Area of Intervention: -
Presently, SPECTRA organization has been working in Jalore ,Banswara , Jodhpur and Alwar district namely Ahore , Sajjangarh , Umarain, Kishangarh bass, Tijara, Ramgarh and Rajgarh as well as 95 villages of Nuh Mewat of Haryana , Khargaon in MP and three blocks of Jodhopur namely Osian, Balesar and Bhopalgarh in Rajasthan. We have working in 300 villages in very remote area of blocks.
These are the most backward blocks in the district on Female literacy indicators. Agriculture and animal husbandry are the main occupations for livelihood, as it happens to be a totally non-urbanized and non-industrialized area. It has a high proportion scheduled castes, Tribal and Minority (Meo Muslims), the most backward communities in the caste hierarchy. High proportion of disadvantaged communities in the total population and low indicators of development (Sex ratio and literacy rates), all indicate that this is a backward poor rural area.
Major programmes and projects run by SPECTRA
SPECTRA works in Rajasthan highest-need, hardest-to-reach areas
Collaborating locally to bring health within reach:-
SPECTRA ORG. began working in Rajasthan in 1996 to address some of the country’s crucial health problems. Over more than three decades, our program in the region has grown to become one of our largest. We work in some of the country’s highest-need and hardest-to-reach areas, collaborating with governments, communities, companies, researchers, and public health practitioners to find health solutions.
SPECTRA-ALWAR
Preventing disease through vaccines and immunizations:-
SPECTRA ORG. works in Rajasthan to help develop new vaccines and vaccine technologies and strengthen immunization services to reach even the most remote villages. We’re advancing new vaccines against malaria, meningitis, pneumococcal disease (the most common cause of severe pneumonia), and rotavirus (the most common cause of severe diarrhea) by collaborating with partners on vaccine development, formulation, manufacturing, and compliance with regulatory authorities.
We work closely with the Government of Rajasthan to strengthen health systems to introduce new vaccines and improve access to immunization services. SPECTRA ORG. is helping to increase immunization coverage for young children in the slums of the state of Rajasthan. Through our partnership with the Rajasthan government, we helped ensure that children state wide received vaccine against Japanese encephalitis, a debilitating disease that in Rajasthan strikes mainly poor, rural communities. We helped introduce hepatitis B vaccine in the routine immunization program. The vaccine is now available free of cost in most state immunization programs.
SPECTRA ORG. also facilitates research in Rajasthan on methods to protect vaccines from damage due to exposure to extreme temperatures during transport and storage. Because reuse of needles can increase the risk of spreading HIV, hepatitis B, and other infections, SPECTRA ORG. has supported manufacturers to mass-produce single-use syringes to make them available and affordable.
Improving health for mothers and children:-
Every year, thousands of children in Rajasthan die within a month of birth. Thousands more survive, but grow up weak or sickly. Often, these outcomes could be avoided with increased health education. Through SPECTRA ORG enhancing Rajasthan’s health system while helping families understand simple steps they can take to help their babies thrive.
Despite advances, women in Rajasthan continue to be threatened by two highly preventable causes of death: postpartum haemorrhage and cervical cancer. Rajasthan’s maternal mortality rate is 407 per
Access to safe water and healthy food:-
Millions of poor families in Rajasthan lack access to safe drinking water, a condition that poses a daily threat to their health. We conducted extensive testing with potential users to design a household water treatment and storage device for Rajasthann families. Now, we’re collaborating with manufacturers and distributors to provide a product that has the potential to make safe drinking water available and affordable.
Controlling tuberculosis:-
Rajasthan has the highest burden of tuberculosis (TB) in the world. With 1.8 million cases occurring annually and 333,000 deaths from TB, Rajasthan accounts for one-fifth of the world’s new TB cases and two-thirds of the cases in Southeast Asia. More than 70 percent of cases occur in the economically productive 15– to 54-year-old age group. Their deaths take a terrible toll on families and economies. SPECTRA ORG. supports the State government and across all districts by strengthening communication, laboratories, infection control, and surveillance of multidrug-resistant TB.

After formation of the group the members are linked to bank.
Agriculture Promotion
Training on Crop Management and SRI Technique: Despite 70 per cent of the population being engaged in agriculture and allied activities, declining food grains production and lack of food security remain the two biggest problems confronting our country. SPECTRA`s approach is to carry out crop productivity enhancement by means of helping the farmers to identify and analyse their crop production problems, and become aware about the opportunities for improving. The main focus under this intervention is on awareness generation and purposive transfer of skills. Initially our staff did assessment of existing cropping and traditional method used in the projected area and discussed them with SHG group
SPECTRA-ALWAR
The SRI programme started in Kishangarh Bass block of Alwar district. Till now we have reached over 1000 farmers across 30 villages. In the beginning the team was facing difficulties to convince the farmers about SRI adoption. Because SRI is a new concept in this area. The team tried to motivate the farmers by using strategies such as external exposures, trainings, regular village meetings, etc to adopt SRI in larger area.
Under the umbrella of SRI technique and crop management, SPECTRA organized 22 trainings of 100 groups which resulted in farmer women have been benefited with this technique. We also established 60 demonstration plot of SRI technique for wheat crop in the area.
Ajola Establishment: For fodder development, Ajola Bed is introduced in the field for cattle-feed. Ajola is green cattle-feed for the increscent of milk production in animal. Women farmers themselves established Ajola bed in their home or near to home.
Dairy Development: SPECTRA works with rural families in the promotion of dairy and animal rearing activities in the project areas of Kishangarh-Bas of Alwar district. In the projected area, rearing practices remain poor, veterinary services are non-existent, and market linkage is absent.

SWEEP “Strengthening Women Empowerment through Elected Process-Campaign Supported by THP (The Hunger Project)
Empowerment of women is essentially the process of upliftment of economic, social and political status of women, the traditionally underprivileged ones, in the society. It involves the building up of a society wherein in women can breathe without the fear of oppression, exploitation, apprehension, discrimination. The empowerment of women can be ensured through legislation for ensuring participation in political decision making.
Such an approach provides the women with a constitutional platform to stand up to men, to raise their voice on issues concerning women oppression, subjugation and related issues and thus in effect, providing them with an identity in an orthodox male dominated socio-political set up, in addition to providing a much needed forum to seek redressal of problems directly affecting them.

With increasing self-reliance, rural women are becoming more confident and independent; they have successfully improved the quality of life of rural women in many states and helped them to upgrade their skills. An indication of social change is the increasing number of income generating activities being controlled by women. Besides improving the economic standards of life of women, aim at spreading awareness on issues such as literacy, health, nutrition, family welfare, and legal rights through which they can get Empowerment. In order to accomplish this task, individual rural women should improve their awareness levels, communication skills; simple management techniques so that they can improve their confidence, articulate and effectively communicate with their social partners and economic stakeholders. This is possible only through a comprehensive training and the training agencies are expected to organize a tailor-made training module to suit individual group and should be able to monitor their effectiveness with a view to improve their focus and quality.

Autistic Minority International
1200 Geneva

Autistic Minority International is the first and only autism self-advocacy organization active at the global political level. The NGO, founded as a non-profit association under Swiss law in 2013 and headquartered in Geneva, aims to advance the interests of autistics worldwide at and through the United Nations, World Health Organization, human rights treaty bodies, and other international organizations.

We believe that autistic self-advocacy is about more than disability rights. Estimated at one percent of the world's population, or seventy million people, autistics deserve the same protection and rights the international community affords to ethnic, religious, and linguistic minorities as well as indigenous peoples. There is an autistic minority in every country on Earth. Only minority status will put an end to discrimination and marginalization and permit all of us to be open about our condition without fear of repercussions. Autism is a distinct culture and identity. The only one we know.

For that reason, we seek to network autism self-advocacy organizations worldwide and act as a focal point for capacity building and the exchange of best practice on how to engage governments at the national, regional, and local level. We promote and assist in the participation of national and local self-advocacy groups at UN conferences and in UN processes and mechanisms. Where no effective national self-advocacy organizations exist, we will establish such. We are open to collaboration with UN member states, the UN system, the wider NGO community, autism charities run by non-autistics, researchers particularly in the social sciences and international law, the private sector, and individuals with a view to shaping global priorities and lifting our concerns onto the UN's agenda.

Established in 1986, it provides comprehensive technical services to countries in the region across social and physical sciences to support sustainable solutions for risk reduction and climate resilience. ADPC supports countries and communities in Asia and the Pacific in building their DRR systems, institutional mechanisms and capacities to become resilient to numerous hazards, such as floods, landslides, earthquake, cyclones, droughts, etc.

Working across a broad range of specialist areas, ADPC develops and implements cross-sectoral projects/programs on the strategic themes of risk governance, urban resilience, climate resilience, health risk management, preparedness for response and resilient recovery. Our strategic themes are complemented and underpinned by the cross-cutting themes of gender and diversity, regional and transboundary cooperation as well as poverty and livelihoods. The ADPC Academy designs and delivers specialist capacity-building and training courses at all levels and also enhances the capabilities of national training centers on DRR.
