The VUP has helped address a broad range of development needs across various villages. Certain special interventions carried out under the Programme are as follows:
As part of its VUP, Hand in Hand spearheads an Integrated Livestock Development Programme to support the farming community with both technical know-how as well as livestock healthcare through systematic and scientific animal husbandry. Partnering with government bodies, Hand in Hand conducts animal healthcare camps where farmers can get their livestock immunised against infectious diseases and treat them for infertility and other chronic conditions. This has helped farmers adopt scientific livestock rearing methods that have led to higher milk yields and better incomes.
CLEAN & SAFE DRINKING WATER
Another special intervention implemented by Hand in Hand, under its VUP, is to ensure that schoolchildren and villagers have access to clean & safe drinking water. This is done through the installation of Reverse Osmosis units for water purification and provision of bore wells in villages and schools which lack potable water.
