A Ray of Hope

Nagpur: The Tanishka Foundation has always been instrumental in solving social issues; right from civic problems to solving draught crisis in the city and the suburban areas, the Tanishka Foundation has always resolved issues effortlessly from the grass-root level. This time too, Tanishka members of Chinchbhavan came forward to the aid of around 50 issues. Members of the Tanishka Foundation helped these women in availing the benefit of the Sanjay Gandhi Niradhar scheme and Bal Yojana Scheme offered by the State Government. Under these schemes, an amount of Rs 800 would be deposited in their account on a monthly basis.

The success story of these inspiring women.

The beginning…

Mrs. Vaishali Sonone, Tanishka team coordinator, had come across the ‘Sanjay Gandhi Niradhar Scheme’ and ‘Bal Yojana Scheme’ through a poster put up at a public place. On inquiring about the scheme, she approached the Tehsil office to gather help and support from other Government officials.

What followed later…

Tanishka members took the initiative of getting birth certificates for all the women and also collected important documents such as their ration card, proof of residence and so on. All these documents were attached with an application for each case. It took the Tanishka team about one and a half year to push the applications forward to speed-up the process successfully.

Overcoming difficulties…

Hearing the transfer news of the Tehsildar who had promised to help them out, members started losing faith in the judicial system. However, the newly appointed Tehsildar agreed to help them out after hearing their concerns.
