Prevalence of rampant drug abuse amongst the youth, without any drug abuse treatment program; mothers and children out of school but involved in drug peddling and petty crimes, graduating in to pick-pocketers and child robbers, inspired a new approach to policing being power to prevent, correct and rehabilitate, rather than only arrest. The work continued to grow by leaps and bounds and moved beyond welfare policing to community empowerment.
The work of the organization in the last 26 years has covered areas of child education, skills development, family counseling, drug abuse treatment program, women empowerment, environment management-water, solar and sanitation, legal rights awareness, community development, healthcare, rural and youth leadership program and much more. As per estimates, direct beneficiaries of these programs since inception are 4,00,000. Based on the reach of the existing programs, daily beneficiaries, on an average are 10,000.
