CHIRAGH Society at a Glance Background:- It is a matter of 1995 era when I (ZAFAR ALAM) was quite young and got an opportunity by Pulse Polio campaign to serve the marginalized community of Firozabad Slums. During my tenure I had observed that there are no basic facilities of schools, roads, health centers, drains and sewers. There was a huge problem of health issues like diarrhea, tuberculosis, malnutrition, polio etc. due to waterlogged and piles of garbage were gathered place to place in slums, while people were also facing the shortage of drinking water. I was so depressed to see the living condition of this uneducated society and their malnourished children, anemic girls and the innocence women were forced to living their lives between four walls of home under purdah system. I started getting worried for this under privileged Society how to help them? Or what we can do so that this underprivileged community link with mainstream. How can we created awareness in this community to change their living standard? Then we decided to work for the socially and economically upliftment for this vulnerable community through Nonprofit Organization, But we have also observed that these innocent people have kept in the trap of moneylender, “SATTA MAFIA” and the local suppliers of SMACK & CHARAS. The hand of these MAFIA’S was very long and no one from the community was ready to speak raise their voice against and the fear of these MAFIA’s was prevalent in the uneducated society. When I decided to stand up against them because of this my friends also left me. My father Late Mr. Mohammad Saleem and some other family members encouraged to me to go ahead because these innocence peoples were in darkness and we made our aim to change this darkness into light through Sustainable Solutions. My loving younger brother Late Farhat Alam proposed us the name for our Not-for-Profit Organization which will be called by the name of “CHIRAGH SOCIETY” because it reflect to the light. We didn’t have any expertise or experienced, but we have zeal, passion and motivation to bring social change.

The Pandemic Covid-19
Child Rights Awareness Programme At Railway Station
Covid-19 Pandemic has impacted the entire world severely. It has affected not only health and survival but also socio-economic development of the world as a whole. In short run, while it has caused tremendous casualties measures to restrict its spread, like lockdown and other mobility restrictions, have resulted in creating food security issues as supply chain hampered. Supply of other essentials has also been affected in spite of the efforts of government to minimize this. Hunger and malnutrition, in this situation, are likely to increase. Incidence of other diseases too can increase because people are hesitating in approaching health services for other issues and the health machinery itself is heavily occupied with its treatment and vaccination.
Loss of livelihood has been the most devastating outcome of the pandemic. Lockdown resulted in closure of several economic activities and resulted in increasing unemployment, poverty and hunger
