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.

Ab to Jaago Campaign

The Ab to Jaago campaign or 16 days activism to end violence against women is held every year from 25th November to 10th December. This year too, this campaign was held in the state of Uttar Pradesh with support from Oxfam India. Vigyan Foundation, Lucknow office in collaboration with partner NGOs facilitated the awareness activities in 8 cities of the state, namely Lucknow, Kanpur, Allahabad, Agra, Jhansi, Varanasi, Faizabad and Ghaziabad. In each of the above mentioned cities, a short film on violence against women was screened which was followed by an orientation cum awareness session on women rights and factors leading to violence against women. The discussion culminated with reaching on a consensus to work collectively to stop violence against women. The target group in all the intervention cities except Ghaziabad was youth from Intermediate/Degree Colleges. In Ghaziabad, we had the discussion with representatives from NGOs and community organizations.
