A sustainable change starts from the very root. And strengthening that is the Cluster Development Plan by CInI. It focuses on providing quality education which would will lead to irreversible prosperity. Their Mission Programme aims to significantly impact the quality of education in 500 schools. This year, the programme worked in 113 schools with 10,000 children, and enhanced learning levels in language, mathematics and environmental studies by 15-20% from the baseline among secondary schoolchildren (grades 8th – 10th).Pilot initiatives included: 
  • Comprehensive programme for overall improvement of schools and children’ learning levels through a ‘cohort’ approach
  • Training the most qualified community youth to become learning assistants and facilitators
  • Designing teaching and learning materials specifically focused on language, mathematics and science
  • Enhancing high school education through academic support
    A limited number of pilot programmes have been initiated in Jharkhand in the first phase (2015-2020). Learning from these pilot programmes will help scale the approach across other target locations in subsequent phases.

CInI’s Mission Programme’s primary focus is on enhancing the quality of life in the Central Indian tribal belt. Two of the core components of this mission is are to improve access to clean and safe drinking water, and to build better sanitation infrastructure, thereby complementing the Government of India’s Swachh Bharat mission.
    The programme focuses primarily on:
  • Technological innovations for service delivery
  • Innovative finance models

CInI helped form new village-level water and sanitation committees, scaled up existing ones, and strengthened them through orientation, regular meetings, capacity building and exposure. These committees were made responsible for rolling out hamlet-level sanitation plans and were provided testing kits to periodically monitor drinking water quality.

The Central Indian tribal belt is home to 75% of India’s indigenous tribal communities, who live in abject poverty, with barely any livelihood opportunities. CInI’s Lakhpati Kisan – Smart Villages Mission Programme aims to provide agricultural income as well as year-round irrigation support to those living under such conditions.

      • From experience, the organisation knew the importance of:

     

    • Access to irrigation to ensure sustainable incomes
    • Diversification to high-value crops to improve crop productivity
    • Direct and fair market linkages
    • Improved access to education, water, sanitation and health
    • Single-window financing to improve credit availability

Given which, CInI promoted commercial vegetable production and floriculture to generate higher economic returns per unit of land. Healthy seeds for better yield coupled with mechanisation to reduce labour are the focus of the agricultural clusters, which generate enough quantity to bring traders to the producers.

From curative to awareness and early detection programmes

A pioneering move in medical history was made when Tata Trusts translated its philanthropic sentiments into reality through the creation of Tata Memorial Hospital in 1941. This was the first of many such path-breaking endeavors by the Trusts in the field of cancer care.

Increasingly, the Trusts have recognized the need to shift focus from curative to awareness and early detection programs, in order to detect the disease as early as possible and improving the rate of survival. As a result, the Trusts have embarked upon several initiatives, from implementing the National Cancer Grid — a network of 108 cancer hospitals in India — along with Tata Memorial Hospital to conducting a proof-of-concept in cross-subsidized screening programs for certain types of cancers. The purpose of all initiatives is to ensure greater awareness about and accessibility to cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment.

Early marriage robs girls of their childhood, pushing them out of school and more often than not, into a lifetime of violence as they are unable to negotiate the power dynamics in their new homes. Breakthrough works to remove barriers which keep girls from leading healthy, empowered lives. We work with families and communities to change the mindset which views girls as a burden, a mindset which is the root cause of early marriages.

A small donation from you will help Breakthrough ensure that girls continue their education and are equipped to stand up for themselves. That they are supported in an environment that values them and believes that they will be unstoppable once empowered. Any amount contributed by you will make a difference in how girls perceive themselves and how they are perceived by others.

On reaching adolescence, a lot of girls drop out of school. One of the reasons for this is early marriage. Even today, every 4th girl in India is a child bride, at an age when they should be in school and worrying about their homework or play time, they are at the receiving end of domestic violence and sexual abuse in their marital homes. Often, these young girls, children themselves, end up becoming mothers. All of this is still happening in our society because of a mindset which views girls as a burden, rendering them powerless to make any decisions about their own lives. 

You can help change this mindset. Girls need to be valued as individuals and as members of the community, so that they can realise their dreams. This is where you come in. Your donation to Breakthrough ensures that girls continue their education and are equipped to stand up for themselves. You ensure that they become leaders and pave the way for other girls around them. You play your part in ensuring that adolescent girls have a more promising future.

Launched in 2016, The Ronald McDonald House Charities Foundation India (RMHCFI) seeks to promote and establish care centres, care rooms and care houses for the benefit of families whose children have been going through a medical treatment, both within and outside hospitals and medical centres, free of cost. RMHCFI aims to establish Ronald McDonald Family Rooms (RMFR) across leading Government hospitals. The aim of this facility is to provide families of ailing children a place with comfortable seating area within the hospital and give them resources to get a break from the stressed hospital atmosphere. RMFR intends to provide improved medical environment for the families, emotional support to parents, clean and hygienic play activities for kids and an opportunity of relaxation to all those families whose children are undergoing medical treatment at the hospital. 

Currently, we are looking to build a ‘Ronald McDonald House’ in Mumbai to begin with which can accommodate about 100 families. To create and develop this house, we are seeking support from the community.
