May all sentient beings be at peace,
may no one suffer from illness,
May all see what is auspicious, may no one suffer.
Om peace, peace, peace.
Vichar Kranti Campaign
A new initiative has been undertaken during the Corona lockdown period termed VICHAR KRANTI. The present organisation structure of Gram Sangthan and Nagar Sangthan has been converged to harness the respective capabilities and commitment, till Ekal resumes its usual activities and for a period beyond that. The newly converged structure seeks to provide support to rural communities, in a war like crisis, in varied manner, such as:
Mobilising general masses from villages called Gram Sainiks
Spreading awareness about measures to keep safe from the virus, mostly sourced from Government advisories like Health and Ayush, downloading of Arogya Setu, wall writing etc.
Guarding villages against new entrants from outside and returning from cities without test and support administration in their quantization coordination of community with various agencies of Administration
Awareness campaigns by Ekal Yuva
- Neha Mittal, Ekal Yuva
Ekal Yuva, the youth wing of Ekal Abhiyan has its primary objective in creating awareness. In the current scenario, with the world facing the Pandemic, Covid-19 and all of us under Lockdown, these are a few campaigns we did:
1. Created easy to understand, graphic posters in Hindi providing instructions for our village folk on how to stay safe from the novel Corona virus. This was circulated to all our Ekal Villages.
2. During the first phase of Lockdown, we circulated motivational quotes on social media along with safety measures to be followed.
3. During the second phase of Lockdown, Ekal Yuva shared videos on learning new skills made by members on topics such as, mask making, cooking, yoga and fitness, using technology to work from home, soft skills, making disinfectants etc.
4. We also made a team to carry on work towards data collection and analysis from various sources on topics provided by Shri Shyamji regarding strategies of prevention and treatment used by various countries.
5. For the benefit of our own members and to maintain the connect amongst each other, we had a few video conferencing sessions on subjects like Finance and economy post-covid, relationships during Lockdown and moral story telling for children.
Just like our seniors, we do hope to mobilise women in cities to start making masks from home.
