TEEED trains students of Gandhigram Rural Institute, Dindigul and other students from various schools and colleges in Sanitary Inspector practical course. The students are trained in the following areas:
A growing problem not only in India but all over the globe is that students are more stressed than ever. In fact, India has one of the highest rate of suicides among people aged between 15 and 29. Although the reasons are myriad but failure in examination, unemployment, and depression are some the reasons why people put their life at risk.
A common cause of concern is the pressure from parents to do well in the class X and XII board exams. There have been many incidents in the past where students have committed suicide during exams and on the result day. But what can be so extreme that students decide to end their life?
The Psychologists suggest that students suffer from anxiety and traumatic disorder relating to fear of examination. The fear factor is the reason why students suffer from anxiety, depression, and the following consequences. And the fear not only comes from the school but also from parents, who go to extreme levels to push their children into getting better grades.
The best time of the life that students are supposed to enjoy and cherish is the time they are pushed to extreme levels which can be overwhelming for many.
In this regard, TEEED conducts periodical trainings to reduce the stress among students and the coping mechanisms to relieve from the stress. Our training programs have brought tremendous change in the minds of the students and many of them have overcome the fear of examinations.
We all want to be happy. But we sometimes think of happiness as a thing that happens to us — something we have no control over. It's easy to link the idea of happiness with the situation we're in. We might tell ourselves, "If only things were different, then I'd be happy."
But that's not really how happiness works. Research shows that just a small portion of happiness (only about 10%) depends on a person's situation. So where does most of our happiness come from?
Research have shown the following results who are the happy people:
About 48 per cent of children in India are suffering from some degree of malnutrition. According to the UNICEF, water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea and respiratory infections are the number one cause for child deaths in India. Children weakened by frequent diarrhoea episodes are more vulnerable to malnutrition and opportunistic infections such as pneumonia. With 638 million people defecating in the open and 44 per cent mothers disposing their children’s faeces in the open, there is a very high risk of microbial contamination (bacteria, viruses, amoeba) of water which causes diarrhoea in children. Also, diarrhoea and worm infection are two major health conditions that affect school children impacting their learning abilities.
According to the Public Health Association, only 53 per cent of the population wash hands with soap after defecation, 38 per cent wash hands with soap before eating and only 30 per cent wash hands with soap before preparing food. Only 11 per cent of the Indian rural families dispose child stools safely. 80 per cent children’s stools are left in the open or thrown into the garbage.
TEEED is creating awareness among the school children through education campaigns on the importance of preventive tools such as hand washing. Hand washing with soap is among the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent diarrhoeal diseases and pneumonia. Poor wash causes diarrhoea, which is the second biggest cause of death in children under five years.
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is not just about cleanliness. It is also about health care. Keeping our surroundings clean and stopping open defecation are the simplest measures of avoiding spread of communicable diseases. Most communicable diseases are water borne. If we drink clean water and keep ourselves clean, we can avoid a lot of diseases. TEEED is carrying out Swachh Bharat Programs in Madurai East Panchayat Union, Madurai district
One of the great advantages of training as a tool for motivating employees is that it creates multiple benefits for both employee and employer. In addition to the employee feeling more engaged and thus more motivated, that employee also gains new skills. At the same time, the employer benefits not just from a more motivated employee but also from one who is now better equipped to perform their duties. Realizing this need, TEEED is conducting motivational sessions for Corporate Employees of Madurai and the neighbouring districts. This has brought tremendous changes in the attitude of the corporate employees. They have increased positive attitude in the work place.
Dengue is a serious viral disease transmitted by the bite of the mosquito, Aedesaegypti. Dengue occurs in two forms: dengue fever and dengue haemorrhagic fever. Dengue fever is a severe, flu-like illness that affects older children and adults but rarely causes death. Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is a second more severe form, in which bleeding and occasionally shock occur, leading to death; it is most serious in children. Persons suspected of having dengue fever or DHF must see a doctor at once. Dengue haemorrhagic fever is a deadly disease and early diagnosis and treatment can save lives. Unless proper treatment is given promptly, the patient may go into shock and die.
The symptoms of dengue fever vary according to the age and general health of the patient. Infants and young children may have a fever with a measles-like rash, which is difficult to distinguish from influenza, measles, malaria, infectious hepatitis and other diseases with fever. Older children and adults may have similar symptoms or symptoms ranging from mild illness to very severe disease.
TEEED is carrying out Dengue awareness in and around Madurai district especially among women and children. We issue pamphlets to the public cautioning the causes of dengue and how could we prevent ourselves from getting the disease.
TEEED is carrying out the following Medical Camps in Madurai district. At least two camps are conducted every month depending on the availability of medical personnel.
We also do the referral services to people need further treatment on free or affordable cost. We also issue Health Cards to people identified for further treatment. We also create a database of these patients and the follow up.
TEEED is conducting Lifestyle Modification Training to various sections of people in Madurai. Lifestyle modification involves altering long-term habits, typically of eating or physical activity, and maintaining the new behaviour for months or years. Lifestyle modification can be used to treat a range of diseases, including obesity.Treatment is given for current generation while lot of awareness is done for the future younger generation. We motivate people with the following activities.
Environmental awareness proves important for several reasons; it fosters a sense of connection to the natural world, promotes sustainable development and encourages conservation of irreplaceable natural resources and vulnerable plant and animal species.
The need to spread environmental awareness is enormous in the context of successfully addressing environmental problems. It is linked to environmental education.
On the one hand, provision of environmental education creates greater awareness in individuals and communities with respect to putting environmental resources to use even while conserving them. On the other hand, greater environmental awareness increases the scope of environmental education—as a discipline as well as inclusion of aspects of it within the scope of other disciplines.
Global warming, air and water pollution, overuse of fertilizers, the negative implication of use of plastics and polythene, conservation of energy and fuel resources, all these are topics of current media debate.
Realizing this need, TEEED is conducting environmental awareness programmes in our target areas benefiting the women and children and the farming community.
Solid waste is the unwanted or useless solid materials generated from combined residential, industrial and commercial activities in a given area. It may be categorised according to its origin (domestic, industrial, commercial, construction or institutional); according to its contents (organic material, glass, metal, plastic paper etc); or according to hazard potential (toxic, non-toxin, flammable, radioactive, infectious etc). Management of solid waste reduces or eliminates adverse impacts on the environment and human health and supports economic development and improved quality of life. A number of processes are involved in effectively managing waste for a municipality. These include monitoring, collection, transport, processing, recycling and disposal.
TEEED is giving awareness and training on Solid Waste Management to SHGs women in Madurai district. The training has paved people to dispose their waste safely and productively.
