Covid-19 Relief Work
Covid-19 has posed unprecedented challenge for all of us and particularly those who have been traditionally marginalized and neglected. The old, ill and the migrant workers are the most affected ones. In this time of crisis, Vigyan Foundation is currently engaged in Covid-19 Relief work in Lucknow as well as Allahabad. At Lucknow, we have formed a Whatsapp group by the name of Support Group Lko Covid-19. Through the group we are coordinating relief work for the urban poor, migrant and homeless. Regular fund raising and reaching out to the distressed through dry ration, cooked food, masks, soaps and sanitary pad is being done. In case you are interested and want to contribute, do drop us a mail at vigyanfoundation@gmail.com or follow us at our facebook page.
School Chalo Abhiyaan to ensure universal enrolment in schools

Under the same, in order to ensure 100 percent enrolment of children of intervention area, a district level School Chalo Rally is organized every year in close collaboration of the Education Department. In 2014, a 5 days Jattha yatra was organized under the program Sashakta Bachpan in which total of 12 SMC members from 12 different Govt. primary Schools took part voluntarily. he total duration of Jattha was 5 days, in which all the SMC members were made to stay at night at any one selected village (which is not their own village), and had made to eat food in the community’s home; which not only contributed in increasing harmony among pupil from different caste and gender but also supported in increasing the feeling of brotherhood in the community; as all the Jattha members were from different castes, cultures and backgrounds.

Before the campaign total of 720 out of schools and dropout children were identified in the intervention area; but by the end of the Jattha over 750 children were enrolled in the nearby government primary schools.
