Primary Social Work Training Course

Samatol has started a new venture about enlightening students who are really interested to make a career in Social Work. We introduce them to the basics of Social work and the contribution to different systems in societies like the Hospital system, Police system, Women and Child Development Department, formation of trust and other topics about related government departments, acts and rules related to children.

 

Through these 12 projects, Samatol strives to help every child in need all over India. It is also willing to cover new areas for care and protection of children in India.

Networking

In order to spread the work done by Samatol Foundation throughout India at a national level, Samatol feels the need to create a strong network among institutions and NGOs that are all over the country. Such a network will support in giving immediate help to any child in distress anywhere in India. This network will help us to locate the families of runaway children and connect easily with them to reunite their children. Samatol aims at creating co-ordination between different government departments and NGOs at national level to solve problem of any child across India. Samatol works with various Government departments like Police Dept., Railways Dept., Social Welfare Dept. and Women and Child Development Dept.

Working at other railway stations across India for children in distress

Samatol strives to reach out to the maximum number of children that are brought to the cities from different states for several reasons. They are either brought through child trafficking for the purpose of child labour or begging. In order to help them and reunite them with their families, we have started working at several junction stations in Maharashtra such as Pune, Bhusaval, Nagpur, Nanded etc. to help children in distress get immediate help and their faster rehabilitation to their families.

Awareness Program

Samatol Foundation tries to enlighten the children and their families from rural backgrounds on certain laws that are very important. The major laws applicable to children are Juvenile Justice (Care & Protection) Act, 2015 (J. J. Act, 2015) and Prevention of Children from Sexual Offenses Act 2012 (POCSO 2012), Child labour (Prevention and Regulations) Act 1986, Child Marriage Prevention Act, 2006 and Right To Education Act, 2009. Samatol arranges seminars for spreading awareness among students, parents and teachers. Similarly it arranges sessions for officers in Balgruh, Child officers in police stations and other police officers and also at other NGOs, hospitals, hostels and all other places where there are children. Samatol feels the need to spread such awareness in society and is also getting a prompt response from the same.

Organic Farming

Samatol has children majorly from rural areas who come to the cities and stay in open public places like stations, roads, and gardens. They are now habituated to eating adulterated food which may create health problems for them. To make these children aware about this and to provide them nutritious food, Samatol has started organic farming in its camp using gobar (cowdung) and go mutra (cow urine). All vegetables produced in these farms are used for our camp children which is why they are now healthy and fit. We plan to provide these vegetables to other sections of the society as well. This will help to create a healthy society free from diseases.

Annchhatra Seva

Samatol started the Annchhatra Seva in Thane in 2018. It first started in the civil hospital of Thane where food was provided to all the patients. Later, even families of the patients who came from rural areas to get their relatives treated benefitted from this as they had no food options but the outside unhealthy junk. Samatol noticed this need and hence gave a helping hand to these immigrants who came from far off. We apparently offer food for around 150 people every day and till date 40,000 people have taken benefit of Samatol Annchhatra Seva. Even during the lockdown, we helped several people from ST drivers to footpath beggars, labourers (in all around 13000 people) with our initiative. Many people and institutions offer their contribution to this project either by donating food grains or voluntarily coming forward to help us to serve food in Annchhatra.

Goseva

We also have Goshala which has 16 cows. These cows give milk on a daily basis which is provided to the children in camp. They get the required nutrition. Also, cow dung and go mutra required for organic farming are available from Goshala itself. Through this course, children learn about cows and are trained in feeding, grazing, and milking cows.

Vocational Training Courses for needy children

Samatol has started vocational training for children of 15 years and more at Swami Vivekanand Man Parivartan Kendra at Mamnoli, Kalyan. These children are given basic training in different courses. We conduct training in activities like Tailoring, Plumbing, Welding, Solar, Electrical repairs, Computer Training, Organic Farming, Ayurvedic Nursery and Goseva. Samatol also gives vocational training to needy children in nearby rural areas. This training is conducted for a batch of 10 children for 3 months and a certificate for completion of the course will be given to the students. Samatol is willing to train them with this vocational training to stand on their own feet once they reach their hometowns. They should start their own earnings by doing these activities instead of helping others and depending on them for money.

Tailoring

We train children and needy ladies in society to stitch school uniforms. These uniforms are given to the school students in nearby rural schools. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our children also stitched masks and distributed to everyone in need. Samatol provides them with cloth and tailoring material for stitching uniforms and masks. We are also planning a movement for plastic-free environment. For this, we are training these children and ladies to stitch carry bags from old clothes or old sarees and are distributing them in weekly markets in rural areas to promote the plastic-free environment. We aim to strengthen children and women in society and make them earn their own livelihood.

Plumbing

The majority of children that come in contact with Samatol are school-drop outs. In order to help them lead a life and start their earnings, they must be given some practical knowledge. We acknowledge this and train them in plumbing activities that shall allow them to make their living in the coming future. In fact, we get all the in-house work at camp done by these children. Our only motto is to make them confident and self-sufficient by indulging them in such activities.

Welding

Apart from plumbing, we also train children in the welding work. These technical fields can help them carve a niche in the coming future by either helping someone or starting their own workshops. The trainers give basic information about material required for welding and teaches them assembling of various welding products. They can assemble any rack or shade with their welding skills. This will enable them to make small changes in their house on their own and learn some fabrication work on small scale to help them earn good money

Solar Energy

Solar Energy is one natural form of energy available freely and in abundance. In today’s scarce sources of energy ‘Solar Energy’ is coming forward as a better option for generating electricity. Solar Energy can be used in commercial as well as residential set-ups. Samatol conducts vocational courses in solar energy to give basic information about solar energy components like solar panels, battery, wiring system under the guidance of expert lecturers. Through this, Samatol is introducing children to newest form of energy and create a new source of livelihood to them.

Organic Farming

Samatol has children majorly from rural areas who come to the cities and stay in open public places like stations, roads, and gardens. With the passage of time they get habituated to eating adulterated food which may cause health problems to them. To make these children aware about this and to provide them nutritious food, Samatol has started organic farming in its camp using gobar (cowdung) and go mutra (cow urine). All vegetables produced in these farms are used for our camp children which is why they are now healthy and fit. We plan to provide these vegetables to other sections of the society as well. This will help to create a healthy society free from diseases.

Ayurvedic Nursery

In today’s world, due to various diseases and health issues, people prefer Ayurvedic medicines over allopathic medicines. Keeping this in mind, Samatol has developed Ayurvedic Nursery as a part of vocational training. Plants like Tulsi, Alovera, Neem and other ayurvedic plants are grown in our nursery with the help of children. They are also given information about these plants and their uses for good health. This is how we are aiming at a healthy child friendly society.

Computer Training

The children in vocational training are given exposure to the world of computers as well. They are given basic information about hardware and software in computer system. In today’s era, we believe every child should be aware of computer technology and its importance and Samatol children are no exception. In every field of life and in every job, computer knowledge is required. The children in vocational training get acquainted with computers and their functioning which will be very beneficial in their future endeavours.

 

These vocational training programmes are designed taking into account of the needs and skills of children mainly coming from rural areas of all over India. They are either less educated or completely uneducated but every child has some in-built skill which can help them to stand on their own feet. We present an opportunity to all these children to use their skills to become Atmnirbhar (independent) and carve their own futures.

Rehabilitation of Children from Balgruh by Samatol

We strongly believe in rehabilitating every child with their family. Children must return to their families after acquiring new skills and a changed mindset which will help them to lead their lives by their own and in the correct way. Samatol undergoes rehabilitation of children in Balgruh with their families. Samatol is of the opinion that a child should not be there with Balgruh for a very long time but he should go back to his family after a certain period. However, often Balgruh opposes this opinion and doesn’t give permission for the rehabilitation of children in their Balgruh. But in Samatol, we think that rehabilitation of every child has to be done and we are trying to reunite children with their families to give them a more secured life ahead.
