Training under Aarambh initiative inaugurated

Training under Aarambh initiative inaugurated

On 25th October 2021, a division-level training for Master Trainers from 11 districts of Nagpur and Amravati division under 'Aarambh' initiative was inaugurated at Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS), Sevagram. Hon’ble Mrs Rubal Agarwal, Commissioner ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) Maharashtra was the chief guest of the function. Mrs Prerna Deshbhratar (Collector, Wardha) and Dr Sachin Ombase (CEO, Wardha) were the guests of honor. Shri PL Tapadiya (Vice President, Kasturba Health Society), Dr BS Garg (Secretary, Kasturba Health Society), Dr NM Gangane (Dean, MGIMS), Dr SP Kalantri (Medical Superintendent, Kasturba Hospital), Dr Subodh Gupta (Head of Department, Community Medicine) and Mrs Sharmila Mukherjee (Consultant, UNICEF) shared the dais with other dignitaries.

Aarambh – an initiative to build the capacity of parents and other caregivers by MGIMS – emphasizes on Early Childhood Development and aims to provide parenting information to the underprivileged community. This initiative will be implemented throughout Maharashtra by the Department of Women and Child Development through ICDS scheme.

UNICEF is providing support to MGIMS, Sevagram to sustain a state-level resource team as well as 30 key trainers at Sevagram to facilitate this scale-up. These state resource team and key trainers will train 250 master trainers; the master trainers will train 3000 ICDS supervisors who in turn will train approximately 112,000 Anganwadi workers in the state and expand the reach of the program to each household in Maharashtra.

“With 250 master trainers, 3000 supervisors and 1.1 lakhs Aaganwadi workers, I can foresee a bright future for all children in Maharashtra,” said Mrs Agrawal addressing the master trainers who have come to participate in the training. She commended on the efforts of the entire team and assured her support for the successful implementation of this project. “I shall be happy to witness Aarambh rolling out throughout our country in the next two years”, she added.

“Through Aarambh and its profound training programmes, we have been successful in reaching out to our communities and thereby helping in shaping the early childhood development of the children in our district”, said Mrs Deshbhratar. “This initiative not only focuses on health and nutrition but also on key aspects of development like emotional, intellectual and social wellbeing of children”, she added.

“MGIMS always stands as a testament for community empowerment and social service”, said Shri Tapadiya. “This Aarambh initiative is a beautiful symbiosis of public-private partnership of MGIMS, UNICEF, Govt of Maharashtra and district administrations.

Master trainers from 11 districts of Maharashtra have assembled in a five days training programme at MGIMS. “The foundation for Aarambh was laid in 2010 with a project supported by World Health Organization and INTERVIDA. This project initiated at MGIMS in 2010 to empower parents and family members with just a handful of ASHA and Angawadi workers has today become a pan Maharashtra model for early childhood development”, said Dr Gangane. Mrs Mukherjee invited all district level ICDS officials to ensure quality training programmes so that the initiative can be implemented smoothly across the state.

 “Through Aarambh, we aim to bring holistic development of children in their formative years”, informed Dr Subodh Gupta who is also the face behind the idea of this project. Our team of passionate faculty members, project team, ASHA and Aaganwadi workers along with their supervisors have worked hard for the last two decades. It is a moment of pride to see this scale-up throughout Maharashtra. We feel an idea as powerful as this will definitely get scaled-up beyond Maharashtra.”, Dr Subodh informed. 

Dr Abhishek Raut (Professor of Community Medicine) proposed the vote of thanks and Dr Bahulekar (Social Scientist, Community Medicine) compered the programme.

MGIMS stands as a role model for Sri Sathya Sai Baba Medical College

MGIMS stands as a role model for Sri Sathya Sai Baba Medical College

On Sep, 14 Sep 2021, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Swami – an instrumentation of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and the face behind Baba’s spirituality and service mission – visited Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Sevagram Wardha. The reason behind the gracious visit was to understand MGIMS’s teachings and best practices and emulate the same in their upcoming medical college in Karnataka.

Sri Madhusudhan Swami called this occasion a ‘Sangam’ of MGIMS and Sathya Sai Baba Trust where the two entities have similar dream of rendering service to mankind. “We have come here to learn from you, take your advice and emulate your community centric teaching. It is a lifetime opportunity to learn from a hollowed institution like MGIMS”, he expressed. He also emphasized on the need of rural India education and recalled Mahatma Gandhi in Sathya Sai Baba’s words ‘Gram Seva is Ram Seva’. Swamiji also said that his organization shall continue to fund scholarships for needy MGIMS students to peruse their medical education. “You are training and teaching inspired young minds to serve on the ideals taught by Mahatma Gandhi ji, which is the greatest service being rendered by your team”, he added.

Along with the revered Swami were Mr BN Narsimha Murthy (Chancellor, Sri Satya Sai Baba University of Human Excellence) and Mr C Sreenivas (Chairman, Sri Sathya Sai Health and Education Trust), volunteers and several student leaders. Shri Dhirubhai Mehta (President, Kasturba Health Society), Shri PL Tapadiya (Vice-President, Kasturba Health Society), Dr BS Garg (Secretary, Kasturba Health Society), Dr NM Gangane (Dean, MGIMS), Dr SP Kalantri (Medical Superintendent, Kasturba Hospital), Dr P Narang (Emeritus Professor of Microbiology) along with faculty and staff were present at the occasion..

The occasion was marked by offering prayer and seeking the gracious blessings from Sri Satya Sai Baba at the institute’s Emergency Medicine Centre. 20 years ago, this centre had received funding from the Satya Sai Baba Trust. Shri Dhirubhai welcomed the guests with traditional soot-gundi and fondly reminisced one of his interactions with Satya Sai Baba some three decades ago. “We are extremely happy that the trust chose MGIMS as a model for inspiring medical education”, he added. “You are walking in the footsteps of Baba and we are fortunate to have your blessings today”, expressed Dr (Mrs) P Narang.

Dr NM Gangane shared the ethos of MGIMS and gave a glimpse of MGIMS’s commitment to excellence in education, quality research and community engagement. “MGIMS has a distinction of being a medical college where community based medical education makes the framework of the students’ learning process”, he added. Dr SP Kalantri introduced various unique features of the hospital like low-cost drug initiative, paperless Hospital Information System, Health assurance schemes, healthcare at Melghat along with sharing the hospital’s commitment to accessible, affordable and appropriate healthcare for rural and poor people. “Kasturba Hospital is a testament of love, care and service for rural communities and we are happy to reach out to that last common man”, Dr Kalantri emphasised.

The dignitaries also visited institute library, which they found inspiring, open, inviting and motivating . They spent an hour at Gandhi Ashram, a visit that helped them learn how Gandhiji and his associated lived, planned freedom and worked relentlessly for the nation.
