ASHAs like Rina Devi in Bokaro, Jharkhand, Inspire Men to Support Family Planning

Rina was recently recognized as one of the best community health workers for mobilizing four non-surgical vasectomy (NSV) clients during the country’s NSV fortnight in November 2022.

She learned these techniques from her auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM) mentor and the TCI team in India. Rina said both have always supported her, be it for one-on-one counseling, or conducting interventions where men gather, such as ‘Chauraha’ meetings (meaning ‘crossroads’ in English) for men seeking odd jobs as laborers.

Rina also owes her success to three simple ground rules:

• During any visit to the community, talk about the importance of family planning and all family planning methods
• Talk to couples together and not just the women
• Identify couples in need of family planning by keeping her ASHA diary up to date.

Each day, our team works tirelessly to add colors in the struggling lives of millions in need. With a steady resolve to bring quality life on the doorsteps of those who cannot afford it, we work on ground, sowing the seeds of opportunities in the homes of millions and ensuring that they grow and sustain into plants of peace and happiness and success stories.

You are the reason we continue and will continue to make a visible difference in the lives of many. Because you make us believe that helping hands are and always will be better than praying lips.
