Social Work in Pushkar, India
We are Vikas Project (meaning growth and development), a registered India NGO providing education, medical, housing and art programs to families in tent camps, in the beautiful desert city of Pushkar in Rajasthan. These communities have low income and literacy rates, and no electricity or plumbing, and they face complex problems with housing, education, and health.
What We Do
+ Take people to doctors and hospitals, and manage and pay for their care
+ Provide art supplies to families and archive and share artworks
+ Facilitate and pay for surgeries and help with post-operative care
+ Feed and care for malnourished children
+ Help people with disabilities with medical care and education
+ Work to stop the use of tobacco by children
+ Provide on-site treatment for burns, wounds, and eye/ear/skin infections
+ Provide free monthly food staples to needy families
+ Help with rabies treatments for people bitten by dogs
