22 March: World Water Day  

22 Mar, 2019   (Serve Happiness Foundation)   - Nitin Tailor  

The rivers major source of water have an important role in our nation and Hindu mythology and are considered holy by all in the country. The civilizations of ancient India flourished on the banks of the rivers. Our major rivers (Ganga, Yamuna, Indus, Brahmaputra, Narmada, Tapi, Godavari, Krishna and Mahanadi )along with their numerous tributaries make up the river system of India.

Water pollution is a major environmental issue in India. Today more than half the rivers in India are polluted.

Let’s take a pledge today on World Water Day that we would never pollute our rivers and save the water.

I am deeply attached with Maa Narmada and she is always source of my inspiration. That’s why prerna yatra movement originated from Narmada Narmada Prerna Yatra and in future we have plan to organize special yatras by walk to spread river cleanliness awareness campaign in all the villages located at the bank of different rivers.

Narmade Har ??

Visit to Junaraj: Mini Kashmir of Gujarat during Narmada Prerna Yatra ( Rural Tourism )  

24 Dec, 2018   (Serve Happiness Foundation)   - Nitin Tailor  

   

 

Happiness is visiting Junaraj:Mini Kashmir in Narmada Prerna Yatra ( Rural Tourism Edition ) and interacting with the tribals for creative livelihood opportunities through rural tourism.

Having regained their territories and with the danger from the sultans of Ahmedabad receding, the rulers of Rajpipla decided to shift their capital in the latter half of the fifteenth century lower down to a scenic site, a bowl surrounded by the Satpura hills on the banks of the River Karjan. They built a new fort, the ruins of which are still in evidence. This came to be known as Junaraj.

Seeing the enchanting natural beauty of Junaraj, one can understand why Rajpipla is sometimes called ‘Switzerland of the East’ and ‘mini Kashmir’. After construction of a dam just as the Karjan emerges from the hills into the plains, water from the reservoir collects around Junaraj, forming a large lake. A temple of Lord Shiva still stands, along with smaller temples of other deities.

Through Narmada Prerna Yatra we are trying to create livelihood opportunities through tourism for the tribals residing in nearby villages.

These people are Afro-Indians who got settle down here 600 years back. According to one commonly accepted legend (Patel 1986), the founder of the Sidi settlement in Jambur in Gujarat is supposed to have originally come from Kano in Nigeria via the Sudan and Mecca after his Hajj pilgrimage. This leader was a wealthy merchant by the name of Bawa/Baba Ghor who first settled in (Ratanpor) the Rajpipla Hills near Bharuch and Khambat where he developed mining and trade in agate, the precious stone known as akik in India.They are also known for their special folk dance called “Dhamal”. In-spite of having rich culture and heritage this special tribe facing lots of problems. We had meeting with group of people including youth, women from Siddi community and discussed about the problems they are facing. The major problems were secondary education, English language, lack of confidence and lack of employment opportunities.

 




Unnati – Empowering Rural Women  

26 Nov, 2018   (Serve Happiness Foundation)   - Nitin Tailor  

Women are the ones who bear the actual pain and conceive generations after another. If they are empowered, it can only lead to a more flourishing, prosperous and humanistic society and nation at large! With the support of Hindalco Industries Ltd, Birla Copper Unit Dahej we have started Unnati Program to empower rural women through entrepreneurship.

       

We have designed the program in 2 phases. During the 1st phase we have sensitized about 900 rural women of 10 villages for entrepreneurship and make them aware of entrepreneurial opportunities in the Dahej- Bharuch region of Gujarat.

We have organized an interactive entrepreneurial session with them. The purpose was to give them an idea how to start the business and what are the key points to be taken care like loan facilities available, resource availability, target customer, marketing strategy, partnership proposition and qualitative product making etc.  At the end, women showed their interest in starting their own business. They have registered their name with the business idea.

During the 2nd phase selected participants would be provided the further in depth training and exposure visits to show how the whole process work and on what things they have to focus to start their business. Our aim is to start small social enterprises in the villages to empower the women and make them self independent.  It would also help them to boost their confident and give them opportunity to showcase their abilities and skills to the world.

 




Diwali Celebration by Serving Happiness To The Tribals of Narmada  

07 Nov, 2018   (Serve Happiness Foundation)   - Nitin Tailor  

Happiness is celebrating Diwali by serving happiness to the tribals of our beautiful Narmada region.

I felt myself really blessed by volunteering in free dental camp organized by DrVarun Vasava and his team at Khochrapada village near Sagbara and serve the tribals. There are hundreds of villages in rural Narmada who do not have access to basic healthcare facilities. Even they don’t have basic awareness about dental healthcare and dental treatment is too costly which they can’t afford. My dear friend Dr.Varun who belong from this region regularly conduct free dental camp since last 7 years. He has treated more than 6000 patients for free. He is also building small dental clinic in his village to provide free dental treatment to poor tribal people of this region.

Through Narmada Prerna Yatra ( Rural Tourism Edition ) we are also trying support such projects and role models who are working selflessly for the rural tribal people of this region.
