Training imparted to animators,
community members on various RTF schemes, and with other Govt.
schemes. VCT team in turn relayed the information on to the people
in the villages also. Initially, the villagers had difficulty
believing what the team had to tell them. Soon they started not only
believing but liking the information.
VCT animators first started with imparting awareness to people in
small groups. And it was easy to allay people’s doubts. The team
also made use of lots of kananda materials on RTF schemes, collected
from various sources, which were widely distributed and read out to
SHGs for the sake of those who cannot read them.
Through regular home visits, awareness was generated among people on
various schemes. About 20 women were guided to apply for widows and
old age pension.
