Centre of HOPE - Delhi III CKA

HOPE worldwide is implementing Chotton Ki Asha (CKA) Maternal and Child Survival program supported by USAID in the Sonia Vihar and Rajiv Nagar area covering a vulnerable population of over 200,000 living in these slums with a dire need of health care. The Chotton Ki Asha program is implemented in partnership with Municipal Corporation of Delhi and DHS, as well as University College of Medical Sciences (GTB Hospital). This program aims at imparting health education for the public, and strengthening of the existing health system to change the ground realities of health care for these people.

The health survey of Sonia Vihar and Rajiv Nagar indicate lack of demand and access in wake of lack of awareness as well as the overburdened healthcare delivery system challenged by near 50% decadanal growth in the population. The urban poor, living in the slums, are the worst sufferers. The goal of the CKA program is to decrease the incidence and degree of diarrhea, pneumonia, and preventable diseases among children living in urban slums and to improve the health of mothers and their newborn infants.

Mark Templer, CEO of HOPE worldwide, has said, "It is a wonderful thing to see the way 'Chotton Ki Asha' has empowered local women at the grassroots level. It brings tears to my eyes every time I go to their homes and see how zealously they share about health and how they have helped each other. This program will save thousands of lives and also serve as a useful model of how to deal with urban health challenges in India. USAID, the MCD and Delhi Government have worked together with us in a wonderful way to make this program a great success. Program Director Rachna Sujay is doing a wonderful job."

This is a USAID flagship urban health program and the lessons learned from this program will be worth looking at for scale up through the Delhi Government and National Rural Health Mission.

Apart from the Maternal and Child Survival program, with support from Pakhar foundation, a Non-formal School has also been started at Sonia Vihar for children who have discontinued their education due to various reasons; a Nursery for children between 3 to 4 age group and a Kindergarten. Vocational Training courses in sewing, beauty culture, and computers for the youth have also been started.
