The year 2016-17 for ARYA BHARAT has been a year of experimentation, learning and evolving. The year threw up many challenges, prompted us to push ourselves to new limits, become innovative and emerge with new insights. It made us face many situations where we were challenged to change, modify or recreate the modality to work with our beneficiaries. However, what did not change for us is our zeal to create a ‘World free of pollution, unemployment, poverty, child abuse, etc… The path for this work has never been smooth, and we have faltered, learnt and evolved into being more rooted and compassionate. We are delighted to have exceeded our targets across all of our few programmes. We are learning how to further strengthen and streamline our interventions through regular monitoring, evaluation and timely strategic decision making throughout the organisation. In times of crisis and pain, what has helped us stay the course is the faith that has been bestowed on us by our beneficiaries, partners, funders and well-wishers. Amidst all of this, we are kept motivated when the unemployment, poverty, child abuse, etc… people we work with emerge as champions and participate in their own safety. This year we were fortunate enough to see many such moments, and we would like to give you a glimpse of these through this annual report.
Creating mass awareness on the issue of unemployment, poverty, child abuse, etc… has always been a critical aspect of our work at ARYA BHARAT. We reached out to few individuals through a diverse range of awareness sessions.
ARYA BHARAT also participated in various national and international events and conferences, including:
Our outreach through social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook has been to few hundreds. This space has been used to create visibility on the issues of women empowerment and entrepreneurship, poverty alleviation, women safety and security, etc… through articles, photos and posters as well as to showcase ARYA BHARAT programmes and outcomes.
ARYA BHARAT has also gained visibility through both print and visual media.
Dr. Sumit Dubey, propagated the use of special brush for additional cleaning in difficult to reach areas, small head, tapered and then story doesn’t end here. Avoid soda drinks, chocolates, chips, snacks and junk quick bite between meals. He also emphasized that manual toothbrushes should be replaced every 2-3 months as the bristles can wear down and become weak. Powered tooth brush (battery operated) is also recommended.
He educated everybody that how many times a day should one brush / floss his/her teeth?: Flossing should be done once a day. Flossing stimulates gum tissue, keeping gums strong and healthy and also removes decay causing bacteria in between the teeth that can lead to decay and gum disease.
The program was conducted under National Oral Hygiene Campaign India – An initiative for HASNAA (Healthy Affordable Solutions Nationally for AAM AADMI) in association with ARYA BHARAT.
Free Awareness Workshop & Dental Check-up Camp was conducted under National Oral Hygiene Campaign India – An initiative of HASNAA (Healthy Affordable Solutions Nationally for AAM AADMI) in association with ARYA BHARAT at Sarojini Devi Girls Inter School Gursahaiganj, Kannauj (UP) during May 2016.
Dr. Sumit Dubey Senior Specialist carried out a comprehensive dental check-up on students of Grade 9.
The camp was initiated with dental awareness talk, educating students about common dental ailments, especially stressing on tooth decay and gum diseases and measures to prevent from them. The students were highlighted about the eating patterns and food choices which cause tooth decay. The surgeons also highlighted about the possible formation of harmful acid which develops when bacteria (plaque) get in contact with sugar in the mouth which ultimately results in tooth decay. “Added sugars often are present in soft drinks, candies, cookies, pastries and therefore to help control the consumption of sugar one must read the food labels and choose the right foods and beverages that are low in added sugar”, Dr. Sumit ,Dubey added.
The below free dental check-up and awareness camp is one of the many free social events organized by the ARYA BHARAT Group throughout the year.
The students got ample opportunities to interact with the dental doctors to enquire and gain knowledge concerning oral diseases.
Dr. Sumedha Kushwaha and Dr. Manasvi Bawa Behl, as the General Secretary/Founder and the President of ATTAC Society- Aim to Terminate Tobacco and Cancer were the doctors voluntary present for awareness drive.
Dr Sumedha has delivered a lecture on drug abuse. She said the youth were the future of the country and they should participate in nation building activities by contributing towards the development of the nation.
She also said the youth must associate actively in the mainstream activities instead of leading passive lives and said the nation could march ahead on the path of progress only with the support of the younger generation. The youth should read the biography of freedom fighters.
