The largest congregation of humanity on earth, ‘Kumbh Mela’ has just concluded in Prayagraj in March this year. Now Ekal Abhiyan is organizing another - the ‘Parivartan Kumbh’ on 17,18 & 19th November 2019 in Lucknow to deliberate on the social, economic and cultural impact, it could muster in the lives of deprived tribal and rural communities over three decades

The Movement was initially meant to provide basic education in tribal and rural areas, where either there were no schools or even if some existed, its objective was to create awareness about our rich cultural heritage by non formal education. Over the years, Ekal has diversified its functioning towards holistic development of villages by inducing various programs of health & hygiene, organic farming, skill development, empowerment and awareness.

The objective of Parivartan Kumbh is to assess the changes, Ekal could bring in for the upliftment of tribal/rural society. The specific areas of assessment are:

  • Create interest among children and parents for studies reducing the rates of illiteracy and dropout
  • Inculcate good civic habits in children
  • Induce pride for the Nation and respect for cultural and social values
  • Generate a sense of confidence in tribal communities
  • Help in empowerment of women
  • Create awareness about health & hygiene, sanitation, malnutrition & anemia control
  • Create awareness about organic farming and nutritional gardening
  • Support for economic development and help in adding to earning and thereby reducing the urban migration
  • Help in de-addiction
  • Help in preservation of rich cultural heritage of India and social harmony.

Some of the beneficiaries in many categories and the change agent volunteers would be available in the event for personal experience sharing and discussions.

Approx. 5,000 delegates are expected to attend this event, including little above 100 from abroad. The participants would be the selected volunteers from all the three categories, the Sewa Vraties, from cities (Nagar Sangthans) and from field operations teams (Gram Sangthans). The selection criteria relate to the performance in terms of delivery of objectives for the respective categories.

Besides assessment of past achievements, the way forward is to be deliberated in the Kumbh. It is also to be discussed on how to make our efforts more impactful and enhance the role of younger generation and women power in the decision-making process at all levels.
