Planning & progress review meetings

DAMAN has developed some mechanism in the organization to review the integreated planning and progress of projects on regular basis for most appropriate and timely implementation of programmes. Planning and progress reviews during the year 2015-16 are as under:

Labours Day Celebration

DAMAN, for showing solidarity with labour, to discuss, appreciate and slam the labour related issues celebrated International Labour Day on 1st May-2016, at Hyderabad and arranged a walk in favour of peasant/labour from Old Campus to Press Club Hyderabad. And to show unity and cohesion with victims of human rights around the world and to condemn inhuman acts, violence, attack and assaulting of innocent humans, a walk on International Human Rights Day was arranged at Nangarparkar and the day was also celebrated at Rasani-Jo-Wandio Nangarparkar on 10th of December-2016. 

Death Anniversary of Amar Rooplo Kolhi celebrated

For making aware the targeted community about the sacrifices and contributions of their heroes and folk-men, DAMAN celebrated the 157th death anniversary of Amar Shaheed Rooplo Kolhi on 22th August-2015, at Nangarpakar, Tharparkar. The activity was organized to pay tribute to the freedom fighter and recalling the chapter history of the era 1859, and to make aware the people of the community about their sacrifices for the homeland and for the community.

Through this event, the targeted community was made aware about history of their hero and realized the value and importance of such celebrities in changing mindset of the future-generations.

Health and Hygiene

Health is the most important determinant of human well being. The underlying basic cause of ill health is mostly related to illiteracy and lack of Knowledge so keeping in mind several trainings were organized for the targeted villages but the need is in enormous magnitude as lack of awareness regarding the health.

Health is a major concern, mainly in Tharparkar due to inadequate health facilities available for poor communities mostly women and infant. In remote rural areas, especially of Nagarparkar villages the government health facilities severely lacking to practically non existent. Due to lack of awareness and political muscles these people from the remote areas have been suffering over long period of time.

This year, DAMAN organized two Free Medical Camps at Dhanagaam & Voravo of Union Council Behrano, Taluka Nagarparkar. The patients were provided free medicines, medical checkup and counseling etc. Health sessions with community and Health and hygiene sessions with school children also conducted in the area.
