Survey on children with Disability: Vimukti Pothnal
“Disabled children in Manvi Taluka miss out due to lack of support services…”
On 27th April 2018, Vimukti with the collaboration of Ensemble Agissons, France, under “HEALTH FOR ALL” project involving more than 16 staff actively participated and identified differently abled children in 16 villages of our working area. Worldwide, 89% of children go to school. However, only 2% of Children with disability in Manvi Taluka from low and middle income families attend school. People with disabilities have generally poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is largely due to the lack of services available to them and the many obstacles they face in their everyday lives.

Survey on progress on new project “Bridget IT- Digital Entrepreneur program: Vimukti Pothnal
In recent years, there has been paradigm shift in the development of youth in India with a huge focus on livelihood development through micro entrepreneurship. A severe lack of job opportunities for youth, especially rural youth, has led to entrepreneurship, even at the micro level, as a necessary and viable alternative for livelihood generation. Providing the opportunity for youth to successfully start and run a small business will improve rural economy and lead to better quality of life for the youth, their families, and their communities. Promoting rural enterprise will also serve as a key to stem the migration of youth and bring about a reduction in the number of youth who move away from their communities in search of employment elsewhere. With the advancement of technology, and the ever growing reliance on digitalisation, rural communities are fast being left behind on the availability of technology based services.

Voters’ Awareness and its Importance: Vimukti Pothnal
Vimukti Charitable Trust®, Pothnal, organized mass awareness program on voting; with an aim to promote democratic values the campaign leverages both online and offline channels to make voters aware of the values of their invaluable vote and how each vote can strengthen democracy. In democracy, it is not simply enough to inform voters about election dates. In order to help the electorates take an informed decision, it is quintessential to sensitize them about the importance of participating in the electoral process. Moreover, voters need to be educated about the process and made aware of the political parties, their manifestos, backgrounds of the contesting candidates and armed with several other information’s to help them cast a valuable and ‘enlightened’ vote. Three village people benefited from this mass awareness program.

Raichur Women were on a 71-Day Protest Demanding Liquor Ban Ahead of Elections : Vimukti pothnal
Women from Raichur are urging the government, “Please stop the sale of liquor!” In a 71-day protest, which began on February 20, the women are demanding to ban the cause of problems in their personal lives. Mariyamm a member of Vimukti staff stated “We have chosen 71 days because it has been 71 years since India has been declared independent but us women still lead enslaved lives.” She added, “The wretched liquor has ruined our lives – ask the women here. Many of them are regularly beaten up by their drunken husbands and sons. Rampant alcoholism has eaten up the earnings of most families. What is worse is an even boy as young as 13 and 14 have begun drinking!” The protest is taking place in a shamiana in the Mahatma Gandhi stadium complex in Raichur city, Karnataka. The women participating in the protest are boiling with anger and do not plan to move until the problem of alcoholism is solved. They are infuriated by the fact that the state suffering water scarcity is abundant in the supply of alcohol. “Beeru beda, neeru beku; We don’t want alcohol, we want water,“ demanded women.
