Since its inception in 1997, Umeed has reached out to 550 villages and benefited 12 million people of diverse communities with services in healthcare, social empowerment and community development. Our programmes Our Healthcare project ‘Health at the Doorstep’ aims to provide free primary healthcare (including medicines) to the rural people by taking a team of doctors and nurses in mobile vans to the doorstep.

We also organize periodic health check-ups for school children and senior citizens in Sangrur district. Umeed has joined hands with Airtel Bharti Schools, who are opening schools in rural areas, where it will carry out quarterly health checks for each student. Women’s Empowerment Umeed has successfully formed over 350 Self Help Group ‘Umeed Mahila Manch’ that consists of 15 to 20 women from similar economic strata from the same village. Till date Umeed has already made a difference to 4,000 women through this programme. Economic Empowerment To make the rural women economically independent, Umeed undertakes programmes that train women to become individual entrepreneurs by providing skills development training in bag making, soap and candle making, pickles and preserves, chalk making and bookbinding. Over 6,000 girls have been trained in cutting, stitching, embroidery and crochet work at Umeed stitching centers. Education and awareness generation Umeed in partnership with the Australian High Commission has in the past imparted elementary education to illiterate women.
