FEED THE HUNGER PROJECT
PRIMARY HEALTH CARE (PHC)
TECHNICAL (COMPUTER) TRAINING
AACT works with the mission to help bridge the gap for those children who need education and have no access to the facilities for learning existing in our society.
AACT started in 2015 to work towards providing a learning environment which can lead to a strong educational foundation as well as help a child in identifying the uniqueness within. It is a trust managed by Mr.K.Amalan registered as a Public Charitable Trust in Chennai, India.
AACT reaches out to children who belong to socio-economically marginalized sections of society, majority of them have parents who are illiterate/ semi-literate and work as domestic servants, industrial workers, rickshaw-pullers, street vendors, plumbers and carpenters.
A thorough research on models existing for children in need of care & protection and opportunities for disadvantaged women and youth helped us develop innovative models across all our initiatives. The journey had many hurdles but AACT’s dynamism and your unflinching support helped sustain it.
PROJECT - FEED THE HUNGER PROJECT
The midday meal programme is designed to improve the nutritional status of students. The programme supplies free lunches on working days for children in primary and higher educational in various institutions in the state.
Mid-day meal is a wholesome freshly-cooked lunch served to school children in India.
On November 28, 2001 the Supreme Court of India passed an order stating:
"We direct the State Governments/Union Territories to implement the Mid-Day Meal Scheme by providing every child in every Government and Government assisted Primary School with a prepared mid-day meal."
Mid-Day Meal Scheme aims to:
avoid classroom hunger
increase school enrolment
increase school attendance
improve socialisation among castes
address malnutrition and
empower women through employment
Quality and Food Safety are the primary ingredients at each of the implementation process. Our project provides organizations to review the quality of the mid-day meals we prepare and serve children.
To maintain the quality of the meal, standardization of recipes across all locations has been undertaken.
We strive to ensure that children not only have access to 'unlimited food for education' but also to prescribed quantities of the nutrition to consistently maintain quality of the meal.
We set up a kitchen, carry out the day to day operations of preparing meals and maintain its running costs.
In urban areas where a centralized kitchen setup is possible for a cluster of schools, cooking may wherever appropriate, be undertaken in a centralized kitchen and cooked hot meal may then be transported under hygienic conditions through a reliable transport system to various schools. There may be one or more such nodal kitchen(s) in an urban area, depending on the number of clusters which they serve.
We bridge the gap of the students nutritional requirement to a great extent. We have also been able to take care of anemia in growing children to a large extent. In addition mothers of the children are aware of what kind of balanced diet they can give to the children and how they can choose food within their resources that still can provide good nutrition to their children.
The picture is about the students in the schools and the colleges. 50% of the corporation school children and 30% of the government and the private school children come to the school without breakfast.
The Government colleges in the recent past admit more number of students from the lower middle class especially slums as the upper middle class people mostly seek admission from private schools & colleges
The students who are the beneficiary of the midday meals program when they enter colleges, they are left without lunch in large number. The worst affected are the women colleges. The study shows in Chennai city among the major 3 women colleges, an average of 400-600 students in each college are left without lunch.
Their parents from slum areas are from the labor class, who pay least importance to the daily needs of the children. In the above said circumstances, these children suffer not only hunger but also related to malnutrition, anemia andmetabolic illness.
Our Trust (AACT) will serve the needy through its ‘FEED THE HUNGER’ program; the organization would like to get the food materials from the major hotels to store them and to distribute them to all the deserved colleges
PROJECT – PRIMARY HEALTH CARE (PHC)
The objective is to improve and enhance the services offered by Primary Health Centers (PHCs) in the rural communities of India.
We propose to do this by applying novel solutions that take advantage of developments in harnessing solar power, computers, and information technology. Our strategy is to use technology to provide effective early medical intervention, deliver expert health care, and minimize the inconvenience caused to patients and health-workers from poor logistics and long travel time.
An equally important role of PHCs is to provide health education emphasizing family planning, hygiene, sanitation, and prevention of communicable diseases. A final step in this process will happen through video consulting and examination, a technology we anticipate becoming available in rural areas.
Primary health care (PHC) is of special importance in addressing these health problems. PHC is the level of care nearest to the community and with a continuous relationship with all people. Strong primary care is the core element of meeting community health care needs, preventing of communicable infectious and non-infectious diseases and also for ensuring effective management of health problems. Strong PHC helps to control the costs of the health system through coordinating care and managing interfaces with other specialties.
Hence PHC takes responsibility for a needs-based allocation of scarce resources. It can be used as an efficient tool for health promotion and disease prevention and for more equitable allocation of overall health care resources to all population groups.
While the importance of PHC is without controversy, the equitable availability of high quality primary health care personnel and resources is a big challenge for all.
Location of PHC:
5. Public resort places
6. Middle class area
All the patients for emergency
Primary health care kit
1. BP apparatus
3. Minimal injury care kit
4. Treatment for minor ailments (fever etc)
5. Assessment of major illness and refer to doctor
6. Doctor visit will be done by once in a week.
PROJECT - TECHNICAL (COMPUTER) TRAINING
We are providing Technical Training for the poor students (below poverty line), girl Students (for women Empowerment) who are studying in Government school and corporation school or Discontinued from school.
Developments in internet and multimedia technologies are the basic enabler of e-learning, with consulting, content, technologies, services and support being identified as the five key sectors of the e-learning industry.
As with the other segments in the IT industry that have been greatly impacted by the revolutionary changes taking place in the areas of technology, the training market too is getting affected by some of the new developments. We provide these training by our real-time professionals from the IT industries.
Carrier Guidance: We provide carrier guidance to our member, through our career guidance program (team), which we screen each member individually and provide appropriate training in the field to match their talent. We also provide our members with updated market status, growth and future trends of their field.
Our special placement cell working in hand to hand with our carrier Guidance Team would provide job placement assistance to our members. This placement cell would take care of each member individually and provide the service and assistance till he/she lands on suitable jobs.
This project is to promote the education for the poor people who study in government schools. The students from slum is not able to concentrate in studies due to family problems, social distraction etc.,
The main aim of the project is to give the space and time for those students from slum in schools.
We provide evening snacks (5pm), night dinner (8pm) for 100 students (mostly 10th and 12th students).
We provide coaching for each and every student in the evening by separate faculty for each subject. The study time is between 5 pm to 8 pm.
