Evidence of success :

It seeks to sensitise the participants on the ‘woman question’ and raise consciousness
among them to address gender issues in their- everyday lives, academic pursuit and career plans.
It intends to engage participants in the following:
• Understanding critically the basic concepts in Women’s Studies
• Mapping historically the women’s movements in India
• Analysing major issues in the fields of development and culture from gender perspective
Problems encountered and Resources required
• Challenges faced by women and third gender should make us reflect on the injustices inflicted upon them as a consequence of gender discrimination.
• Since gender justice is not only desirable but mandatory everywhere, Gender Studies as a discourse needs to be understood by scholars from different streams of knowledge.
• Emerging issues in gender studies need to be discussed among scholars in order to develop a pedagogical and epistemological perspective which is free from all sorts of gender bias.
• To comprehend the issues and challenges faced by women,in a holistic manner through deliberations, research work, theory building and information dissemination.

• To create health awareness among the girls students to increase the physical strength, make them more confident and help them to be regular in daily attendance.
• Most of the girls are from rural area. The family backgroundof the students is economically and socially weak.
• There is tendency of ignorance about health issues in them and also in their parents which lead them towards bad impact on their health and ultimately to the health of society.
• The health of these girl students can be a major problem in their involvement of higher education

Context :
To create health awareness among girl students. The girls and their parents from our society are not conscious about health of girl students and have wrong ideas about their diet. Wrong diet ultimately leads to low HB level in them.
The Practice : Health Check up program organized by collaboration with Government Ayurvedic College. Check up of HB, weight, height etc. The problems were discussed by experts.

Evidence of success:
The success issue of this practice involves.

• Increase in health awareness among girls.

• Increase in physical strength of girl students

• Increase in total attendance of girl students during college timing

• Increase in confidence level of girl students.
• Healthy relation is established among girl student, their parent and women staff members.
Problems encountered and Resources required
• Tendency of girls and their parents to ignore health problems. This may be due to lack of health awareness and their economical background. Even in urban area most of the parents are unaware about Rubella vaccination.

• Availability of Doctors and hospital facilities for application of the scheme.

• Low response by ladies in rural area about participation in survey

• Financial supports.

1) The PH of soil is an important factor in determining which plants grow because it controls which nutrients are available for the plant to use.
2) It provides information about on the potency of toxic substances present in the soil.
3) It is indicative of status of microbial communities and net effect on the neutralization of organic residue.
4) For managing soil for selected agricultural crops.

1) Low nutrient levels in soil are a recognized limitation to crop production. Yet, farmers in certain agro-ecoregions either do not apply fertilizers, apply inadequate amounts, or apply the wrong fertilizers due to a mismatch with the nutrient needs of their soil.

2) In many cases, lack of availability of wet chemistry capabilities contribute to farmers in less developed regions not routinely conducting soil tests prior to fertilizer application.
3)Novel technologies and commercial products have become available, providing on-farm, timely, and relatively inexpensive soil and plant the functioning mechanisms of most of the products were found to be based on calorimetry that is PH meter. , spectroscopy etc.
4) we reflected upon the effectiveness of the products in generating relevant information to guide rationale fertilizer recommendations, and in that context discussed the concept of balanced fertilizer regimes that consider soil levels of different nutrients.
5) Soil factors that determine nutrient bioavailability and actual uptake by crops; and complex farming systems that may undermine the precision and efficiency of fertilizer application

The Practice:
Soil Analysis by using PH meter and different lab techniques. Project run by Chemistry Department Evidence of success :Consequently, soil testing provides a farm management tool with a potential benefit to the farmer of increased yields, reduced operating costs and superior environmental risk management. Additional benefits include; improved crop maturity and quality, higher tolerance to disease and pest damage, and increased growth.

Problem encountered and Resources required :
1)No Topsoil /Low Organic Matter,Heavy (clay) soil / Compaction / Poor Drainage.
3)Erosion/Slopes, Rocks, Buried debris, Obstructions.

Goal :

To assess the level of awareness and preparedness to fight against COVID-19 among the healthcare workers (HCWs) and other residents of the India.
The Context:
COVID-19 Awareness Among Healthcare Students and Professionals in Maharashtra and other states in India: A Questionnaire-Based Survey. The rapid and extensive spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has
become a major cause of concern for the healthcare profession . The aim of this study is to assess the awareness of COVID-19 disease and related infection control practices among healthcare professionals and students in the Maharashtra State.

The Practice :
total 399 responders from the Maharashtra and other states completed a questionnaire-based on the awareness, knowledge, and infection control practices related to COVID-19 infection in the healthcare setting.

Evidence of success:
As the global threat of COVID-19 continues to emerge, it is critical to improve the awareness and preparedness of the targeted community members, especially the less educated ones. Educational interventions are urgently needed to reach the targeted residents beyond borders and further measures are warranted. The outcome of this study highlighted a growing need for the adoption of innovative local strategies to improve awareness in general population related to COVID-19 and its preventative practices in order to meet its elimination goals.

Problem encountered and Resources required :
This survey was conducted at a Non teaching and teaching institute in Maharashtra and other states in India. The survey was prepared in the form of an online form and was sent to potential responders who included students and staff at various institutions in the state of Maharashtra, India. The period of the survey was April 2020 to May 2020 and a total of 399 responders completed the survey. The self-administered questionnaire consisting of socio-demographic questions and 50 questions based on knowledge and infection control practices related to COVID-19 disease in the healthcare setting were adapted from the current interim guidance. The questionnaire also included questions related to hand hygiene techniques based on the “five moments of hand hygiene” described by the WHO, which were used to test participants’ knowledge in optimal hygiene practices.
Notes (Optional) : India braces for the COVID-19 pandemic; healthcare workers on the frontlines are particularly vulnerable to this infection. The virus that causes COVID -19 was initially called as 2019-nCoV and was then termed as syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV). It is a new strain discovered in 2019 which was not found previously in humans. Previously, the severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (MERS-CoV) have been known to affect humans. Outbreaks of respiratory disease caused by these viruses seem to have originated in animals before moving into other hosts like humans. MERS-CoV was found to be transmitted from Arabian camels to humans, whereas SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans. SARS-CoV-2 seems to have originated from bats and first reports of cases were from Wuhan, Hubei Province in China, suggesting an animal-to-person spread from a live animal market. The virus then spread outside Hubei and subsequently, to the rest of the world via human transmission. Several countries have now reported community spread. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus disease as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. With this mode of transmission, healthcare workers are among the highest risk of being infected. The highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus is an additional hazard for the healthcare system apart from the burden of extended work hours, physical and psychological stress, burnout, and fatigue. The objective of this study is to assess the awareness of COVID-19 disease and its related infection control practices among healthcare professionals in the Indian healthcare scenario. This was a questionnaire-based survey adapted from current interim guidelines and information for healthcare personnel provided by the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and WHO.

  • Goal:
    1)Hand sanitizers were developed for use after washing hands or for those times when soap and water are not available.
    2)They are gels that contain alcohol in order to kill the germs present on the skin. The alcohol works immediately and effectively in order to kill bacteria and most viruses.
    3)The economic and social disruption caused by the pandemic is devastating. During this situation Hand Sanitizer were distributed to Society.
    The Practice:
    1)1500 L of Alcohol based Hand Sanitizer prepared in lab with a batch capacity of 100 L per day.
    2) The Hand Sanitizer, as per WHO guidelines, which is as follows: Alcohol70%, Glycerol 1.45%, Hydrogen peroxide 3.00% (this assay is printed in the label also, along with the Directions for use tips.)
    3)Sanitizer sprayer of 100 ml (container) was given to all staff and among the Society.
    Context :
    The world is facing a medical crisis amid the CoViD-19 pandemic and the role of adequate hygiene and hand sanitizer’s is inevitable in controlling the spread of infection in public places and healthcare institutions. There has been a great surge in demand for hand sanitisation products leading to shortages in their supply. A consequent increase of standard products in the market has raised safety concerns.
  • Evidence of success:
    1) The run on hand sanitizer also came as health officials across the country have remained adamant that the best way for people to combat the spread of potentially dangerous germs is simply through diligent hand washing with soap and water.
    2) The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention do note that, when it comes to preventing the spread of coronavirus, “if soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.”
  • 3) With the announcement of the COVID-19 pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), experts around the world recommend frequent hand washing, social distancing, and respiratory hygiene to reduce the virus’ spread. 4) Hand washing is one of the most effective ways a person can protect themselves and their family from getting sick. However, if soap and water are not immediately available, people can also use hand sanitizers.
    Problem encountered and Resources required:
    1) The use of ingredients that have no effect on the pathogens that cause COVID-19
    2) Using hand sanitizer is a useful alternative to soap and water, but it should not be a substitute for proper hand washing. According to the CDC proper hand washing techniques can reduce the number of all types of germs, pesticides, and metals on the hands. 3) Researchers have demonstrated that solutions containing 60% ethanol and 70% Isopropanol which are the active ingredients in CDC-recommended alcohol-based hand sanitizers, inactivate viruses However, these approved hand sanitizers still do not kill all pathogens, including Cryptosporidium, norovirus, Clostridium difficile.
