In the field of sanitation programme, the awareness generation activities covered safe use of drinking water, safe disposal of waste water, safe disposal of human waste.
Health, hygiene and nutrition are directly related with the poverty and these problems are acute in rural and urban areas, as people do not understand the necessity and consequences. The awareness generation programme prevents and curative measures of various seasonal and inherent diseases and suggested to take proper measures. The people were made aware about cleaning he houses, streets, drains to keep surroundings clean to avoid spread of diseases. It is general practices that people are not aware about proper use of dietary system specially using pulses, cereals and vegetables in the manner to get maximum nutritious elements out of these. Women took interest in these programmes as they can better manage all these issues.
The organization functionaries made aware people of both sex in separate groups about the abuse of HIV/AIDS/SID, the reason of its transmission from one person to other and measures to check the problem as there is no medicine to treat the problem. The measures for prevention were communicated to the people.
Usually the cultivators still use conventional practices of cultivation, which result in low yield. With the significant increase of population, land resources have huge pressure and to meet the requirement, land resources need to be used though adopting latest devices for maximum output. This also includes change in cropping pattern, use of bio-fertilizers, bio-pesticides, organic manure, vermi-compost, NADEP compost. Cultivators were made aware about the problems in their conventional practices and benefits for adopting the crops like medicinal, herbal, aromatic suited to the land and environment.
With the increase in traffic, road safety measures have became very essential to follow. With this objective, RMSVS has carried out awareness generation for following the safety arrangement by using light reflectors on vehicles and follow traffic rules for own safety. The awareness generation has created good impact as they were very little aware about these problems.
