As a densely populated country, India where a large number of people are illiterate and without any access to the basic education and primary health facility. Especially the situation is more complex in Rural Indian villages comparing to the urban areas in India. The most important to create awareness about health to the poor villagers those who are under poverty line. In that poor socio economic conditions the village people do not have proper support to maintain their minimum standard of living.
There are deficiencies of the supply of drinking water, proper sanitation and electricity. The village people somehow manage little water from distinct places and hardly think of having basic needs like food, cloths, shelters as well as minimum education.
Heritage Foundation, having some motto, started journey to fulfil the basic needs of the rural people through various awareness programmes.
