Completed Projects

Education Key :

We have started working on bringing all children in the main stream of education. The dropout rate of the girls at the secondary level is very high due to the unavailability of secondary schools in the same villages and poor transportation facilities. The girls need to walk all the way to reach to the school. The organization supported these girls through bicycle bank program by providing bicycles to continue their schooling. At present the organization has 452 bicycles in the bank. The girls completed her 10th std. returns the bicycle back to the organization this is then handed over to the new needy & likely to dropout girl. So this is the ongoing process helping girls to continue their education. Similarly we have started the hostels for children of migrant families to stay back for continuing their education. At present the project area has 6 hostels to facilitate about 120 children since 3 years. The parents of girl child are not ready to keep their girls in the hostels. We have talk to the parents for the other alternative for keeping the girls ensuring their safety for their education. The parents agreed to keep these girls with their grand parents or neighbours. To ensure their studies we have supported them by foster parenting this is the additional intervention of the organization during the year. During this we have encouraged the schools to take the students for the exposure tour. The tour must be for the innovative places and a good exposure to the students like factories, industries, Agricultural school, milk centres or science centres. Every year we are supporting all 10 schools in the project area to facilitate about 300 students. The teachers in the project area are also not having good teaching skills, knowledge & exposure. Similarly we have started Balwadis for the children of remote areas under the educational facilities. The project area has 6 balwadis for the children under remote places can�t afford to go to the existing Anganwadis due to many reasons. Since 2 years through this activity we have able to bring 150 children of age group 2 � 3 years under the main stream of Pre-schooling.Educational key

Kitchen Garden :

The project is to support Preventive health Care program. The people in the project area haven�t habitual of eating fresh vegetables & nutritious food. The availability of these vegetables and affordability of the people is also a problem. Keeping this in mind the project focuses on getting fresh, green vegetables in the daily food of the family. The water tank other material is provided to the participants.Kitchen garden The quality seeds of the vegetables & green � leafy vegetables also provided to them. The use of gray water for plantation is also suggested to them. In summer season when there is scarcity of drinking water the use of gray water is found very helpful for the participants. Due to this they are able to get the vegetables to serve their family at least. We have 225 participants so far in the project. When we found that the participants don�t know the variety of dishes to serve the family especially to attract children to get nutritious diet & green vegetables. The project has introduced recipe training to make the women well equipped with the good recipes keeping the nutritious values intact. During the year the project has introduced the medicinal plants from the kitchen garden to help the families for using the same with preventive way. At the introductory phase three medicinal plants are provided to the participants. Later on we will add three more medicinal plants in it. The participants have provided with the use of these plants through training by Ayurvedic experts. The concept of Zero energy Cool Chamber is implemented useful during the summer season to keep the vegetables fresh for 4-5 days to use for the family in daily meal.

Sub Soil Irrigation Technique Program :

Kitchen garden The program helps the farmers for better output from their agricultural activities. Through this program we help the farmers to use sub soil irrigation technique. The diffuser & drip material is provided to the farmers. The trainings are conducted on the usage of the technique. The training also focused on the use of proper fertilizers & pesticides for the economical crops like grapes, berry, and custard apple. The project further helps the farmers by developing marketing trends & linkages. Through this we support animal husbandry, dairy farming etc. The activity has supported 150 farmers so far.

Agri-School :

Agri School The project area is drought prone. Thus people needs to use progressive techniques to get best yield. Thus the Agricultural school helps the youth, women & men practicing agriculturist to train on using organic fertilizers, farming with minimal use of water. The school helps the youth to know that the agriculture also based on science. We trained them to prepare the organic manure by using locally available ingredients. We have arranged 47 trainings during the year. Through this activity we also help the farmers to use progressive techniques for farming. We arrange the exposure tour for these farmers a batch of 25 to the agricultural colleges, institutions and farms using such techniques in farming. The water & soil testing labouratory also formed to support these farmer to know, the kind of input to be provided in the farming to get better output through agricultural practices. The activity facilitated to 583 women so far.

Self help group :

selfprogramme Yerala Projects Society has started SHG formation & linkage program with the help of NABARD in Apr 2008. Women SHGs play an important role in the developmental process of the villages around Jalihal. Over the years these groups have become responsible and have understood the importance of development process. Almost all the programs which are being implemented by YPS are implemented with the involvement of SHGs. YPS kept the target of completing 100 SHGs within three years. So far we have been instrumental in forming and capacity building of 86 SHGs. Among those SHGs 77 has linked with the banks. They are doing regular savings and also helping each other. Most of the groups have received soft loans from the banks after gradation conducted by YPS. Further they are providing credits to their members to take up income generating activities. So far we have 8 credit linkages formed.

Nursery and demonstration:

YPS has developed agriculture demonstration unit at Jalihal. Every year 3-4 new varieties of seeds which are suitable for the agro-climatic condition of the area are procured from the market and demonstration is carried out. During the demonstration, farmers visit the demo plot and witness the developments. All the information is shared with the farmers. The main purpose of carrying out demonstrations is to eliminate the risk of farmers. Once the results of particular seed are obtained , farmers can choose which seed suits them.

Goat Project :

The Project has based on the need of women empowerment for the destitute women in the project area. YPS developed the Central Goat Unit with the service from veterinary doctor. YPS provides the identified destitute or underprivileged women a goat unit with 5 She goat & 1 he goat.Goat Project With in two years the women will be supported by this unit to develop her own unit as well. We have observed that the women participants of the project has started sending their children to the school & also benefited by the getting her own money. Through out three years we have supported to 235 participants. The veterinary doctor supports the participants by providing medical facilities to the goat unit. The unit provided to the participants is insured to get full benefit to the participants if any one of it is died. The project is entering into its second phase from Feb 2011 with new concepts of the beneficial one for the participants & to help in developing eco system in the village by developing the demo fodder plant of 1 acres land for greasing the goat units. Each participant will be guided to develop its own land for the same purpose, thus by bringing more land under cultivation by developing the eco-system.
