They have organised multiple free-of-cost drives dedicated to bringing actionable changes in the community. With a minimum turnout of 150 people per drive, Ashwin Malik Meshram Foundation has impacted thousands of locals to date.
Education: AMMF, under their initiative Disha – Ujjwal Bhavishya Ki Ore, organizes Career Guidance and Counselling Sessions for the students who have cleared their X and XII examinations. The sessions are conducted by expert counsellors, who help the students understand the various career options available to them while explaining the admission process for each to avoid parents’ and students’ anxiety.
Employment: Under the initiative ‘Ghar Ghar Rozgar,’ the Foundation has been working towards facilitating employment opportunities for the locals. Acting as a link between corporates and the candidates, AMMF helps people from various backgrounds find several blue-and white-collar jobs like administration, accounting, security guards, delivery men, maintenance, etc. with their partner organisations.
Healthcare: Under the Healthcare sector, a Sanitary Pad Donation Drive called ‘Saheli’ aims to educate underprivileged women about the importance of personal hygiene, and to create a safe space for them to talk and discuss the various issues that they face. The volunteers create awareness about the various health issues for women like PCOD, postpartum depression, cervical cancer, etc. A three-month supply of sanitary pads is provided to women in order to promote a healthy lifestyle.
On this initiative, Ashwin Malik Meshram, Chairman, Ashwin Malik Meshram Foundation said, “Education and employment have the power to transform the situation for any family. And we, at AMMF, are doing our part by making education and employment accessible to families in need.”
To promote the three sectors of Education, Employment and Healthcare, and to decrease the knowledge gap, the Foundation also works on several other initiatives like Hum Honge Kamyab – Let’s Bridge The Digital Divide, Choose Life Not Addiction – Alcohol De-addiction Sessions, Shakti – Sashakt Naari Se Hi Banega Sashakt Samaaj, Food For All – Let’s Take A Bite Out Of Hunger, etc.
