VRO has constructed 22 houses for Dalit families in Ramapuram village of Gudimetta (GP) in Racherla mandal of Prakasam district in 2013-14 where we have collaborated with AP State Housing Corp Ltd-Ongole by leveraging the Govt grant (Rs.65000 for each beneficiary) for the beneficiaries towards housing program. We have supported Rs.60000/- as additional matching grant and completed the houses in full shape manner with all facilities.
Again for the current year 2014-15, we have undertaken similar Integrated Community Development Program by constructing houses for 37 SC families in Alagayapalem village of Karedu (GP) in Ulavapadu mandal of Prakasam district. In both the villages, we have supported horticulture saplings and vegetable seed kits for raising in their backyard gardens. Besides we have provided water and sanitation facilities for all households in these two villages.
We conducted awareness programs on Health & Nutrition components besides organizing periodical medical camps in tribal villages with collaboration of Govt Health department focusing on institutional deliveries and maternal care. Also keep providing referral services to the needy patients and pregnant women by providing necessary means to access the health services in nearby towns. We also intensely work on promotion of household level kitchen gardens which helps the poor people to access the nutritional food and helps them to overcome the malnourishment.
