TCSRD believes that social, economic and environmental development lie at the heart of transformation. The enablers for all three critical elements of development are health, wellness and education. These help ensure long-term sustainability of interventions.

TCSRD has divided these into three main heads, which are:

  • Education (Shiksha Maitree)
  • Health & Nutrition
  • Drinking Water & Sanitation
  • Education (Shiksha Maitree)
    Education is one of the most important pillars which aid our socio-economic development. It is a fundamental right of every child of the age group of 5-14 years to complete formal school education. TCSRD runs programmes and works in various rural areas across India. From high dropout rates and lack of infrastructure to use of traditional teaching methods, TCSRD aims to overcome these issues with a single-minded objective - achieving ‘zero dropout’ in the operational areas.
  • Health & Nutrition
    One of the major reasons why people slip back below the poverty line is medical expenditure by vulnerable households. It becomes imperative that TCSRD facilitates communities for better health care, nutrition, safe drinking water & better sanitation facilities. By providing preventive and where possible curative health services, TCSRD acts as a bridge between the government and the community, facilitating access to government health services wherever possible. Additionally, TCSRD also strives to fill the gap by providing preventative and curative health services to the unserved population.
  • Drinking Water & Sanitation
    Under this pillar, the interventions are guided towards promoting clean and safe drinking water and good sanitation. We help provide clean water through roof rainwater harvesting structures, repair of hand pumps, supporting households with water purifier systems through Samridhhi and Swatch Tarang Project. Behaviour change programmes, Swachh Bharat Mission Cleanliness Drives, construction of toilets and sanitation units help create good sanitation in the rural areas.

Today, I am a practicing doctor at Baroda GMERS - Gotri. However, for the longest time, it felt like my dream to become a doctor will never become real. It was my father’s motivation, as well as TCSRD’s scholarship that allowed me to pursue my MBBS and work towards my dreams. Now I am preparing for my MD, and I hope to inspire many other girls like me to follow their dreams. Today, I am a practicing doctor at Baroda GMERS - Gotri.

Name of Intervention: Holistic Nutrition
Name of Beneficiary: Durgabai
Location: Pati Block, Barwani

Durgabai is 28 years old and was pregnant when the TCSRD team diagnosed her with severe anaemia as both her body weight (39.5 kg) and hemoglobin (6.4 gm) were low during routine haemoglobin estimation checkup. As Durgabai came from a poor family, she did not have the financial resources to visit the district hospital in Barwani. The TCSRD team provided Durgabai with IFA tablets and also counselled her to consume locally available green leafy vegetables, grains and other nutritious food, including jawar/bajra bread, okhra, pumpkin, moong, peanuts and more. Additionally, a field level worker and TCSRD supervisor visited her fortnightly for follow up. They continued counselling her and motivated her to consume protein and iron rich locally available food items along with IFA supplementation. TCSRD also provided seeds for HKG (Household Kitchen Garden) to assure green vegetables, while peer counselling played a vital role as the other women in the village helped and motivated her to consume IFA tablets and food and vegetables advised by TCSRD and AAA (ANM, ASHA, Anganwadi worker). Due to these efforts, Durgabai’s health improved, with her weight increasing to 43.5kg and her hemoglobin improving to 11.4 gm. And as her health improved, she was able to give birth to a healthy baby boy who weighed a healthy 2,750 gm.
