"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The main objective of the Project is to bring down the Infant Mortality and to keep the Maternal Mortality at nil. This would be done by continuing the existing services and also augmenting the first tier of health delivery by enhancing the quality of care delivered by the Health Auxiliary at the tribal doorstep. The Health Auxiliary would also act as an agent of social transformation and help to develop the Farming and Health Committees that we will be continuing to form.





The Health Auxiliaries will play a major part in THI health programs and hence we feel that supporting them will bring in health consciousness that will continue even with their absence in the future.





1) Improvement of all health parameters especially the Infant Mortality Rate. 2) Augmentation of Health Auxiliary responsibilities and Capacity Building. 3) Continuation of ongoing Field Health Programs 4) Continuation of Curative Health services increasing hospital deliveries and neonatal care of sick newborns and infants
