With Focus on Marginalised People
We Are Dedicated to sustainable community development
Over 41 years of commitment to community development
Apeksha Homoeo Society (AHS) is a registered as voluntary organization working throughout Maharashtra especially in Vidarbha region on human rights, livelihoods and community development for over 40 years.
In the late 1970s, Dr. Madhukar Gumble formed and promoted a group of Homoeopath Doctors for community health interventions in 9 villages of Teosa 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.
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).
Realizing that only community health initiatives are not enough to address and change the major points in problems of the community, a 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.
For larger advocacy, AHS has linked a network of 25 NGOs in Vidarbha region to form “Child Rights Alliance”. Apeksha has also developed a network called Kisan Mitra to work on issues of Agrarian Crises & Farmers Suicides in Maharashtra & Madhya Pradesh States
