Welcome to Salaam Mumbai
Salaam Bombay Foundation started its rural outreach programme in 2007 under the Salaam Mumbai Foundation banner. It began in collaboration with Ambuja Cement Foundation in Chandrapur district (Maharashtra).Salaam Mumbai Foundation focuses on “training the trainer.” Through this we reach out to “influencers” at the rural level,from schoolteachers,to aanganwadi workers,to public health workers,to local NGOs to the village sarpanch. They all form the first level of educators who take the message out to the various targeted groups. Tried and tested modules that have delivered results to the various Mumbai BMC and government aided schools have been implemented at the rural level, with adjustments made keeping in mind rural parameters. Constant follow-ups and add-on training modules specific to rural conditions further enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the programme.
Since its inception in 2007, the rural programme has reached across 5 states in India, including 30 districts in Maharashtra. The rural programme has reached out to 1866 trainers, 60,000 teachers, 620 NGOs, 1,340 MPHWs, 11,364 police, 8538 D.Ed, B.Ed students and 1416 university students. The rural outreach has impacted more than 48,000 schools across Maharashtra.
