The slum community of Tadiwala Road is home to around 70,000 people, many of whom are enrolled in our programmes or join in our frequent celebrations. The Head Office of Deep Griha Society is located in the Family Welfare Centre on Tadiwala Road in central Pune, not far from the railway station.
The main problems faced by this community are poor healthcare, hygiene and poverty, which in turn leads to a low standard of education and high illiteracy rate. Because of the large population of this community, many of our programmes operate from this Family Welfare Centre – not only to provide immediate care and support but also to empower our beneficiaries to become more self-sufficient.
From the Tadiwala Road Family Welfare Centre we operate the Medical Clinic, Childcare programme, Youth Empowerment, in the form of the DGS Tech Mahindra Smart Vocational Training Centre, Child Development, and Women’s Empowerment. Birthday parties are also frequently held in the Family Welfare Centre for the children enrolled in the Aadhar Kendra Child Sponsorship scheme.
Field workers also serve the community here, in the form of maternal healthcare delivered by the SureStart programme, HIV awareness with DISHA, and medical health-checks.
