Bride-IT- A Digital Entrepreneurship Training programme: Vimukti Pothnal
When one mentions INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN INDIA, the city that comes to mind is Bangalore in Karnataka. Known throughout the world as a leader in IT and innovation, our state’s most famous city is a synonym for “Silicon Valley” and information technology. But how many of us know Karnataka beyond Bangaluru? If we mention Manvi, how many would know that this under developed Taluka in North Karnataka also forms part of the vibrant, diverse fabric that is Karnataka? Not may, and that’s the sad reality of many of the neglected and backward districts, Panchayath, and talukas that exist in this beautiful state. Plagued by poor literacy, the devadasi system, caste system child marriage, migration, water scarcity, poverty and drought, Manvi Taluka, in Raichur district, is one of the most backward talukas in one of the most backward districts in Karnataka.

Vimukti in collaboration with likeminded NGOs from Raichur organized program on women’s land Rights at Kananada Bavan, Raichur. The objective of this program is that in most Indian families, women do not own any property in their own names, and do not get a share of parental property. For long, women were not supposed to have as much share in property as men had. Property rights of women in India remained largely an ignored and unaddressed issue.

Dharna Staged demanding crop loss compensation: Vimukti Pothnal
Vimukti in collaboration with NGO partners from Raichur district, on 30th of August, 2018, staged the Dharana in demanding crop loss compensation by walking 85 kilometers. The protesters said farmers were in distress due to scanty rainfall this season too. Many laborers have migrated in search of employment in the cities. Many farmers incurred loss due to the failures. Therefore, the government should declare Raichur as the drought affected district and initiative relief measures at the earliest. They also said, the government should waive all the crop loans borrowed from the nationalized banks. The loan clearance for Rs. 2 lakh waived off by the government should be issued to farmers. Fresh loans should be provided to take up cultivation.

Hence, medical camps are organized and conducted in several areas of villages, for the uneducated, poor and needy who cannot afford their medical expenses or do not have the knowledge of medical issues.
