STREE SHAKTI CAMPS
Having identified health, literacy and income generating skills as the three significant components impacting empowerment of women, it is necessary to ensure that existing health care facilities are availed by the target group of women and the existing literacy and income generation activities are brought to the notice of these women.
In the conventional approach, the expectation is that the members of the target group would reach the institutions/programmes. In the camp approach, the underlying concept is that these institutions/programmes would reach the target group at almost their doorstep within a fixed period. Hence with the support of Social Welfare Dept. Govt. of Delhi SAVE had organized 6 Stree Shakti camps in Nehru Vihar and Qurawal Nagar area of North East Delhi District.
These camps had three components namely : health, literacy and income generation skill.
To empower each and every woman in the community to achieve her fullest potential, protected from illness and injury-whether physical or emotional and to ably lead a healthy and respectful life by promoting sustainable use of available resources
  • To address issues of Health of Women
  • To address issues of Empowering Women through Community Involvement
  • To demonstrate the desire of the Government to reach out to the Target Group at its doorsteps
  • To promote alternate system of Healing
  • To disseminate information on Vocational Skill Training, Legal Awareness and HIV/AIDS Prevention
  • To promote Community Participation through involvement of Community Based Organizations and Individual Volunteers
A typical Stree Shakti Camp starts early on a Sunday and goes on till the afternoon. The essential components of each Camp are: Registration, Medical Check Up, Basic Pathological Test, Distribution of Free Medicines and Identification of Referrals for subsequent treatment.

HEALTH CAMPS: On bimonthly basis we organize health camps with an intention to benefit the community people of the target area. Wide publicity through loudspeakers, distribution of handbills, banners, puppet shows and street plays are the few publicity measures we adopt prior organizing the health camp because this results in a huge turnout during the camp date.  A huge number of people take benefit of the camp in some form or the other. People avail the facility of free health check-up and distribution of medicines in the camp. The camp offers separate counters for General Physician OPD, Gynecology OPD , and Pediatric OPD. These bimonthly camps also offer theme based separate counter for example family planning, Child & Maternal Health, Immunization, DOTS, ICTC, Diabetes etc. All the visitors get information about the various schemes run by Delhi Govt. through a different information counter at the starting point of the camp.
