Spandan Samaj Seva Samiti is a grassroots organization that has been working among the lesser known and nutritionally vulnerable Korku tribe for two decades now. Its core focus is to ensure the Food & Nutrition Security among the marginalized families. Consequently, it has adopted a multisectoral approach to address the household food insecurity and malnutrition. The organization’s work has been largely lauded and the founder Seema Prakash received prestigious Rashtriya Stree Shakti -Rani Laxmibai Purskar in 2014 for her work with tribal women and children. It also was selected as one of the 50 organization by World Economic Forum for their work during COVID in real remote regions. Niti Ayog also appreciated the COVID relief work.
Its major programs include:
Smoking is injurious to health and so is the smoke produced from the traditional chulhas(Stoves). The traditional chulha uses wood for cooking. They not only pollute the environment but also causes various respiratory diseases and lungs infections. Tuberculosis, low birth weight, heart diseases, still birth are the other diseases that can happen due to these. Coughing is the most common among the women, pregnant women and children using traditional chulhas at homes.
It is the time to make these women aware of the harmful effects of using these traditional chulhas and so we have come up with introducing SMOKELESS chulhas. These are designed in such a way that it uses less wood, cooks more efficiently and produces less smoke. We are making women aware to make these chulhas at home.
