ONGOING PROJECT AT SHRAM VIHAR, NEW DELHI
AAROGYA - Medical assistance:
Keeping in mind AICWETE’s three major implementing themes/category i.e. Elemental, Career and Guidance, the
elemental part cannot be fulfilled without proper attention on health of the target population. Thus, the
Shram Vihar Centre will also look into the issues related to health of the residents. Spanning from regular
visits by a qualified doctor, to diagnosis and a small dispensary of medicines for the benefit if the
community will be the key aspects of this health Centre. The Centre was opened the same day as the tailoring
and cutting Centre by our chairperson Dr. Shabistan Gaffar.
Rehabilitation assistance’ Programme at ShramVihar
AICWETE in collaboration with HCI (Human Concern International) provided rehabilitation assistance to the
deprived and stateless ‘Rohingya’ community in the month of July 2018. Considering the plight of this
community and the conditions which they are living (they are living in make shift tents), AICWETE and HCI
felt the need to help this community upfront. The arrival of monsoon rains in the months of June and July
made their conditions worse. Incessant rains worsened their living conditions and many refugees’ personal
belongings were washed away due to poor quality sheds. AICWETE and HCI provided them with quality sheds in
the form of high quality tent and other logistics like wood and bamboo stands. This effort stood
successful as despite heavy rainfall stretching up to September this monsoon, these tents are still firm
Second, with the festive season on i.e. Eid-Ul-Fitr and Eid-Ul-Zuha in between June and August, AICWETE and
HCI made every effort to bring happiness in the lives of the refugee community. We provided them with food
material (Flour, cooking oil and water container, 10 litre Milton jar). This effort ensured that they
celebrated the festive season without feeling any kind of helplessness and hopelessness. Thus both efforts
to provide proper shelter with tents and woods and the food distribution brought about a sense of belonging
to humane world amongst these ignored and deprived community.
SANITATION AT ALIGARH in A. R. Higher Secondary School.
Keeping in mind development as the foremost goal, AICWETE is helping marginalized sections of society not
only through education but also by sensitizing them on sanitation which forms the basic necessity of life. We
paid a visit to Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh as this region is one of the most underprivileged and underdeveloped
region in North India. A survey was conducted and we learned about the lack of awareness about sanitation. We
decided to help the target population via digital literacy and opportunity; however we learned that they were
not well aware of it.
Understanding the fact that health and hygiene forms the bedrock of a prospering nation, we ensured working
towards the progress of the people of the region. We started working from the local schools, one such school
was the A.R Higher Secondary school, which lacked basic sanitation facilities. There were no proper toilets
either for students or for the staff and teachers, upon questioning the principal, we were told there was no
satisfactory reason given by him. Thus, we decided to help the school build a toilet and wash basins which
will ensure basic hygiene practices amongst the students eventually this will help them in being protected
against diseases which are caused due to unhygienic life styles. 200 students of the schools are benefited
from this AICWETE initiative.
MEDICAL CAMP IN BIHAR ON NOVEMBER, 2017
Health and hygiene has been a focal point for measuring the development of any country. However, till today
millions of people around the country, especially in the rural areas are deprived of basic health facilities.
An effort in this direction was made by All India Confederation for Women Empowerment through Education
(AICWETE) in collaboration with All India Federation for Social Justice (AIFSJ).
AICWETE and AIFSJ organized a Free Medical Camp on 5th November, 2017 and 7th November 2017 in Bihar from 8 AM
to 4 PM.
Medical Check – up and providing basic medicines
Many men, women and children came for medical checkup and also medicines for future use were provided to them.
Similar efforts will be replicated around the country as and when required.
RELIEF AND REHABILITATION OF THE FLOOD VICTIMS IN KASHMIR ON SEPTEMBER, 2014
This was the worst flood Kashmir has witnessed in over a century. The flood had taken many lives, destroyed
livelihood, demolished public and private assets, and devastated the State economy. Along with the sad loss
of lives of over 500 people across J&K, Kashmir has suffered damage to infrastructure and business of over
one lakh Crore. A total of 2600 villages are affected, with 1700 in Kashmir and the rest in Jammu.
More than 100 people from different parts of Kashmir along with our 20 volunteers worked relentlessly for the
relief and rescue operations.
The President and Secretary of the Confederation visited Kashmir on 17th September, 2014 to study the
situation deeply and chalk out a plan for the rehabilitation of victims.
Support from AICWETE-:
Construction of temporary shelter sheds for the flood victims, 26 temporary shelter sheds which cost rupees
50,000 per shed.
Community Education Centre
As a large number of children were unable to continue their studies and many educational institutions were
destroyed due to the flood disaster, AICWETE took the initiative for strengthening them through education.
Community Education Centre were established at Bemina and Srinagar. They were also provided educational
support at different stages, e.g. stationary to 60 students @ 5000/- and scholarship to 55 students @ 5000/-.
Coaching classes for students at Community Centre
Better physical living conditions for victim by providing food necessities. AICWETE took an initiative for
supporting these victims by providing food, blankets and other necessities. It has supported total 120
HealthCare Center in Shaheen Bagh since 2016
Along with education, health forms one of the most important aspects of human capital for any nation. It is
no different with India. A booming population has also led to emergence of lack of resources vis-à-vis health
and sanitation. Thus there arises a need to ensure basic health and sanitation facilities for the poor and
needy and especially women who are most vulnerable. Some of the health and hygiene initiatives undertaken
under AICWETE are as follows.
HEALTH AWARENESS SURVEY – SHAHEENBAGH Dated 30thMarh 2017
Reason for the Survey:-
All the slums in Shaheen Bagh Area are scattered and most of the slum population are labour who are below
poverty line. They are depend mainly on their daily earnings. The basic health needs and awareness are
lacking and sufficient medical facilities are not available to these people. It has been found that few
people suffering with diseases are taking treatment. We have provided them with information regarding the
Health Centre at Okhla were they can come and have treatment for them & their family for free.
Also as a part of survey we tried to find out the need of a Health Camp in that particular area. As per the
need we will Organize Health Camp & will provide health care, Education, drugs to patients free of charge.
Conducting free health camps & house visits can provide health services to slum people & also can reduce
HEALTH & HYGIENE Center – SHAHEENBAGH, Okhla New Delhi, April 2016.
The main objective of the exercise is to create awareness about the most prominent and serious health
concerns that are aggravating in our population, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and high blood
pressure. We have conducted awareness campaigns on health and personal hygiene benefiting a total of around
more than 400+ people. The medical camps were particularly oriented to the slum dwellers of Shram Vihar,
Shaheen Bagh & Okhla in the past Month & a Half which are the most vulnerable to diseases & Unawareness.
Around 40+ Patients were seen on 7th April in Shaheen Bagh & Okhla suffering from Cold, Cough, Fever, Various
Skin Infections, Respiratory Issues, and Hygiene Issues & Other General Problem.

ONGOING PROJECT AT SHRAM VIHAR, NEW DELHI
Hunar se Rozgar - Tailoring and Cutting Centre:-
AICWETE in association with ‘Human Concern international’ has made an effort to provide a life of dignity and
respect to the Rohingya refugees at the Shram Vihar centre New Delhi. Towards this goal AICWETE and Human
Concern International (HCI) have set up a skill development center where young and married women of the center
will be provided skill based training so that they become self-dependent and contribute to their family’s
income. The training would involve skills on tailoring and cutting. Women and young girls are encouraged to
enroll themselves in this training.
Centre for Cutting and Tailoring
The training was inaugurated on the 17th August 2018 by the chairperson of AICWETE Dr. Shabistan Gaffar. This
centre will not only cater to the needs of the refugee community of the region but will also empower the
future generations of their community. Special machines and a spacious shelter for the classes have been set
ONGOING PROJECT AT SHRAM VIHAR, NEW DELHI
Urooj - Education Centre:-
Understanding the plight of the refugee community and other marginalized sections in the camp, AICWETE has also
set up an education centre for the children of the deprived communities of the Shram Vihar camp.This education
centre has been set up, keeping in mind the rigors of the syllabus of the school going children, who being new
to the environment as refugees, find it difficult to comprehend texts either in Hindi or English. Hence, an
education centre of this level will make the school life of the children much easier. A qualified teacher has
been appointed for providing quality classes. This center too was inaugurated the same day as the medical and
Convention of Muslims women on “Advancing educational schemes and entitlement
opportunities for Muslim Girls in West Bengal”
The All India Confederation for Women's Empowerment Though Education in association with Voice of Muslim Women
in West Bengal conducted Convention of Muslims women on “Advancing educational schemes and entitlement
opportunities for Muslim Girls in West Bengal” on 23rd September 2014 at Haj House, Park Circus, from 11am to
5pm. The purpose of the convention was to deliberate and discuss on scope, opportunities for education and
skill building for Muslim girls in West Bengal. It also attempted to identify the barriers through
participatory discussion, and designing the solution to remove those barriers in access to education.
DIGITAL LITERACY AT ALIGARH in A.R. Higher Secondary School November, 2017
The number of electronic gadgets, digital devices and their usage may be increasing day by day in urban areas,
however it is not the same story in the rural areas. Even if people have access to these devices and the money
to buy these, there is always an obstacle which they have to face, either it is in the form of education or it
is due to lack of digital literacy i.e. how this digital literacy can help in their day to day life. For
example, at Aligarh when we conducted a survey at the A. R higher secondary school on digital literacy, we
found out that children or students knew about devices like phones and computers, but lacked the knowledge
either to function them or knowing the benefits of their usage. Understanding this gap between the rural and
urban regions, AICWETE donated a laptop to the school and also taught the students about the usage of digital
devices and various platform and their benefits. For example booking a ticket, connecting pension of the
elderly directly to their bank account, accessing internet for various competitive exams etc.
Digital Literacy Program at BARAMULLA, Jammu and Kashmir
In this age of globalization and computerization, the space for people’s differences is shrinking and the
world is coming closer than never before. Two most important factors for such closeness are; first, the
development of the information technology (IT) where internet revolution hasn’t stopped keeping people
informed and connected and second, the emergence of English as a global language. Keeping these two
developments in mind AICWETE, identified regions in India which seem cut off and isolated from this global
revolution, one such areas was Baramulla in Jammu and Kashmir, India.
Having witnessed a seemingly never ending conflict between India and Pakistan, the state of Jammu and
Kashmir in general and Baramulla in particular have witnessed violence and conflict upfront. The women in
particular were the most affected. Thus to add some glitter to their lives and empower them with present
global advanced knowledge, AICWETE decided to build a Centre, where women could be taught latest computer
knowledge, provide written and spoken English courses and equip them with skills like mobile repairing.
The Centre has been a source of inspiration and benefit to 150 women. The Centre has divided the duration
of each course (English, computer knowledge and mobile repairing) for six months.
HUNAR SE ROZGAAR TAK – Skill Development Programme
AICWETE since its inception has not only believed in helping the needy, especially women of the
society for their development, but also help the target population to attain the knowledge and skills for
their livelihoods. We help them equip with lifelong training and skills which enables them to secure stability
in economic and social terms. This initiative is called ‘Hunar Se RozgaarTak’. ‘Hunar’ is the inborn talent
and skill that the target group of people has, which has not been tapped and identified. AICWETE identifies
this talent and shapes it to make the person employable and hence ‘Rozgaar’ is employment that AICWETE
guarantees. Women have enough talents to become self-sufficient and the need is to identify this talent and
provide better opportunities to make them self-sufficient. Over the years some of the programs which have been
conducted under this program are as follows.
Meritorious Scholarship and certificate to students:
The Confederation provided meritorious scholarship and certificates to girl students at its National
Programme on 26 February 2014. Girl students who have successfully completed the vocational courses under
the Project Hunar successfully implemented by NIOS at Delhi with the initiative of AICWETE and other
students who have secured high marks in their classes. The Confederation had selected 150 girl students
irrespective of their religion, such as Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Christian etc and provided assistance @ 5,000/,
3,000/- 2000/- 1,000/- & 500/- depending on merit basis.
Vocational Training in collaboration with Muslim Women’s Welfare Organisation, New
Vocational programmes and other welfare programmeswere organizing by AICWETE and Muslim Women’s Welfare
Organisation in different parts of Delhi. The vocational training centres were run by the organization at
Okhla, New Delhi with the skill programmes under Project HUNAR scheme of NIOS. Both organizations made
tremendous contribution for the empowerment of women, particularly Muslim women.
We have trained many trainees at our vocational center Okhla village. After the completion of the course, we
have provided them micro-finance for own small business, many of them started own boutique centre at house
and at the same time, some students are working as cutting and Tailoring instructor or teacher in community,
and one of the girls purchased a sewing machine from micro-finance for cutting, tailoring coaching centre.
Some students started own business like preparing bed sheets and linen , Pillow Covers , Printing bed sheet
, paper bag , single kurta, clothing etc. This very process of transforming themselves from skills to
employment and generate income from these sources, has been termed by AICWETE as ‘HUNAR SE ROZGAR’
from ‘Skills to Employment’
Vocational Training Centre at Okhla Phase 1.
started vocational training Programme dated 28 November 2016 at Mohan oversees Okhla Phase 1
Delhi. We have 25 large training machines for trainees; our target is 20 trainees per batch. Trainees mainly
hail from Shaheen Bagh, Okhla village, Badarpur and Jaitpur. This training provided to them only for 60 days
, we are giving high level stitching skills training for the trainees and from top to bottom, for example
from stitching to how to export our fabric materials out of country. After the completion of training, we
provide them job , wherein their monthly salary is Rs.8,000 to Rs.10000 per month. Our main objective is
placement of all trainees to various sectors like Boutiques, fabric industries, etc. Apart from them some
students or trainees start own business after getting the training program. So we can rehabilitate those
trainees. Hence, here we term this process HUNAR SE ROZGAR

COMPUTER DONATION PROGRAMME FOR EMPOWERMENT OF SKILL DEVELOPMENT AMONG WOMEN
The present time is demanding and qualification and awareness is not only measured by the educational
degrees but also how sharp and advanced an individual is with technology of the times. Computers, no doubt,
have revolutionized the era of technology and will continue to do so in the 21st century. Keeping this
aspect in mind AICWETE has prioritized its efforts according to the demands of the time and needs of the
poor. Computer education will keep the underprivileged at par on technology with others who are
privileged.The All India Confederation for Women’s Empowerment Through Education, donated a computer to the

UNICEFGENDER SENSITIVITY December 2017
Gender equality is a global issue, which refers to the modification of behavior and sensitization by
raising awareness of gender equality concerns. This can be achieved by conducting various sensitization
campaigns, training centres, workshops programmes etc. To create enhanced progressive understanding on
gender Justice, certification for children and adults, participation in the intervention and orientation
on gender neutral socialization through a life cycle approach and methodologies of engaging with boys and
men at critical points of inflection.
Following are the life cycle approach for gender sensitive socialization:-
• Development of gender sensitive curriculum,
• Development of pedagogy kits, orientation,
• preparation of real life stories for discussion,
• orientation of institutions and
• Development of narratives on real life experiences of girl and women among others.
Survey On Gender Sensitivity
AICWETE started Gender Sensitivity Assessment Project in collaboration with Saajhi Duniya (an Organisation
work for women on Education, sensitization and training in U.P.) and funded by UNICEF. Project headed by
Mrs. Bella Das & team, which specially hired for this project a Principle Investigator (Ms. Anindita Roy)
and 3 Field Investigators (Ms. Katyayani Chandola, Mr. Tirthankar Battacharyya and Ms. Ashvini Jadhav) for
Teach School students about Gender Sensitivity
This exercise had been carried out in a blended mode using secondary as well as primary data.
Primary data carried out through interview or interactions of different stakeholders (Anganwari, ECCE
centre/school/colleges etc.) in Lucknow City.
Secondary data was collected from the agency, which carried out the intervention.
Three institutions AganwariCentre, School and College were visited for the interactions with beneficiaries.
Focus group discussions were carried out with the stakeholders. Primary and Secondary data were analysed and
documented activity wise.
EMPLOYABILITY SKILL PROGRAMME
What do we mean by ‘livelihoods’? It’s a term that is used frequently and loosely today. It is used
interchangeably with skilling, employability and job creation. So, to reduce the livelihood problem,
AICWETE took an initiative for employability through Micro-finance. Loan of rupees 5000/- through micro-
finance was provided to 20 women to start their own work.
A great teacher is critical to student achievement. So, how does a teacher become great? Just like the
training required for any specialized profession, teachers must train. They must train before they enter
the classroom, and they must receive ongoing training even as they work in the classroom.
Student’s Training Programme
So, AICWETE took initiative to organize teachers as well as student’s training in different schools for
the period of six months.
Teacher’s Training Programme
