Our Work

Chetana has initiated activities like Reproductive and Child Health (RCH) programme, enlisting women involvement in FP methods programme, sex education, campaign against early marriages with government support. It has conducted health camaps for ANC services, immunization, brain fever, AIDS awareness camps, baseline data survey for family health protection. As part of Campaign against child labour, meetings were conducted in Kutbullapur mandal of Rangareddy district.

Chetana is associated with the efforts of several individuals who have redeemed themselves in promoting the larger interests of the society. It has been working on environmental issues in Andhra Pradesh and in Hyderabad. In these campaigns, individuals from different walks of life are continuously supporting it: lawyers, doctors, academics, journalists, teachers, etc. In this 'broadband age' where young people now have a real voice via social media websites and blogging, youth has an increasingly important role to play in the programme. The programme relies on a strong network of youth, who are poised to set the direction of social change. Personnel presently associated with Chetana have been working on environment and development issues in Andhra Pradesh through various activities and initiatives. Due to them, this organization has enormous experience on issues of pollution and people's struggles associated with industrial pollution.

It is dedicated to the concept of sustainable development. Chetana aims to motivate people to organize efforts, which promote environmental preservation, ecological conservation and alternative models of development.

Chetana recognised the need to develop awareness and knowledge on agricultural issues for Indian farmers, especially women and disadvantaged sections. Farmers need to be exposed to wider issues, which would enable the Indian society to understand the changing scenarios and the range of choices being developed across the world. Most of the small and marginal farmers are not aware of the implications of policies and decisions, and also the fluctuations in the markets. Market knowledge of these sections has to be improved in order to empower them intellectually to respond to the need for their opinions and decisions.

Similarly, it has been working on understanding the Textile chain of production, especially related to cotton. In this chain, Chetana is working on documenting information related to poor handloom weavers and develop a framework for their development.
