Prevailing poor health status of the community and circumstances in accessibility to health services were the main focus behind starting health focused interventions. The main object of the health related activities is to generate awareness on different aspects of health among community and to ensure services in reach the community.

Women Empowerment:

Women are one of the most vulnerable groups of society. They are the worst victims of kind of crimes. In the absences of legal awareness it almost becomes impossible for them to seek justice for themselves. Empowering women with the knowledge of legal system and laws for them to protect from all kind of injustice has been primary activity for the society. SFUW work on the concept of linkage of women to livelihood activities because as they will become financially strong then most of the problems they are facing will be minimized automatically. SFUW has organized various camps focusing on legal awareness and information flow about income generation opportunities.

Vocational Training and Income Generation Programmes:

SFUW’s main action area is vocational training & income generation programmes where the activities are being carried out as per the strategy formulated where first step is to make aware target group about scope & opportunities in respective trade areas, govt. schemes and programmes, skill identification and then organization of training programmes.

Apart from the unemployment problems today youth is facing socio logical problems especially rural area as they are treated as neglected & unwanted. This is due to the fact that as a result of unemployment they are not only looked down upon by the society but also they are looked down by their family members. This is more common on in the rural areas as there is a severe lack of employment opportunity. Thus there is a urgent need for taping the huge potential of valuable human recourses by enhancing their skill level to create career opportunity as well as to felt them that they are part of the society & their contribution is necessary towards a healthier society.

SFUW prioritize to become youth & women self employed, it not only creates employment opportunity for women but it also prevents urban and seasonal migrant.
