Social Development

The village of Vrindavan is turning into a modern city rapidly. Seeking financial stability many poor and illiterate families are migrating here for manual work. The farmers are giving up agriculture and taking up other professions. FFLV understood this social unrest and ran many family welfare and educational programs in the past regarding prenatal care, microfinance, primary health care, adult education, HIV, nutrition, basic hygiene, social care, counseling, etc. We had trained doctors that provided first aid and other health-related information. What worked the most, however, was vocational training and creating employment opportunities. Currently, we train village women in fields like embroidery and stitching and then employ them to stitch uniforms for our 1500+ schoolgirls every year, and also employ them at our embroidery center. This helps them support themselves and their families. Other employment opportunities have also been provided in the fields like an organic farm, cleaning staff, drivers, guards, etc. helping the underprivileged to overcome their line of poverty. We organize timely awareness drives, plays, and dances on social issues like child marriage, women’s abuse, etc to bring social awareness. FFLV is educating its girls in fields like karate, martial arts, yoga, classical dances, embroidery, drawing and painting, singing, etc, creating potential job opportunities for the girls in the future.
