Citizen Awareness

Citizen Awareness

The importance of citizen awareness in a country like India is exceptionally high to increase awareness among poor people living in marginalized communities and poverty-stricken regions of India regarding their economic and legal rights. People living in remote areas belonging to less developed societies are vulnerable as well as powerless. Due to the lack of accessibility of required life-supporting facilities and lack of awareness about the fundamental human rights, people living in backward societies are unable to raise their voice against their rights that they are deprived of till now.

A central section of underprivileged people living in poorly maintained societies have little knowledge of human rights, social and legal rights and thus, when something wrong is done to them, they can't stand up for themselves nor the people living in their societies.

As a renowned NGO for social welfare in India, Hindrise Foundation ensures that most of the impoverished people living in marginalized communities will be made aware of their rights through the combined effort of volunteers and team members. We have taken the vow that we will create awareness among citizens regarding their civic rights along with their obligations.

A major chunk of the less privileged population living in rural parts of India cannot read and write, making them face issues in accessing authentic information. It's crucial for people from all the communities to understand their rights, such as the right to medical facilities, the right to legal assistance, the right to basic education, and several other rights.

Our members at the Hindrise Social Welfare Foundation will create awareness among the underprivileged masses about the several government bodies actively working for the welfare of less privileged ones, along with their roles and obligations towards the citizens of the country. Over the years, the Indian government has brought several schemes into the picture to support India's citizens, especially the less fortunate ones.

Some Well-Known Schemes Launched by Indian Government

Given below are some of the well-known schemes launched by the government of India-



MGNREGA (Extended as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Generation Act) serves one adult member of all the rural households with 100 days of assured annual wage employment. The scheme directs that around 60 % of the total expenditure under MGNREGA has to be on wages, and 40% of spending need to be on creating material assets.

Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana

Launched in 2016, this scheme has provided over eight crores LPG connections to families Below Poverty Line (BPL) with assistance of Rs 1600/connection. According to the statement made by government officials, Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana was launched to safeguard the health of children and women by granting them clean cooking fuel.

Deen Dayal National Rural Livelihood Mission

Originated in June 2011 by the Ministry of Rural Development, the scheme of Deen Dayal National Rural Livelihood Mission has been encompassing 68.4 million houses intents to extend support to women self-help groups. The scheme is applicable for seven crore rural and poor households all over 600 districts, 6 lakh villages, 2.5 lakh gram panchayats, and 6000 blocks of the nation through self-regulated SHGs and assist them for livelihood collectives. At least one woman member from every poor rural household would be sent under self-help groups in a time-bound method.

PM- Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme

A centrally-sponsored scheme known as the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme was introduced in the month of February in the year2019. Under it, a considerable section of farmer families all over India receives support via means of income of Rs 6,000 every year in three equal installments of Rs 2,000 in every four months.

Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana

Across the nation, there are around 20 crore women Jan Dhan beneficiaries. Initiated in August 2014, the financial inclusion scheme of Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana has been providing universal access to banking facilities with one bank account for every single household and giving the much-needed push to financial literacy, access to a pension, insurance, and credit.

Divyangjan Swavalamban Yojana

This scheme is helping the needy specially-abled individuals by assisting them with a concessional loan for all-round empowerment.

Integrated Programme for Older Persons

A scheme running since 1992, Integrated Programme for Older Persons centered on upliftment in the quality of life of senior citizen awareness by rendering basic conveniences like food, shelter, as well as medical care.

At the Hindrise Social Welfare Foundation, we will be increasing the awareness concerning these schemes amid necessitous families living in poverty-stricken areas so that they can take advantage of these schemes for their development and enhancement of life.

Raising Awareness about Domestic and Sexual Violence

Hindrise Foundation, a humanitarian NGO, is working towards fabricating consciousness as well as increasing awareness on several issues such as domestic violence, sexual harassment, and other critical issues concerning women and youth. In order to give wings to our mission of citizen awareness, we are endeavoring to identify and eradicate barriers related to gender via workshops and training programs.

Familiarizing Citizens with Ethical Values

Hindrise Social Welfare Foundation endeavors to familiarize the knowledge-deprived citizens with few of the positive values used in everyday life and make them understand that they must know their role for the societies and keep themselves well-versed with their rights.

Also, we are planning to organize learning groups for one and all. Discussions on various topics would increase the awareness level of underprivileged individuals living in slum or rural areas regarding their rights as well as sort out their matters. We believe that bringing change in deeply-rooted attitude in society is of extreme importance.

Our Hindrise Foundation is Creating Citizen Awareness about Child Marriage and Dowry

Our members at Hindrise Foundation create awareness amongst Indian citizens living in backward regions about the adverse effects of child marriage and legal consequences associated with it. We feel that the requirement of the time is to counsel poverty-stricken families.

Despite being forbidden by Indian law, Dowry still breathes in the backward regions of India. In order to prevent its occurrence, we make sure that community members should understand dowry laws and then only, further steps can be taken.

Assisting the Food God (Farmers) of our Country

At the Hindrise Social Welfare Foundation, we are aiming to uplift the way of living of Indian farmers who deserve respect and favor from the government in different forms. By organizing training sessions at different locations throughout the country, we make farmers familiar with the government resources accessible for them like fertilizer, the vaccine for animals, and subsidies for seeds. We ensure that government subsidies will be accessible to the maximum number of farmers.
