NGO work during pandemic-
1. During pandemic we conducted online sessions from many platforms like Humans of Bombay, jijau.com, Jammu and Kashmir Foundation etc.
2. Also in pandemic we successfully organized online awareness sessions about periods. We also donated menstrual hygiene kit to police and underprivileged women.
3.National nutrition week celebration. We celebrated whole week by making awareness on nutrition for women in various age groups, nutrition during
pregnancy and periods. nutrition for anemia, nutrition for Covid patients, nutrition for breast feeding mothers, nutrition for kids ,nutrition for adults and many more. We also arranged programs with school going children. Various competitions were held. In one nutritious dish making competition Ran Bhaji Information competition students of various age groups participated in competition and they got aware of importance of nutrition in their life and for their families too.

In initial days ,I successfully implemented a project named SWAMINI DARUBANDI ANDOLAN (Anti Alcohol Campaign) through Deaddiction program.
The project intervention aimed at to make Yavatmal as a completely dry and liquor free district. In this campaign, a 125 km long padyatra organized from Yavatmal to Nagpur during the winter. Assembly session of Maharashtra from 4th to 9th December. In this padyatra more than 10 thousand women took part. Also march on houses of MLAs of Vani Padharkawada, Umarkhed, etc. Swamini has organized 23 Andolans in total.

Consumption of carry bags in Yavatmal city is approximately 6 lakhs per day. None of these bags were recycled and subsequently it was causing serious environment and health hazards. For this, we started cleaning plastic bags of some areas of the city. Also we encouraged people to avoid use of plastic bags and distributed cloth and paper bags.

Water scarcity is critical issue in our Vidarbha Region of Maharashtra State. To solve this issue, with the help of government, administration and citizens, we deslited the Nilona dam for increasing the water level and slits were given free of cost to farmers to increase the fertility of farms. More than 12000 people participated in this project.

For fund raising for cancer patients, I lead the campaign of collecting old newspapers.

More than 25 schools & collages, librarians, Public organizations participated in this campaign.
