GNI broad focus is in line with sustainable development goals (SDG) to end poverty, with nature focus is on Children, and therefore all cross cutting thematic initiatives is focused on making the lives of children better. To achieve this objective, we work on the following thematic areas, as part of a well thought strategy:

  • Education
  • Health
  • Vocational training
  • Water and sanitation
  • Income Generation

Education: We see Education as an enabling intervention that develops the child to be an aware, knowledgeable, successful and responsible person in the society. To that end GNI, India works with the most vulnerable group of children. The focus in not in creating parallel facilities and mechanisms for Education, but rather in working with the existing Educational system by strengthening, preschool education, enrolment, augmenting classroom teaching with additional coaching and providing vocational skills.

Our specific interventions covers:

  • Preschool education needs of children below six years. This includes protection from abuse and accidents, by providing day care facilities
  • Working with children and parental community to ensure that there are no dropouts, and children have access to quality of education including Computer learning.

Health:Health is an important intervention area for GNI. To help ensure sustainable outcomes, we adopt a three pronged approach:

  • Creating awareness on health and personal hygiene.
  • Preventive care, by sensitizing and training communities in water borne diseases, preventive measures needed including clean surroundings and environment. These are simple measures but very effective.
  • Curative measures, by conducting regular health camps to identify people suffering from diseases and provide treatment.

Vocational training:Vocational training for adolescent and young mother is an important strategy to ensure children and families acquire skills to help enhance their future employability and means to supplement the family income, respectively. Computer skills for children and tailoring for young women, are part of such interventions.

Water and sanitation: (WASH) GNI believes access to safe and potable Drinking Water and Sanitation, is paramount for children’s good health and ability to pursue their education and allied interests. Sensitization on health and hygiene is therefore followed up with establishing safe drinking water and sanitation infrastructures, in collaboration with the Village Panchayats- for ‘Operation and Maintenance’.

Income Generation: Training women SHG members in individual and group micro enterprises is another important element of financially empowering families, to enable them provide financial support to the future educational aspiration of their children as well as a means to fight poverty challenges and vulnerability to debt. Training covered skills pertaining to relevant trade or income activity, access to credit and managing costs and loan repayments.
