By incorporating the awareness programme into its curriculum as part of this association, Safeducate endeavours to empower its trainers and students to inspire others in working towards cervical cancer awareness
Intending to create serious awareness about cervical cancer among India’s rural families and youth, Safeducate, India’s largest training, skilling and consulting firm has joined hands with CAPED (Cancer Awareness, Prevention and Early Detection Trust). As part of this association to create a social impact, Safeducate trainers are being trained on cervical cancer awareness across all its learning centres in the rural areas of 10 states under its Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY). Safeducate has organized ToT on cervical cancer awareness on it centres within two states – Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
CAPED is a trust established to disseminate information and awareness about the latest developments in the field of cancer. The organization has chosen the cause of women-related cancers with a key focus on cervical cancer. Their mission is to identify and create different arenas to spread awareness, knowledge and carry out screening, thus empowering women to take action regarding their own health.
The “Train the Trainers” programme facilitated by CAPED CEO Mridu Gupta and its Head of Programmes, Madhu Yadav will enable the Safeducate trainers to share the knowledge about cervical cancer with their students and rural area families whenever they go for mobilization. An awareness programmes for truck drives is also being facilitated by CAPED on 13th January 2020 at Safexpress Binola hub.
Speaking on this strategic association, Divya Jain, Founder and CEO of Safeducate, said, “In India, cervical cancer accounts for nearly 1/3rd of the global cervical cancer deaths. The situation is more disturbing in the rural areas where the majority of women are illiterate and unfamiliar about the hazards of this disease. Through this alliance with CAPED, Safeducate aims to train families especially those that are below the poverty line. We will train the youth once in every month about cervical cancer and assign them tasks to spread awareness among their communities. We believe that through this initiative, the trainers and students will lead and inspire others in working towards cervical cancer awareness.”
Cervical cancer kills more women in India than anywhere else in the world despite being the only 100% preventable cancer among women. In fact, it is the first cancer in the world to have not one but two vaccinations aimed at preventing it. Yet, in India, approximately 132,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 74,000 lose their battle to the disease each year. By teaming up with CAPED, Safeducate endeavours to empower the younger generation to play a proactive role in raising awareness and increasing the acceptance of HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening.
