OUR MAJOR SERVICES

Handicraft Training

The project will provide alternative livelihoods skills training for 100 women to improve their incomes. The project advocates the objective of extending training for up gradation of skills and sustainable employment for women through a variety of action oriented projects which provide employment to women. There is a need to provide financial responsibilities making women useful to maintain their family.

Health Activities

The benefits of being active for physical and mental health are huge.  Being active helps release chemicals in your brain (endorphins), which have a positive effect on your mood,   not to mention the benefits to your heart, lungs, muscles and bones.  Getting out and being active is also a great way to manage stress.

 

Rural Housing

Our mission of building sound housing and living environments for poor people in the informal sector, Geard’s programs address basic civic and housing infrastructure needs, including water, sanitation, drainage, solid waste
management, roads, electricity/energy, low-income housing and secured land tenure.

Vocational Training

India’s youth faces serious problems of unemployment and underemployment. The causes are legion and include dropping out of high school because of poor education, needing to support one’s family at an early age, a lack of information on the job market, and, most importantly, not possessing the basic skills required by employers today.

Medicinal Plantation

Through the ages, medicinal and herbal plants have been used for a variety of purposes in India. Information on the importance and therapeutic nature of these plants was traditionally passed on from generation to generations by word of mouth. Today, however as urban Indians lose touch with nature, this wealth is all but lost.

Rain Water Harvesting

NGO has opened a special cell wherein volunteers are motivating residents of Jaipur to get the water harvesting done in their Houses or Localities. We’ve got a separate vehicle mounted bore machine for water
harvesting so that it can be done on short notice. So far more than 1300 houses/area water harvesting has been done in coordination with GEARDS on no profit basis.

Sanitation

Merely building more toilets will not produce the desired long-term benefits of sanitation – for that, we need a systemic value-chain approach that addresses behavior change and sustainable infrastructure. Changing mindsets, among those who produce the solution as well as those who consume it, is paramount. When that happens, the solution will self-sustain.

Joint Liability Group

A Joint Liability Group (JLG) is an informal group comprising of 4-10 individuals coming together for the purpose of availing bank loan on individual basis or through group mechanism against mutual guarantee. Generally, the members of a JLG would engage in a similar type of economic activity in the Agriculture and Allied Sector.
