  • Healthcare Programmes


    SPOWAC's efforts to improve menstrual hygiene in rural and semi-urban Delhi involved collaborations with ENACTUS and Johnson & Johnson. ENACTUS helped acquire and distribute affordable sanitary pads while promoting hygiene awareness. Johnson & Johnson supplied subsidized napkins for distribution. The "WASH" project educated communities on water conservation, handwashing, and hygiene through various activities. "MAMTA" focused on tuberculosis awareness with door-to-door campaigns. SPOWAC facilitated the "Delhi Annashree Yojana" for food security and organised nutritional camps, health camps, and clinics to promote personal hygiene and provide free medicines.

  • Wara Wara Project

    SPOWAC and a partnering organization have launched a project in Dwarka's Sec-1 slums, designed to engage children in informal learning activities. This initiative aims to foster cognitive development and discover hidden talents among the children. The project involves selecting a theme, creating a wall-mounted tree, and having the children illustrate a corresponding story. Additionally, a mini library named "Wall-O-Books" is established, encouraging children to contribute stories and study materials. Children take on leadership roles, managing the library, documenting decisions, and planning for the future.

  • Education Programmes


    Its Education Programme's goal is to reduce school dropouts and reintegrate them, with a focus on first-generation learners, offering flexible instruction to enhance self-confidence.
    ENGLISH LITERACY CLASSES aim to achieve spoken English proficiency, using computer-based audio-visual aids in a one-year course. Moreover, ADULT EDUCATION provides career-relevant training for those above 14 without formal education. The TEACH INDIA PROGRAMME collaborates with the Times of India to educate and empower individuals aged 18-35. UMEED KI KIRAN, a joint initiative with the Rotary Club of South Delhi East, works to reintegrate non-school-going children aged 7-14 into formal education.

  • Project Dignity


    In collaboration with another NGO, this project aims to offer fundamental computer training to widowed and separated women, as well as their children.

  • Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Programme


    The PC-PNDT Act was enacted in India to combat female foeticide and address the declining sex ratio by prohibiting prenatal sex determination. SPOWAC actively engages in implementing this legislation at the grassroots level. Its objectives encompass creating awareness, training nodal officers on PC-PNDT, and reducing female foeticide. The initiative targets Anganwadi workers, pregnant women, and all females. It involves organising workshops, seminars, surveys, and documentation to systematically address the issue. SPOWAC maintains close collaborations with healthcare centres, monitors local diagnostic facilities, and takes legal action against violators. Continual monitoring of pregnancy outcomes, abortions, and expectant mothers is a key aspect.

  • Rural Development Programme


    This programme aims to bridge the gap between research scientists and farmers by establishing dedicated workshop training facilities in District Palwal, Haryana. The training covers supplementary income sources and emerging food processing technologies through visual aids and classroom sessions. Special programmes empower farm women and prioritize farmers from SC/ST categories. In the realm of sports and festivals, annual volleyball tournaments and cultural events serve as platforms for spreading awareness on social issues, farming methods, microfinance, and sanitation. Remedial teaching initiatives focus on children's welfare, providing homework assistance, fostering a strong educational foundation, and supplying educational materials and recreational toys to approximately one hundred children annually.
