Although Vivekananda Loksiksha Niketan has been working for the people of the locality for more than three decades, yet the authority and the workers of the Niketan strongly feel that they have not been able to touch even the visible tip of the iceberg of the problems faced by the local community. The problems are too many and our resources are so small like a drop in the ocean.
However, through the untiring efforts during the past years we have been able to collect the local people on a common platform with a common vision that made them united for united action for a common goal. And hence we have been able to rescue and take care with protection of abundant, surrendered and fondling babies finally making them settled in families being adopted. Further, we have been capable of upliftment and all round integrated development of both mothers and their babies. Babies of working and ailing mothers have been provided with maternal care including their supplementary nutrition, pre-school education and with these the concerned mother are benefited as well. Now we are able cater to children of vulnerable group in need of care, protection, education and development.
Our programmes have played a considerable role on rescue and anti-trafficking not only of children but also of girls and women. The role has covered anti dowry and anti child marriage as well. We have also been able to take care and give protection towards development of shelterless & helpless women finally rehabilitated. We could mitigate family problems especially conjugal disputes outside the court. Senior citizens have been taken care through our year long programmes. We could provide helpless old people with care and protection at their last stage of life.
