Annual Report 2015-16
Visan Foundation, besides creating and streamlining new initiatives, undertook and successfully completed the following three programmes in 2015-16:
Project UDAAN in Partnership with Gurgaon Police
Under the project, we targeted the slum areas, EWS and BPL candidates, who were not able to work due to lack of training or their family conditions were such that they were forced to drop their studies. This project helped needy people through a wide range of support, techniques and initiatives, which aimed to develop their skills and knowledge.
The aim of the Gurgaon Police partnership was to channelize the energy of the unemployed youth and deter them from turning to crime, thus bringing harmony, thus working towards a crime free Millennium City of Gurgaon – A truly SMART CITY.
Project on Women Empowerment & Entrepreneurship
100 women were mobilised by Plan India NGO from the slums of Mangolpuri and Sultanpuri. The Delhi Police DCP Mr Vikramjeet Singh, IPS supported this initiative in his area. Self Defence classes were conducted by Delhi Police and they were given full support to practice on the road when they were ready.
The first batch was flagged off by DCP Sanjay Sen, IPS, at Madipur Metro station on green line. The women now ply at Madipur, Paschim Vihar (East) and Paschim Vihar (West) stations and their neighbouring areas.
