Project ‘Vastram’ – an Initiative of MoDe India

A bridge between having enough and having nothing...
Vastra (Cloth) is not just a tangible product, but has far deeper connotations. Clothes uphold self-esteem and are linked with health and wellness of human beings. Food, Clothing & Shelter demarcate the fundamental requirements of living human beings and also signify as an integral part of basic human rights as embodied in the Indian Constitutions. It is very unfortunate that due to weak financial conditions, in our country, many people are unable to secure these basic requirements for themselves and their families.
Under Project “Vastram”, MoDe facilitates collection of old /pre-owned clothes from individuals / social networks / societies and delivers them to the beneficiaries. In return, the bright smiles of contentment and blessings are conveyed from the recipients to the concerned donors.
The motto of Project Vastram is “Clothes for all”. Through this project, 'MoDe' reaches the two extreme sections of the society viz people having ample clothes and people who have limited or no access to clothes due to their social/economic or other factors.

મૉડ ઇન્ડિયા પ્રાયોજિત “પ્રોજેકટ વસ્ત્રમ્”
“પૂરતું હોવું અને કંઇ ન હોવું વચ્ચેનો સેતુ....”
‘વસ્ત્ર’ એ ફક્ત વસ્તુ નથી, પણ તેનાથી અનેક ગણું વિશેષ છે. વસ્ત્ર એ માનવીની ગરીમાનું રક્ષક છે, વસ્ત્ર એ સ્વસ્થતા અને સ્વાસ્થ્ય બન્ને સાથે જોડાયેલ બાબત છે, તથા એક પરિધાનની સાથે સાથે સંવિધાનમાં સમાવિષ્ઠ માનવિય અધિકાર પણ છે...
રોટી, કપડા અને મકાન – એ માનવમાત્રની પ્રાથમિક જરૂરીયાત છે, જેમાનો અમારો સંકલ્પ છે દરેક માટે વસ્ત્ર. પોતાની આર્થિક પરિસ્થિતિના લીધે પૂરતા કપડા પણ ન પહેરી શકે તેવા ભાઇ-બહેનો કે બાળકોના અંગ ઉપર અંગરખું એટલે કે વસ્ત્ર પહોંચાડવા એ આ કાર્યક્રમનો સંકલ્પ છે.
એક સંસ્થા તરીકેની સામાજિક જવાબદારીના ભાગ રૂપે અમો એ પૂરતું હોવું અને કંઇ ન હોવું એ બન્ને પરિસ્થિતિ વચ્ચે સેતુ બનવા માટેના પ્રયાસો હાથ ધર્યા છે. ‘પ્રૉજેક્ટ વસ્ત્રમ્” આ માટેનું પહેલું અને ખૂબ અગત્યનું પગથીયું છે, જેનો હેતુ છે દરેક માનવી માટે વસ્ત્ર.

The rationale is that if AWTCs – as an institute is capable enough with regard to the required knowledge, skills and resources, the quality of the trainings being imparted to the trainees will definitely be significant. Mode is instrumental in assessing the current capacity of the AWTCs and formulate a strategy to further strengthen them by providing technical inputs for improving the quality of training.

Project “Aangane Ajwalu”

The construction industry is the largest industry that comprises of migrant laborers who have left their native villages to find employment in big cities. These migrant workers travel from one area of work to another and live in temporary settlements, sometimes provided by the construction company, for the duration of construction project. Due to their migrant nature, they are deprived from the basic facilities like health, Nutrition, Education, sanitation etc. The situation is even more dreadful when they migrate with their families. Children of these workers are most vulnerable and are deprived from their basic rights like health, education, Nutrition etc. “MoDe” as an organization is eager to work for such children of migrant labourers in shaping their lives. Thus, MoDe initiated the project “Aangane Ajwalu” to provide integrated services i.e. Health, Nutrition and pre-primary education along with life skill education to the children of migrant laborers.

Improve Routine Immunization through SBCC (Social & Behaviour Change Communication)

Health & Nutrition indicators are critical components of a country’s development index. Poor health status of pregnant women, low birth weight, stunting and wasting of children are major causes of poor health and nutrition index.

In the state, only 56.2 % (RSOC 2013-14) of eligible beneficiaries received full immunization and drop out of DPT and OPV is as high as 20%. One of the primary reasons of low coverage or high drop out is that beneficiaries lack awareness about the need and importance of Routine Immunization for benefit and health of their children.(Source : RSOC 2013-14) This project is managed by New Concept and supported by UNICEF, New Delhi in coordination with Department of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Gujarat.
