Vardi would have to go to the city 35 kms away from her village to get her children immunized. And sometimes it did not take place due to no transporation or rains or so. The Government run Immunization camps are irregular in her village. It is now eaiser for her to get her children immunized in Seva Mandir run immunization camps.
The story of NFE of village Jamun is very interesting. As the Government School is far and the teachers there were not teaching, many enrolled students had dropped out. How the village leaders and youth have looked for other alternative options for these children's schooling and encouraged the parents to send back to them to the NFE run by Seva Mandir.

The story of Non Formal Education Center (NFE) of village Ushan in an interesting one. The Village has undergone a rigorous struggle with the teacher at Government School in village Ushan. Nither the teacher shows up in the school regularly nor does she teach. The villagers confronted her but she accused the parents for not sending their children to the School. The problem continues but to cater to the needs of children being out-of-school an NFE was set up in January 2007.
