AUTHOR’S NOTE

Growing up in rural area and career shaping years in urban area, has given me ample scope to learn about social, psychological & economic aspect of Indian society with different lenses. Country’s economic growth & mushrooming wealth in the city amaze outsiders. The current development in the cities has bypasses rest of 70 % population of India, living in villages. In rural area, life is very tough & they have to fight for bread & butter daily. SES has started working in rural area of Uttar Pradesh in early 1985 & it has found there is need for development in terms of social, economic & environmental aspect. SES believes that problems do exist in urban area. It has started working in urban area from last two years. In last two decades, SES has implemented variety of programme which includes food security, education, health & environment. This annual reports looks back at progress made over year 2011-12. It gives insightful information about SES & Its work. For those who are interested to know more about SES can visit its website or contact SES team. I would like to thank SES management for giving me an opportunity to write about effective work of SES.

Thank You, Sandeep

Part I: About SES

Amongst all the remote areas in India, SES has started with one of the most challenging places for its work. Eastern Part Of Uttar Pradesh which lags behind in social & economic indicator in comparison of developed part of state as well as country.

Figure 3: Working Area of SES These parts are affected by regular floods lead to loss of crops which push the farmers into debt and add to the shortage of

food resulting in poor health conditions of people. The problem doesn’t end

here; rather, it marks the beginning of complex problem. People, who have some kind of financial stability, migrate to cities in the quest of better job opportunities and livelihood. People, who don’t migrate, keep juggling with cultivation in the flood prone area. The havoc of flood leave the land deprived of fertility and farmers baffled in extreme poverty. Eastern district has been a victim of regular floods for a long time. The key strategiesto address issue are formation of CBOs, raising awareness & strengthening

linking with PRI, government’s schemes, agricultural institution & market, lobbying, advocacy & technological support with non- violent approach. Through the formation of various groups, beneficiaries would be trained to prepare themselves for the after effects of natural disaster. They would be taught about various ways of livelihood that can be exercised in flood prone area. People will be provided with information about the significance and use of various scientific methods which not only increase the fertility of soil but increases productivity also and provide a means of livelihood to the farmers round the year. In Uttar Pradesh, SES works in 30 districts including state capital of Lucknow. It includes rural & urban areas of those districts. What We Do SES in its project we particularlyfocus with unprivileged or vulnerable group. These groups comprise of child, women, youth & elderly people.SES does not involve in development directly but catalyze development process in target area, by involving community in each step (from planning to implement). SES believes in bottom up approach rather than of top up approach. It means, community tells about their problem/need to SES & SES tries to find out the way with involvement of them & other community stakeholders. SES considers it as inevitable way for success &sustainability of project. .

SES founder envisioned for a society where everyone achieve person happiness & wellbeing. A person can achieve personal happiness & wellbeing when his/her basic needs are fulfilled. If everyone can achieve happiness & wellbeing, people will live in peace & harmony.

VISION: Working For a Society Where Everyone Achieve Personal Happiness&Wellbeing.

Merely Envisioning or developing a vision statement won’t work in practicality. For it, one need to develop a mission which can turn SES founders vision into reality.

Part I: About SES

SES believes that poverty alleviation cannot be done overnight. There are several

issues

&causes which cannot be understand without any integrated approach. SES always tries to integrate all issue related to poverty whether it is health, education, agriculture, food security in changing environment circumstances. While working, SES tries to blend to various approaches. The reason of adopting this approach is not to miss knowledge & experience of various stakeholders in programme. For instance, In Agriculture, we try to incorporate traditional, indigenous knowledge along with scientific knowledge & technology. Our focus area of activities & work are as follows: Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security: The area where SES is operating, 70 % people are dependent on agriculture. Paddy is one of their main crops. But in last few years, flood has made their life miserable. Inundation of water or water logging in the field lead to loss of crop. Ultimately, he remains with meager sum if he works on other crops. Sometimes, it is difficult to have two time meals for his/her family. In the area, large numbers of women are involved in agriculture. They are burdened with household as well as field work. At the time of flood, when family lacks two time meals, she shares her part of food to children. Lack of food minus nutritional content lead them into various diseases common to the area.

Health: SES has started with its first health project in late 90s. The theme of project was “Aware people about Iodine Deficiency Disorder�. After that demand and issues of health care from village has led SES to other health issues in the region. Water Borne disease, Japanese Encephalitis, malaria & malnutrition are very common disease in the region. In the years, SES has focused on issue of maternal & infant mortality rate, transmission of HIV/AIDS, reproductive& child health, malnutrition, sexual & reproductive issue. Education: Education is recognized as one of the basic building block for development of human being and critical in poverty alleviation. It is consider an important millennium development

Part I: About SES

goal. In the villages of rural & slums of urban area, education is considered as least important. Attending school means loss of productivity to a household. A farmer involves their children in field. Sometimes elder child stay at home to take care of their younger when there are parents are busy in field work. Education is one of important focus area of SES. In its work it has promoted education for children, women or old man with several of its programme. There are some cases where SES stop prevented drop out in most of cases. Water & Sanitation: SES was born with local safe drinking water issue in town of Shohratgarh. SES has considered water as precious. Inadequate & safe sources lead to water borne disease. In some cases, Girls walk long distance to carry water.From time to time, SES has run various programme. At village level, it has sensitized community about water & sanitation issue & advocate for their issue with Village Health & Sanitation Committee (VHSC). SES considers Children as most important stakeholder in many of its programme. SES has implemented several programme in schools which caters issue of Water & Sanitation. Climate Change & Disaster Management: Generally, climate change is defined as a process of global warming, in part attributable to the ‘greenhouse gases’ generated by human activity. Irrespective of region, changes are both global, as with rising sea levels attributable

to ice-melt, and local, such as changes in rainfall patterns. In the target region Of SES, it has disturbed basic source of their livelihood i.e agriculture in form of flood & changing pattern of rainfall. Responses to climate change are to reduce the level or rate of change(mitigation) or manage its consequences (adaptation). Local people have tried to adapt in current scenario. In case of paddy, SES inspired community to do early paddy cultivation to avoid loss by flood, also using SRI technique. Gender Rights: Though SES worked with right based approach. But, SES also focus on women living in targeted region. In the region, women are always grappled with discrimination due to patriarchy & other social system. If a women is dalit, she is alienated thrice by caste (being

lower than others),by class(being most poor) & by gender (due to patriarchy).Issue like child Marriage, dowry & domestic violence(remains inside closets of house ). SES has tried to improve condition by setting up various CBOs for instance SHGs, involving them in income generation activity & building their capacity. How We Work: There is an advisory body of SES which forms its governing structure. Currently, there are 9 members. They advise on taking up of projects & budgets. On other hand, governing body is responsible for supervision of programmes. Secretary of SES manages day to day activities of organization. Acting Secretary with Secretary develop & supervise developmental programme, financial & organizational planning of organization of ongoing & upcoming projects. A project Coordinator is assigned to every project & is responsible for action & implementation of programme activities. Under Him, there is field workers & volunteer & help in smooth & impactful implementation of progarmme. Administration & Account department is fully responsible for administrative & financial activities of SES. These departments& a project head too monitor & evaluate basic programme activity regularly.

In SES, every staff is equal irrespective of their caste & religion. In addition to staff, there are number of consultants who give their inputs in programme from time to time. They are from field of Agriculture, WASH, Health, Horticulture, and Social science & Economy. Our partner organizations at local, state, national & international level are very crucial to work. We are grateful to their continuous contribution, support, feedback which has helped us to run programme effectively & efficiently.

FOOD SECURITY & AGRICULTURE: IN DISASTER PRONE AREA. “

“Socio Economic Empowerment of farmers in flood prone areas in Eastern U.P. with livelihood opportunities” It is evident that progress of any societyis inevitably linked with social & economic plights of their people. For progress, people need to act with their full might. Empowerment is one of the ways to move ahead. It can be done with creation of various local group like SHGs & farmer club along with strengthening process. SES found that SHG is created but there are still gaps which they need to overcome. What one cannot achieve as an individual can fulfill as member of groups with good understanding about his/her rights, privileges, roles & responsibilities as dignified member of society. The need of hour is their awareness about self, high self-esteem, self-confidence, courage, positive attitude, and risk taking ability, power to face challenges of daily life, gaining knowledge, new ideas & skill. As a group they can stand up as problem solver & planner for their own village. They also can enjoy privilege of economic benefit including saving, liberation from debt trap, economic skill for income generation activity & able to meet other needs. It is “people” who can turn around their fortune. In other words transformation of consciousness of alternatives & collective action to congregate appropriate chain to influence those factors that acts as barrier to meeting their aspiration. It needs to depart from not only focusing on financial angles but also other capacity and skills. Proposal emphasize on self-reliant community who are interested in their own development whether it is improving income from agriculture or other income generation activities.

The District of Siddharthnagar lies in eastern portion of Uttar Pradesh in between 27° 7’ to 27° 3’ North latitude and 82° 1’ to 83° 8’ East longitude and forms a part of Basti Division. It is bounded on the North by Nepal country, South by District SantKabir Nagar, East by District Maharajganj and on the West by the territories of District Balrampur. Its geographical shape is like a bowl with a length of 65 Kms. North to South having the total area of 2956 Sq. Kms, which is about 1.2% of the total area of U.P.Around 71.0 per cent of Main workers are engaged in agriculture as cultivators and agricultural

labourers. Around 79.0 percent of reporting area comes under the plough. The main crops are Paddy, Wheat, Arhar, Masoor and Sugarcane. The district is adversely affected with floods and water logging during monsoon season and this damages the crops and human property. On basis of aforesaid foundation said initially, a programme in intiated in 16 villages of Jogia block of district Siddharthnagar. SES has started programme “Socio Economic Empowerment of farmers in flood prone areas in district with livelihood opportunities�. SES has developed on these lines where people came together in a group such as Self Help Group & Farmers club. The aim of programme is to provide two time meals to 500 families in target area by enhancing their income. The activity of these groups is developed with participation of community members. First thing is strengthening of these community based organization. As more than 90 % people are dependent on farming activities in selected village. SES has formed Farmer club to catalyze the farming process. In the year ,total 25 farmers club were formed. From sowing to providing marketing/technological issue is forte of FC which helps fellow farmers to improve their lives. The farming activities taken up by FCs are: Crop Improvement, Vegetable production, Backyard cultivation, and new package of paddy, cash crop, paddy cultivation of SRI technique and conservation of Kala namak(in block Shohratgarh). The activity is supported by seed distribution to providing right kind of fertilizer. Farmer has developed their fertilizer like AmritPanni and Farm Yard Manure Pit. SES staff has also appeased farmers to do farming of Kala Namak. In years, area for kalanamak has been reduced but seeing mid- development in farming; more farmers are ready to do this activity from next years. While doing these activities, they were also provided with capacity building /Training by SES . An expert from particular issue has imparted training with participatory approach. In case of SRI, farmers were visited field outside the target area. In the case of SHG, people have developed saving attitude for any future emergency at decided interest rate. In the year , 21 SHGs were formed. On the other hand,Non-farm activities are related with self- help group. SES has planned to do goat rearing and buffalo keeping.On basis of survey, SES staff has selected (mainly women) who are interested in goat rearing (intensive village by 8 women and 2 people from non-intensive village).. Through availed revolving fund, young she-goat will be provided to each of the 10 poorest of the poor in

group. The understanding behind was that anybody whose goat gave birth , are required to return an equal number of goats to the group for redistribution to other members who did not get assistance during the first round. There is also study which tried to find out opportunity of milk marketing in the area. The target people are selected for activity. Other than performing activity in these groups, project staff provides information on government schemes & their rights in the scheme.

HEALTH: Life is not easy in rural & eastern part of Uttar Pradesh. People have to work hard in changing climate with various health issues. Villages face various health issues from birth to death. Maternal & Infant mortality is high in the region, premature babies, malnourished babies . In early part of their lives they face other facet of disease related to Sexual & reproductive health(SRH) issue. Traditional & economical pressure force parents to marry their children early. Sometimes, it lead to sexual disease or early pregnancy. As a result, they die at early age. Discussing reproductive & sexual health issue in home or age group considered as taboo. Men are too engaged in their physical hardship & most of times their disease are related to their work. Women are burdened with household work as well as farm activities. Generally, they are malnourished (mostly anemic), passed through several of pregnancies. Elder people are marginalized and undernourished. Lack of health insurance along with poor health service doubles their miseries. SES is reaching to one of backward part of eastern part of U.P.

Annual Report 2011-12


Part II: Progress & Achievement 2011-2012

REPRODUCTIVE & SEXUAL HEALTH OF YOUTH : “Increasing the reproductive & sexual health of young people by increasing age at marriage” Early Marriage and Early child Pregnancy is a multi-faceted problem; deep rooted in culture and system. It is also strongly related to economic circumstances, in addition to removing the economic burden on their parent’s household; younger bridge typically attain higher status husband with lower dowries. The impact of early marriage on girls and to a lesser extent on boys is wide ranging. It initiates a devastating cycle of poverty, exploitation and poor health. And early marriage almost always deprives girls of their basic right to education or participation in meaningful work, which contributes to persistent poverty. District Siddharthnagar is backward district of UP as well as known TARAI area. Literacy rate is very poor. On Basis of secondary data, Infant mortality Rate, Maternal Mortality Rate and reproductive health status is not satisfactory due to lack of information, lack of awareness and unavailability of qualitative health services.

WATER &SANITATION : In current scenario ,the most difficult challenge for community in rural as well as urban area is to get safe drinking water .India has 16 % of world population & 4 % of its fresh water resources. Inadequate access to safe water & sanitation services, coupled with poor hygiene practices, kills 3900 children everyday. In 2010, general assembly of United Nation declared safe & clean drinking water & sanitation is a human right essential. SES is born out of drinking water issue & it is always core focus of SES. SES is hosting organization of FANSA(Fresh Water Action Network South Asia) U.P. Chapter. In this context, SES aims to improve governance in WASH sector by strengthening the role of civil society in decision making. It considers both environmental & developmental aspect as crucial for realization of the right to water& sanitation for present and future generations. As FANSA U.P. Chapter is innascent stage, it is trying to sensitize various stakeholders from farmers to school children etc. SES with FANSA U.P. Chapter works in 8 districts of Uttar Pradesh on rotational basis.

population in India is solely depended

on ground water, which is depleting at a fast rate. In the urban areas though about 60% of the population is depended on surface water sources, the availability and quality are questionable. The way work of development has been done, it has depleted water level, affected biodiversity and quality of soil. It recognises that people and their livelihoods rely on the health and productivity of our mother earth.SES has organized two events. The place will be district Siddharthnagar (17THMARCH) & Lucknow City (19TH MARCH).The purpose of organizing two events is to create awareness on issue in rural & urban area simultaneously. In Lucknow, events were organized in Sunrise Public School, Kalyanpur.

benefit you by whatever method you do”. After several time visit of the place, SES has decided it to be firstprogramme which is directly benefit orphans. Out of a total of about 55 millions children of

Annual Report 2011-12


Part II: Progress & Achievement 2011-2012

ages 0-12 years, and an overall population of 150 millions. Today, orphans remain a burden of extended families although most of these are living from hand to mouth in a situation, these families who can hardly take care of their own children naturally find it almost impossible to take in an extra child. Such a school named – Brahmrishi Bawra SiddharthVidyapeeth is run in Uska Bazaar block of district Siddharthnagar. Siddharthnagar is one of the backward district of India Most of people are dependent on agriculture or unskillful work. They have no choices in life. For orphans the situation is even more difficult. With education and useful skills they can do whatever they want, otherwise they have no choice in life. If they want to do business they will be equipped to do it well. If they want to pursue higher education they will have the necessary knowledge, if they want to work for the government they can do the job well. People who are educated and can think about what is right and what is wrong will obey the rules and be of benefit to society. people who are poor and have no education have no choices, no discrimination between what is right and what is wrong, they don’t know how to take care of themselves or their family; they can become thieves, criminals- a problem to society. for orphans the situation is even more difficult. They have no one to properly care for them; they are without home, without basic livelihood and without opportunities. So it is more meaningful and urgent to build school to care for the orphan children. Through it orphans can have a good life and good care, can receive proper education and become good people who will know how to take care of themselves and others. Their knowledge and values will be passed on to their own children. In this way the school will gradually benefit the whole of society. “Hope (Helping Orphans By Providing Education & Empowerment)” Hope is initiated by SES which focuses on empowering orphan by providing education With support of community worldwide. An orphanage is run in Uska bazaar block of district siddharthnagar (Uttar Pradesh). During visit, Senior members Of official found that school needs cooking

Health Workers Count: SES has participated in health workers count campaign. It has integrated campaign in its health related programme. Health workers are critical to saving lives: they are the single most important element of any health service. Without them, no vaccine can be administered, no life-saving drugs prescribed, no family planning advice provided and no woman can be given expert care during childbirth. Without health workers conditions like pneumonia and diarrhoea – which can be treated easily by someone with the right skills, supplies and equipment – become deadly.Health workers are vital for progress on maternal and child survival. Ensuring that a health worker is within reach, and is trained, equipped and supported, is crucial to the achievement of Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5. Health workers are also vital for addressing MDG 6, non-communicable diseases, and other important health and development issues. Girls Not Brides, South Asia Strategic Planning Meeting: SES has participated in the first regional meeting of Girls Not Brides was held in New Delhi from 9 to 10 February 2012.
