Sub Thematic Area

Hospital infrastructure, medical camps, surgeries, healthcare awareness & rehabilitation

Project Synopsis

The project is being taken up to assist the poor people who could not get proper medical services in the area or could not afford to undergo primary diagnosis and treatment advice due to poverty. The project's objective is to provide basic health care and education to the villagers and motivate a healthy lifestyle. At the same time, the villagers would be provided with free health checkups, medicines, and referral services. These health camps are helpful in treating general ailments whereas severe health issues are diagnosed and referred to hospitals for proper care. These camps help not only treat the patients but also identify potential health disorders that, if otherwise unattended, may raise their healthcare burden. These generally include ENT, EYE checkups, orthopedic services, dental services, pathology facilities, and medical support.

Proposed Project Description

The project is being taken up to assist the poor people who could not get proper medical services in the area or could not afford to undergo primary diagnosis and treatment advice due to poverty. The objective of the project is to provide basic health care and education to the villagers and motivate a healthy lifestyle. At the same time, the villagers would be provided with free health checkups, medicines, and referral services. 

These health camps are useful in treating general ailments whereas severe health issues are diagnosed and referred to hospitals for proper care. These camps help in not only to treat the patients but also in identifying potential health disorders which if otherwise unattended may eventually raise their healthcare burden. These generally include ENT, EYE checkups, orthopedic services, dental services, pathology facilities, and medical support.

JRF would like to use its expertise along with the support of its local staff/ branches to create awareness of the organization of health camps so that villagers including artisans can take benefit from such camps. The camps would be organized with the support of a local healthcare provider. Adequate attention will be paid to the following aspects:

  • Continuous Process ("not an end in itself"): This project would not be a one-time activity. It would be designed in such a way that such camps are organized at regular intervals to provide continuous support to the village community.
  • Inclusiveness: The approach will be to bring together all key stakeholder groups (including marginalized and vulnerable groups) and try to provide services to them. Special care would be taken so that marginalized people can take benefit from the project.
  • Demand Driven: During the organization of camps, attempts would be made to identify specific problems, and based on the learning the next camp would focus on community needs related to health care.

About Jaipur Rugs Foundation

Jaipur Rugs Foundation (JRF) was established under the Rajasthan Public Trust Act in the year 2004 by Mr. Nand Kishore Chaudhary, founder of the JAIPUR group. JRF is a non-profit organization that catalyzes sustainable livelihoods for people engaged in the entire carpet value chain through enhanced artisanal and entrepreneurial skills. The overall work mandate of JRF is to reach out to remote rural areas and establish bonds with the underserved communities, especially women, enabling them to start weaving, not just rugs but also their own lives. Such weaving of lives is done through two intertwined verticals: 'entrepreneurship development and 'social development. Whereas the entrepreneurship development vertical focuses on the economic well-being of the artisans and their communities through skill development and livelihood support, the social development vertical focuses on their social well-being through interventions, awareness generation, and linkages.

Through the 'entrepreneurship development' vertical, the focus is on economic well-being by providing skill building, skill up-gradation, and leadership training in various aspects of the carpet value chain, thereby increasing the household earnings of the beneficiaries. Since most of the beneficiaries getting covered under these initiatives are women, such enhanced earnings and leadership training make meaningful contributions in their lives by alleviating poverty and career progression respectively. These initiatives infuse an entrepreneurial bent of mind in the beneficiaries, encouraging them to think like an owner, not like a worker, and take responsibility for their actions, thus strengthening the carpet value chain.

The ‘social development’ vertical focuses on their social wellbeing through interventions, awareness generation, and linkages on themes like functional literacy, health care, financial inclusion, etc.

These two verticals complement each other and facilitate the grassroots communities to advance in their socio-economic development trajectories. JRF has successfully evolved this model over the last several years.
