Le besoin : quel problème tentez-vous de résoudre ?
In 2009, the Khan Market Labour Camp slums where Kutumb originally began its work was demolished. The community was displaced to Ghevra, 35 Kms away from the inner city. Like a lot of other newly formed resettlement slum community, it faces several challenges in terms of accessibility, lack of proper drainage and sewage, lack of a proper supply of potable water, a mal-functional Public Health Unit and poor accessibility to healthcare – the nearest government hospital, Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, is 15 kms away from the community. It’s a severe situation in Ghevra and we are planning a gender-sensitive community development project. Its a fact that in every adverse situation, women and children face the worst of the conditions, we have therefore, planned to take up their cause primarily.
La solution: quelle solution proposez-vous ? Soyez précis !
After interacting with the community in Ghevra we have several observations: The community has to struggle daily for the basic conditions necessary for a normal life. While men are the major sources of income, women spear-head the daily struggle by running the household and looking after children. Health is a major concern in the community and needless to say, the worst affected are women and children. Apart from economic conditions, we have identified many socio-cultural reasons that act as a hurdle to proper health care for women and children. We have planned series of workshops to raise awareness on gender equity leading to equal right on nutrition, hygiene and health provisions. We plan to hold FGDs regularly with two groups - girls (14-21 years) and women (22-35 years), covering the reproductive period of women's life. We aim to build up self-administrative groups where they can take up community issues affecting health and engage in advocacy and activism for better conditions.

The Kutumb Foundation is an education based organization and works mostly to build capacities in children and young people.All program at Kutumb are youth lead and managed(Peer-to-Peer leadership approach).Project SFOORTI will adhere to our original approach:(i) educate and build capacities through non-traditional,innovative mediums; and (ii)Build and encourage Peer-to-Peer leadership. The main target of the program will be young women from 15-25 years and will also involve young boys of the same age group (inclusive gender sensitization).The young people will be trained to be our Community-Peer-Leaders and help us reach out to a larger audience of older women in the 25 to 40 years age bracket. The young men and women will be sensitized through workshops on Gender and Identity,Gender and Equality, Gender and Rights,Gender and Health,Sexuality,and Sexual and Reproductive Health.The trained young women would then help us to reach out to the older women who are already married and may have children.The older women will be engaged through Focused Group Discussions and workshops.The community will be engaged through regular camps on advocacy and health issues.To address another challenge faced by the community - lack of opportunities for the young people, Kutumb will create a Community Resource Center in Ghevra which will be equipped with computers and basic computer training will be imparted to the young people.The center will be lead and managed by duly trained young people from the community, it will host workshops,encourage women's participation and with a focus on health.

We have done a thorough research and identified our peers.For volunteers we will tie up with organisations and universities/colleges-Pravah,Youth Reach,Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College,Delhi School of Social Work etc.For gender workshops we will tie up with organisations like Jagori,Sahyog,Y.P. Foundation and others.For health camps we will tie up with Swasthagram, Tarshi etc.For sharing resources,we will work in a cooperative model with Child Survival India.They are already working in Ghevra but reach out only to older women.Kutumb will spearhead the youth movement in Ghevra by engaging them in a capacity building model to raise awareness on gender and equity in accessing Healthcare.We believe our biggest competitor will be the existing socio-political order that we have to negotiate.

Création de l'organisation : nous voulons tout savoir sur votre déclic. Expliquez-nous oú et quand les fondateurs se sont rendu compte que cette solution possédait un véritable potentiel pour changer le monde.
I had joined Kutumb a year back and since then I had only heard happier stories of progress Kutumb was making before the devastation happened-the demolition of Khan Market Labour Camp Slums in January,2009.Many lives changed overnight in the light of forced displacement.I heard about the back of the beyond place,Ghevra, which takes easily 2 hours to reach even if you take the metro from Rajiv Chowk.Then came an opportunity to visit Ghevra with volunteers from IIT, Delhi who came to us through Pravah for an Urban Exposure Walk in March 2011.I was baffled to see the complete lack of planning;we walked endlessly without a single tree,we sat in a dilapidated, empty plot under the blazing sun,no drainage,sewage and no potable water supply.Diseases were common but what was not,was a functional public health unit.The young people had resigned to their fates but when they saw us all they said was,"didi,Kutumb ko yaha leker aao(get Kutumb here).I had a promise to keep.That was my 'Aha!' moment.
Décrivez le but de votre initiative, en insistant sur les résultats que vous souhaitez obtenir
Kapil is the President and founding member of The Kutumb Foundation.He is actively involved since its inception in 2002.Kutumb's vision was to create a space that would provide educational & capacity building opportunities to children & young people from under-privileged backgrounds.I am Nandini;I joined Kutumb as the only full-time employee in 2010!The Kutumb experience is special because it relates to my own philosophy & approach.Our common vision is to educate & build capacities through creative arts & innovation,give space to individual ideas,encourage peer-to-peer learning and promote peer leadership.The organisation aims at inclusive,sustainable development & holds the 'community' as the all-important entity.Kutumb believes mutual learning is vital for effective community development
Jusqu'à ce jour, quels résultats a obtenu votre projet ?
Since Kutumb started working in 2002 with the Khan Market Labour Camp Slums,there has been some remarkable achievements.The number of children increased continuously as our out-reach expanded.Today we work in Khan Market,Nirmal Primary School-Pandara Road,Nizamuddin;we have initiated community interactions & need-assessments survey at Ghevra;we conduct creative workshops across the NCR through various tie-ups.Two of the children who participated in the football-based-life-skills program,Goal of Life,today lead & manage it in the several places we work.Two of our children who learnt puppetry through Kutumb are professional puppeteers with Katkatha.One of our young leaders hold an important position in a reputed dance school in Delhi,one of them is working with the Income Tax Department;several of the young members have initiated their own entrepreneurial ventures.Through partner organisations,we provide opportunities of growth to our young members.Peer leadership is our strength.
Quelles sont vos prévisions en termes d'impact au cours des cinq prochaines années ?
SFOORTI aims at Gender Equity Project in Healthcare with a focus on Maternal & Child Health.The high rates of maternal and child mortality is often influenced by traditional & cultural practices which encourages the society to neglect proper care for women affecting their health negatively.Girls often suffer from malnutrition,thus,the high rates of anemia among the Indian women (a major factor for high maternal and child mortality).The project will address gender issues,socio-cultural aspects of healthcare,challenge unscientific & harmful traditional practices,raise awareness on sexual & reproductive health;generate community participation & leadership for advocating to improve better civic facilities and access to healthcare.It will create a computerized resource center for the youth.
Quels sont les obstacles qui risquent de freiner votre projet ? Comment pensez-vous les surmonter ?
The challenge to this project is the existing socio-political conditions.Socially,the target community is predominantly patriarchal & discourage women's participation in public sphere(Women are not encouraged to study or work).Most women are ignorant & lack awareness on issues related to their health,such as,sexual & reproduction health.Therefore,it will be a challenge to engage women in discussions on issues that are taboo for them.Another challenge will be to get young women & men participate in community action, together.We will overcome this by regular FGDs,workshops,film screenings etc.in separate gender-groups or together,as required.Advocacy for civic amenities against a corrupt and bureaucratic system will be a challenge but will be addressed through capacity building workshops.

Actuellement, votre projet cible-t-il d'autres populations, lieux ou marchés spécifiques ? Si oui, lesquels et pourquoi ?
Kutumb continues to run from Khan Market where we had originally began working.At our alternate-education program,INDRADHANUSH(ID) & GOAL OF LIFE(GOL)-football based life-skills program,we get children from the servant quarters,children from the Khan Market crossing & from the nearby Sai Baba Mandir,Lodhi Road,crossing.GOL also takes place at Nizamuddin with the children living in the slums behind Sunder Nursery.SFOORTI,will be implemented at Ghevra where we will work with the displaced slum communities to address gender equity in healthcare & enable gender-sensitive community development.
Quel environnement et quels facteurs organisationnels internes font la réussite de votre projet ?
Kutumb runs through a non-hierarchical,democratic,participatory model.It encourages community lead initiatives and upholds the peer-to-peer learning and leadership model.Kutumb empowers young people to enable them to make their own choices rather than look out for messiahs on whom they can depend.We strive to bring informed conversations to community and follow a bottom-up approach.Our innovation will be successful owing to the fact that the decision making power and accountability will rest with the community (young women and men).We will also approach community work through a cooperative model (liaisoning with other organisations).The staff will play the role of guides and provide support,the organisation will be catalyst,while,the real innovators will be the community youth members.
