India is a densely populated country where a large number of people live without access to the basic education and primary health facilities. The situation is more complex in rural villages comparing to the urban areas.
Their houses are poorly established and do not have proper supply of water and electricity. They somehow manage little water from resources available at the distant places and hardly think of having shower, clean their cloths and renovate their shelters.
In addition to their poor socio economic condition, another major cause of their sufferings is lack of education and public awareness.
Plan to Empower, time to time do awareness programme related to health, education, sanitation and social standards with help of volunteer Doctors, who devote their time for the betterment of the society. Awareness programmes content the following objectives:-
