ACTIVITIES

NGO Activities : Socio Economic Development Society (SEDS) is a Secular, Non governmental Voluntary Development Organization registered under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 in 1999 with an ultimate objective of actualizing the dream of Grama Swaraj envisaged by our great Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. SEDS started its intervention in both rural and urban areas of Kasaragod, considered as one of the backward district of Kerala. SEDS completed 10 years of its existence with multidimensional activities, never compromising on Gandhiji’s principles. Initial intervention of SEDS focused on various awareness programmes for strengthening Local Self Governance Institutions and to promote people’s participation in governance and development activities. This was followed by providing capacity building training to various stake- holders of LSGI including youths, women with special focus on Dalits, Tribals and other marginalized sections of the society. Yet other important step taken by SEDS was formation of Self Help Groups (SHGs) among the weaker sections of the society so as to enhance their confidence and ability in self supporting livelihood activities. They were provided time bound capacity building trainings for effective and efficient management of SHGs. SEDS also liaisoned with various government agencies and channelised government funds/ grants to those SHGs who were interested in starting micro ventures in agriculture, poultry and other eco- friendly income generating activities. Environmental issues, one of the prime concerns on the existence of mankind on the universe are other important areas, where SEDS felt necessary to intervene by adopting various strategies. A series of Awareness/ Orientation/ Sensitisation programmes on issues like Global climate change, Global water crisis, Food crisis, Bio diversity, Pollution, Waste management, Protection of medicinal plants and other eco friendly themes. Seminars and Workshops on the above mentioned issues were organized and enabled the participants to interact with experts in their respective field. As a committed Social Development Organization, SEDS taken up the task of educating people on people friendly laws such an MNREGA, RTI Act, Domestic Violence Act and RTE Act, enacted by Central govt. from time to time, so as to protect them from social and environment exploitation and enable them to avail the rights as a citizen as well as the fruits of government schemes and programmes. Apart from orientation and training programmes, education materials like booklets, leaflets, brochure, on various subjects were published and widely dessiminated among the public. Currently we are in the process of implementing village based water shed projects in Vaninagar (Padre) Village of Enmakaje Panchayath and Nappachal Village of Kayyur-Cheemeni Panchayath by ensuring participation of the villagers. Many socially relevant programmes by various government and non government agencies were also sponsored by SEDS during these years.
