So, IVDP has created a ‘Microcredit plus’ scheme known as ‘Life Security and Solidarity fund’ to its members. Under the scheme a new member has to pay Rs.100/- as an annual premium to the federation, and in the subsequent years, the annual premium will be lesser than Rs.100/-

Though, English language is also equally given importance, and the students are helped to speak and write English. Besides, the students are taught physical education, Yoga, and meditation.
Health is Wealth
The health of a nation is best judged by the health status of its people. The Social, health, and nutritional status of women reflect the real index of development of any nation or society.
Since, IVDP works among poor women; it too focuses on their health status. So it has advocated, ‘Three Health Approaches’ to promote the Health status of SHG members and they are, the promotion of safe drinking water, Toilet and Sanitary Napkins.
Toilet for all
Our aim is to help every SHG family to have aToilet for their use. So we give ‘Toilet Loan of Rs.10,000/- each. So far 17,000 Toilets were constructed by our members. The children and women suffering from warm infestation and Anemia were reduced considerably.
Safe Drinking water
It is obvious to mention here that 60% of the disease that children and women encounter are due to consumption of ‘Contaminated Water’. The well water, pipe water and Bore well water are impure in nature, hence the SHG members have been advised to use Pureit device to get pure water. So far 58,000 Pureit devices are used by our members’ family and the pureit devices are given at 12% discount by HUL.
Sanitary Napkins
Still, in rural areas the members are reluctant to use Sanitary Napkins, due to shyness. Because of that the women suffer from Uterus Cancer, RTI and UTI, so IVDP has intervened on this matter and helps the members to get ‘Bella Napkins’ at 25% Discount. Till Now, 30,500 Napkin Boxes were used by our members with a cost of Rs.2.1 crore. It is important to mention here that the members suffering from uterus cancer and urinary tract infections reduced remarkably.
Micro Enterprises of SHG members
The essence of micro – enterprises is to provide employment and income generation opportunity to poor people through small enterprises. IVDP provides poor people with access to capital and training to start and expand their small business. This practice has moved very effective in helping the poor to come out of poverty. It also gives them a sense of self respect. So, this micro enterprise has improved the Life standard of our SHG families and the total income of the family rose considerably. At every stage we stress and urge the members to pursue self employments and some of the income generation activity members do, are: Brick making, toffee making, Rekxin Bag making, snacks preparation, candle and toys making etc..
We are pleased to announce that in 2009-2010, 1453 members got Rs.26 crore as dividend, for the savings that they had in their respective groups. Since the amount reached their hand in time, the members celebrated the New year and Pongal festival in a grand and colorful manner. As on Dec’09 5458 SHGs shared a total Dividend of Rs. 72 crores.

IVDP has been sincerely working among the poor to bring cheers in their families, through Economic, Health and Education activities.
