Community development program two major aspects namely:
Through this initiative Kutumb aims to fill the voids in the primary healthcare system in the community. It is one of the initial initiatives of the organisation and has aided more than a thousand beneficiaries till date.
Kutumb has two Community Health Centers - Kutumb Village and Kutumb Shelter House. The objective is to provide medical aid to the underprivileged communities residing in the nearby villages. It is a free-of-cost facility and is availed by thousands of people every year.
Kutumb organizes various health camps in collaboration with other NGOs, government organizations, private hospitals, and even private companies. They are conducted at multiple regions and venues across Varanasi. Mega health camps are also conducted once every few months with renowned hospitals. The main aim of the health camps is to target the under-privileged families who lack the financial means to seek medical attention. Basic check-up and diagnosis are done free of cost, while the medicines are also provided at a nominal rate.

Literacy is the most powerful tool for empowerment. The Community Education Project is a rather recent undertaking that focuses on imparting functional literacy to the people in the nearby community.
Under the initiative, elders from the neighbouring villages are updated with basic current affairs as well as elementary knowledge. Library facility is also open to all and everyone is encouraged to read the daily newspapers and magazines.

We recently collabarated with Indian Railway to provide first aid and emergency medical services to slum-dwellers, poor vendors, beggers and travellers at Varanasi railway stations.
