About the NGO
SPPD works among poor, orphaned and underprivileged children, children with HIV and abandoned, deserted women like widows, helpless and resource poor farmers to ensure their rights and development. They also provide relief and rehabilitation to victims of disaster and train them on disaster preparedness.
SPPD envisions a secure & sustainable community with special focus on empowering vulnerable groups through 5 broad thematic areas. education & skill development focuses on providing wholesome education to children and demand-driven skill training to youth. They also prioritise health which is central to human well being.
Providing the children living with HIV/AIDS with monthly nutritional kit is one of other important activities. Their intervention with women groups is through building their capacity to become self reliant. India is primarily an agrarian country and hence SPPD strongly believes in reviving agriculture and making it profitable and sustainable.
This would solve many of the socio-economic issues that the rural population faces. The organization has trained small & marginal farmers in sustainable agriculture and has demonstrated the scope of dry land farming in a semi-arid region by establishing a model farm cum training centre. Yet another major initiative for Organic farming practices of SPPD is the propagation of preserved green fodder among the farmers of these drought prone districts. Disaster relief, rehabilitation, and more importantly training on Disaster Preparedness forms a part of interventions of SPPD.
Today, SPPD has been executing projects in partnership with the state government, central government, corporate, Not-for-profit organizations and individual philanthropists from India & abroad. The organisation has an impeccable track record of executing several projects which has transformed thousands of lives and stands testimony to the organisation's commitment & expertise. The organization has been enlisted by Global Giving - U.S, U.K and GiveIndia, TATA power and Your Cause that demonstrates its credibility, transparency and management.
