Feedback session on Comprehensive Sexuality Education Program
Guidance to children of adolescent age group on subjects like physical, psychological and emotional changes at puberty, good touch and bad touch, gender equality, nutrition, personal hygiene etc. is a need of the day. Precision Foundation with the help of Family Planning Association of India, Solapur Branch, conducted Comprehensive Sexuality Education program covering these ‘less talked about’ subjects and beyond in 21 schools for 4411 children of age group 10 to 19 and 328 Teachers.
This was conducted over a period of six months from September 2018 to February 2019. A feedback session organised for the teachers, students and their parents on 24 March 2019 was very well attended and we received very positive reactions from all the participants. Advocate P B Londhe-Patil addressed the participants on the POCSO Act 2012 (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) and guided them on safeguarding interest of the child at every stage of the judicial process.

Dialysis Unit for Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Sarvopachar Rugnalaya (General Hospital), Solapur
Precision Foundation recently got the infrastructure ready for starting a ‘Hemodialysis Unit’ at the General Hospital, Solapur and also donated 2 Hemodialysis machines with 3 years of comprehensive maintenance and consumables required for 100 dialysis patients.
The ‘A’ block at the General Hospital Solapur houses the department of Medicine. The infrastructure work for hemodialysis unit included repairs of a ward along with its toilet block where the general ward was shifted followed by repair work, flooring, false ceiling, complete electrification, construction of toilet block, fabricated shed for RO plant, plumbing lines, partitions for isolation rooms and painting of the general ward that has been converted into hemodialysis unit. The unit is now ready for 10 hemodialysis machines.
The Alumni Association of Dr. Vaishampayan Memorial Government Medical College (VMGMC) also contributed one hemodialysis machine, patient beds and RO plant.
The unit was handed over to VMGMC and Dept. of Medicine, General Hospital Solapur at the hands of Deputy DMER Maharashtra State, Padmashri Dr. Tatyarao Lahane and in the presence of Dr. Sunil Ghate, Dean Dr. VMGMC on 27th July 2018 and became functional with 3 hemodialysis machines.
This unit would be a lifesaving facility for cases of Acute Renal Injury admitted at the General hospital and also would help patients of Chronic Renal Failure under maintenance hemodialysis.
In the year 2018-19, 10 more schools have received the e-learning kits, taking the number of digital schools to 110. In this third phase of the project, the kit comprised of a 55 inch LED TV which gets converted into a touch screen. The TV is mounted on a stand which allows height adjustment and can also be taken from classroom to classroom. The schools have also been provided with syllabus for 1st to 10th grade in the digital format and a number of Apps to make learning more interactive and enjoyable for the students.
All the e-learning kits are run on alternate source of energy as solar power generating system is installed at every school covered under this project. A training session was conducted for about 70 teachers from these newly added schools by Mr. Sandip Gund, a well-known techno-savvy digital teacher.
