Health And Social Awareness

Jhabua is a backward, tribal district with only about 33% of literacy and the villages of this vast arid region are widely scattered. Every year around 50,000 denizens drift away to the adjacent states in search and hope of acquiring jobs. Many adolescent girls are also included in such endeavor. Usually, after a hiatus, these adolescent girls and the young women, come back to their home soil with several diseases. Some with early pregnancy and many with the tragic disease of HIV-AIDS ! Jan Shikshan Sansthan, Jhabua, has recently taken up the challenge of salvaging such marginalised groups of women. Serious health and social issues were taken up in seminars, where at least 20 villages participated. Adult education was offered, along with integral matters on health and hygiene, especially to the afflicted adolescent girls. Around 20 village women were trained in this seminar to work as heads of their hamlets, bringing forth several important health and social awareness issues, amidst these adolescent and youth female groups. Jan Shikshan Sansthan, Jhabua, is striving hard to curb such menaces.
