Visit to Narasaraopet Projects

My visit to Narasaraopet Sewing and Medical Projects.

First i visited the Medical project which was started in December last year in one of the  slum colonies on the out skirts of Narasaraopet.  The project is running well. The Nurse, Mrs.Padmavathi worked as a health worker in the local Government sector before and she was alloted this area for distributing medicines once a month so she has good connections with the people in this area and she has the knowledge of the common diseases of the people here. Having a regular medical help here in this area turned out to be really helpful and the people also seems to have no inhibitions visiting the centre since they have faith in the treatment of the nurse. This centre is even convenient for the  Government to distribute medicines on their behalf when they have medical camps and the nurse also has the scope to assist and  learn from the doctors during the camps.

Second one is the Sewing project which was started in December last year.  The first batch of 10 students completed their course end of last month and from July- 1st onwards the teacher Mrs.Satyavathi has new batch of ten students. Majority of the students are married women coming from a poor background like daily workers, house maids. They seem happy with the opportunity of free stitching course and interacting with them i was convinced that they seems confident of using their skills for their self help and also supporting their families after the course.
