Genesis and Evolution of the Organisation
In the late 1970s, Dr. Madhukar Gumble formed and promoted a group of Homoeopath Doctors. The group started experimenting for establishing socialism through community health interventions in 9 villages of Tiosa block in Amravati district.
Community health interventions through administering homoeopath and building network of well-trained village health volunteers were the key innovation in their work.
The group felt need of formal organisation set up to step up the pioneering community health initiatives. Consequently the group got formally registered as ‘Apeksha Homoeo Society’ (AHS) in 1980.
The name of the society is derived from ‘Apeksha’ (consideration) of ‘Homoeo’ (likeness in evocation of pity or sadness).
Within ten years of vigorous work, AHS learned that only community health initiatives are not enough to address and change the major points in problems of the community. Hence multi-dimensional development approach was adopted from 1990 by taking initiatives in righteous implementation of government schemes, livelihood enhancement and income generation, sanitation and safe drinking water, education, etc.
Further AHS recognized children as primary stakeholder in prevention of sorrow in the community and securing bright future for the community. Hence AHS has centralized all its programs and activities for establishing child rights.
