Health programs:
CORR-The Jute Works usually attaches importance to preventive health care program. We arrange vitamin capsule 'A' program for group members. It will be no exaggeration to mention here that we are able to give information regarding primary health care to the producers. Particularly pregnant women follow our suggestions. They take special care of themselves and give birth to healthy babies.

CORR-The Jute Works has taken a new scheme to meet the need for producer’s medical support. Producer can have the opportunity of financial assistance for her treatment in hospitalization, operation & serious cases.

We promote and market the products in abroad to create this much-needed employment at home and to ensure a decent return for their labour, free from exploitation. This independent earning, however small, belongs to the women themselves and gives them a place of respect at home and in the society.

Environmental programs:
CORR-The Jute Works makes endeavors to halt degradation of the environment. Programs of distribution of saplings, deep wells and sanitary latrines are arranged. Steps are taken to promote cleanliness. The environmental programs are given below:

Tube well:
Want of pure drinking water is major problem in the rural area. The producers were habituated to drink pond and river water, which is not at all hygienic. After learning the purity of underground water, many of them have installed deep wells. CORR-The Jute Works have distributed deep wells and contributed to set them up. Producers who do not have deep well near to the village, purify and boil the drinking water.

Use of the sanitary latrine in the rural area was rare. People would go to Jungle or field to relieve nature. Since CORR-The Jute Works succeeded in motivating the producers to adapt to sanitary system, gradually the situation has changed. At present most of the houses are furnished with sanitary toilets. CORR-The Jute Works has provided a number of sanitary toilets for the rural women producers.

Sapling distribution program:
The women producers participate in sapling distribution programs of CORR-The Jute Works every year. To take impart the producers in keeping ecological balances, the sapling distribution program attaches importance in the environmental activities of CORR-The Jute Works.
