Reproductive Child Health ProgramSince its inception in the year 1999, the project attempted at creating a need for RCH services for Panitanki's inhabitants and ensuring basic reproductive health care services to the poor and marginalised section of the population through community participation and empowerment, mobilisation of existing resources and realignment and convergence of services. The broad objective are family planning awareness, providing services for maternal and child health services through referrals, training government health care providers and other NGOs in population control and maternal health and raising awareness among adolescents regarding family life and safe sex. The last 1 year has seen an increase in pregnancy registration, institutional deliveries and more active involvement of male members, etc.
Cross Border Intervention:

Cross Border InterventionOur main focus while working for the last 1 year on the prevention of girl trafficking in Panitanki, Darjeeling district, was on awareness generation and sensitising people in a holistic manner. Skill building helps to empower women economically as well as socially and gives them the confidence to form Mahila Mandals and identify and address their problems. In the month of October, Bhoruka organised a life skill training programme in Panitanki. 33 women were trained in fruit processing and preservation by trained personnel from the Government of West Bengal, 37 adolescents were trained in handwork and tailoring and 32 members of an adolescent-women group got training on papad making.
