Director's Thought

From the Director’s Desk

I am writing a special report about our activities. The various websites on Internet depict AAG as only an awareness of AIDS NGO. This is no longer true for the last 10 years or more.

Our Focus now is on: -

1. Reproductive and Child Health, (Safe motherhood and Child survival)

2. Providing Education, Adult Literacy for women, remedial classes for children with coping problems; Life skills (Vocational training) opportunities to Marginalized Communities, )

3. Facilitating forming of Self Help Groups (SHGs) for Micro Savings and Credit and using it as a forum for giving easy to understand capsules on health, Hygiene, safe drinking water, sex/ sexuality for young un/married women and adolescent girls, contraception, saying NO to more than two babies etc.

4. Imparting information to the Public about Government schemes of benefit to people with disability, widows’ pension, Old age pension, Importance of registering Births of children esp. girl children, special benefits for daily wager Construction workers etc.

5. Legal counselling to women in cases of domestic violence, nonpayment of maintenance expenditure for women and children and drunken behaviour. If necessary as a last recourse taking the matter to court to remedy the situation.

6. Conducting Health and legal literacy camps and having OPDs and legal counselling at our centre.

7. Our programme is a replicable model and we hope to replicate in some backward villages outside Delhi.

8. We are still maintaining helpline services for STIs / HIV counselling and information and referrals.

Our laws make it difficult to change the name of the NGO. It implies reapplying for Registration under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act [FCRA] 1976 as amended in 2010. It is quite a tedious procedure and …. !!
