making manure with the wet waste by compost pit is the key idea. Cleanup drives are conducted twice in a month in order to establish cleanliness in and around the settlements. Pollution is often the subject of debates regarding Environmental protection however, soil pollution remains as the least discussed, as a major share of marginalized communities lives on agriculture we see a need for educating them on soil pollution.
Gender justice is key area of focus, which includes equal rights, opportunities, participation of women are the different aspects of it. As it can be seen that women are being denied of basic human life in terms of liberty, decision making,political participation, gender roles, fundamental rights, stereotypical practices. We are working on making women independent in terms of economic stability and awareness on the soci0-cultural practices they have been subjected to. We organize skill training workshops which lets them claim their share in the working sector.
