These vital programs have been consistently active since 2005-06, ensuring a continuous and dedicated service to the target beneficiaries.

  • Nai Roshni


    The primary aim of the project is to empower women belonging to minority communities, enabling them to break free from the limitations of their households and localities. The project strives to empower these women to take on leadership positions and stand up for their rights, both individually and collectively. It emphasises their access to various services, resources, skills, and opportunities, while also advocating for their rightful share in government development initiatives. An integral aspect of this endeavour involves fostering economic empowerment among the women undergoing training, with the ultimate goal of fostering their self-sufficiency and bolstering their confidence as valued contributors to society.

  • Half way home


    The central goal of this scheme is to create a supportive environment tailored to homeless individuals grappling with mental health issues. This involves enhancing their quality of life by providing fundamental necessities such as shelter, sustenance, medical care, and opportunities for recreation. Additionally, the project strives to promote productive and active ageing by fostering capacity building and support.
    The facility currently houses 9 beneficiaries, with 15 beneficiaries having already completed their 6-month rehabilitation and left the premises.

  • Ujjawala


    The scheme's goal is to create a protective environment for vulnerable women and children susceptible to trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation and child labor. It focuses on victims of trafficking, with the following aims: preventing trafficking through community involvement and awareness initiatives; rescuing and providing safe haven for victims; offering comprehensive rehabilitation, including shelter, nutrition, medical care, counseling, legal aid, and vocational training; facilitating the reintegration of victims into society; and aiding the repatriation of cross-border victims. The strategies involve temporary housing with essential provisions, vocational training, counseling, legal support, and motivational efforts to ensure both economic recovery and emotional well-being.

  • Targeted intervention on HIV/AIDS


    D-VERDS's Health Programme prioritizes the prevention of HIV infections in high-risk groups, with a particular focus on its Targeted Intervention Programme supported by the Assam State AIDS Control Society. This program is a potent strategy for curbing HIV transmission in the community, particularly among those most vulnerable, such as female sex workers (FSWs). Unprotected sexual intercourse is the primary mode of HIV transmission in India, accounting for over 90% of cases. The disease tends to spread within networks of individuals who engage in high-risk behavior, involving multiple sexual partners.

    The objective of this programme is to reduce transmission rates among these marginalized populations. A crucial tactic involves direct intervention through multifaceted approaches. This spans behavior change communication, counseling, healthcare support, STD treatment, and fostering an environment conducive to behavioral shifts.
