Label: Purpose & Activities

Society for Health Education and Development (SHED) is an NGO that has been operating in Anantapur district for the past 31 years. SHED works with both the rural working class and different castes to bring harmony and take up development activities to the rural poor. They organize rights-based activities, such as educating drop-out children, and address women’s issues. They build communal harmony, and promote the Right to Information act. They hold development activities, such as boring drinking water wells, providing housing and sanitary latrines, and building rainwater harvesting structures. Among their highlights, members mention rehabilitation of vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS, capacity-building offered to 2,500 women and creating awareness of women’s empowerment, the promotion of sustainable livelihood among communities, youth and Dalit groups, and the construction of 25 rooftop rainwater harvesting structures to create and conserve rainwater to promote nutritional gardens. They are convinced that taking up the right kind of activities enhances the possibility of bringing harmony and minimizing violence, and giving the rural poor a satisfactory level of living with justification. They have started a network group of NGOs; namely, ASRA (Association for Services in Rural Areas), with seven NGOs as members. Together, they can have more impact in awareness-building through training, group discussions and workshops to achieve their goals.
