Nutrition Distribution To Tribal Children

We are providing dry ration kits, nutrition support of fruits, coconut puddings, vitamin supplementation to the tribal poor children for their physical and emotional growth because the indifferent food supplementation in the Tribal style is not conductive to their orderly growth and well being and hence the SAMIDA with the support of other CSO networks like Bible Tabernacle Church USA and community have taken up the task of providing the nutrition support periodically. This distribution is happening every month and the supplementation can cater to the requirements for the month and is being carried under the guidance of trained staff and volunteers. The impact is that the families have begun initiating the home level nutrition provision in the best of the balanced pattern to the children and the replication is yet another measurable impact.

Asha Kiran – Send Children Back To The School In The Tribal Regions

SAMIDA is implementing the 26 Asha Kiran education centers in Ananthagiri Mandal of Alluri Seetharamaraju District and Ravikamatham Mandal Anakapalli district (Erstwhile Visakhapatnam District) with an intake of 1200 children who are all been the dropouts, never enrolled and laggards. The SAMIDA centres are serving as a bridge to empower children to be able to smoothly transition to regular school. Simultaneously, training of teachers will be undertaken to support children in studies. Enabling ecosystem is developed which comprises school premises, pedagogy that transitions from rote learning to conceptual methods that can keep both teachers and students engaged and engrossed among others.

Teachers are key in ensuring that students get the requisite lessons that keep their minds ignited for seeking knowledge. Students' likes and dislikes for attending classes, or interests in a particular subject, can be linked to their teacher quality of teaching. The challenge of improving quality of teaching is addressed by training teachers and supporting them with methodologies and community ownership, so that teachers take pride in their job. This will also encourage more people to take up teaching as a vocation, thus assisting in solving the non-occupied to the trained issues

General Health Camps In The Remote Tribal Villages And Schools

In an attempt to provide advanced school level health facilities in remote Tribal schools the SAMIDA has been organizing the medical camps and distributing the medicines and generally the school kids along with the villagers would attend these medical camps and a large number of locals including children, youngsters and elderly were the participants under the supervision of the doctors and para medical teams considering the fact that some of these tribal pockets are with chronic malaria, diarrhea, fevers and jaundice etc. and the recurrence would give way to the repetition of these. Hereby periodical testing would provide the signs and symptoms to these paving the way for early diagnosis and treatment. Another reason is that the community of far-flung are unable to approach the big hospitals for medical attention; we organize small camps to provide basic medicines and counsel them to visit bigger hospitals

Awareness On The Seasonal Diseases In The Rural And Tribal Villages

Stay warm, stay indoors and avoid direct and prolonged exposure to cold weather. Keep consuming enough water. Beyond common cold, arthritis, skin diseases, heart ailments and respiratory diseases flare up in winter season and advise to have a history of these diseases in the children and take appropriate measures to keep them in check are some of the awareness camps and provision for the proper upkeep of them. The summers are long and hot. Make sure that the children and elders are well protected from the harmful effects of hot rays and the summer heat can lead to several health problems, mainly dehydration and sunstroke.
