We work with mental health professionals to bring to the village community the ways of understanding themselves and others better. These workshops are in local languages to make the adults, women and children know their emotions. The activities done at this workshop are utilised by attendees to deal with day to day stressors. We also have mindfulness exercise which everyone loves because, they say, it makes them feel relaxed.

Through small meetings with 30-35 pro-active people or Panchayati Raj members from the village we understand the prima facie needs of the village community. Later an Outreach Programme is held. It is a community congregation where 300-400 villagers come together to deliberate and discuss upon the issues within the village. We discuss the needs of the village which are summarised and recorded. We try to cater to the needs or solve the issue ourselves 1st. We also encourage village communities to solve it on their own. The needs of public utilities are put across with the government officials. We also used it as a platform to sensitize the community about the various social issues prevailing in the area.
Access to Schemes programme focuses on using our Local Resource Persons and providing honorarium to Village Level Entrepreneurs to better run the Common Service Centre. To increase the coverage under various Government Schemes and to benefit of the villagers
