Our Policy and Guiding Principles of our Organisation.
We adopt a policy of great flexibility in all aspects of admission, help, training and rehabilitation of individuals in need.
1. Admission into the home for the needy.
Only the socio-economic need of the candidates is the criterion for admission. No limits are set either for the time of admission or for the candidates’ age and qualification. No recommendations are sought.
2. Women and children.
Deserted wives and widows are admitted into the hostels along with their children if any. The children are educated while the mothers also receive a training to acquire a skill for earning.
3. Social Equality and Justice.
Services are open to the paying and the non-paying alike. The quality of service is the same to all. Untouchability, castecism, communal and language differences are forgotten ideas in the atmosphere of the Stree Seva Mandir.
4. Training and occupational mobility.
On the job trainees and school dropouts are given facilities to improve their academic skills as well as their vocational skills through non-formal courses and very often a trainee acquires more than one skill ensuring occupational mobility at a later date when she leaves the institution.
5. Stop gap employment.
No dependent is asked to leave the institution except when she desires to leave or when she gets an outside better renumerative job. The inmates are placed in a stop gap employment till then with a subsidised wage and a small bank account.
6. Placement in good jobs.
Many of the old dependants are well trained and now well placed in good jobs. Some are even self employed.
7. Families re-united.
Women in distress along with their children are given shelter when required. Upon the family becoming self sufficient, a family reunion is planned with counselling. We continue to help the children for education and settlement.
Marriages are planned for total dependants and great care is taken to settle these girls in life, thus providing social and economic rehabilitation.
