Awareness talk at STES site, Pune
In 2010-2011, VMF was able to reach out to 40 sites all over India as against 14 sites in the previous year and 10 sites in 2008-2009.

To ensure good health of workers and their families, awareness programmes on hygiene-related health issues were arranged. These interactive sessions were conducted by VMF staff on 13 sites in Baddi, Chennai, Coimbatore, Goa, Ludhiana and Pune. At some sites in Pune, the staff was joined by PMC doctors or the visiting doctors on site. In all 1,910 workers participated in these programmes.

VMF had started providing mid-day meals to children from January 2010. In the beginning there were only 60 children from 2 sites enjoying the meals. As of 31st March, 2011, 350 children from 9 sites were benefiting from this scheme.

Street Play at Windermere site, Pune
AIDS awareness programmes were held at Ruby Tower and Kshitij, two sites in Mumbai. These programmes were conducted with the help of Mumbai Districts AIDS Control Society.

Street plays were organized for workers at 13 sites in Maharashtra. These plays depicted how addictions like tobacco, alcohol, 'gutka', prostitution, etc. adversely affected the workers' health and family. 2,165 workers watched these plays which were followed by discussions.
259 children at 7 sites in Pune were immunized. Vitamins, Iron supplements and some first aid material was procured from Pune Municipal Corporation and distributed on sites in Pandharpur, Pune and Solapur.
Education has always been VMF's priority. VMF ensures that children residing in the labour camps not only go to crèche on site, but also get enrolled in mainstream schools. Presently, there are 106 children attending mainstream schools from sites in Pune, Nashik and Solapur. To keep children and their parents motivated to continue formal education, VMF organized an Annual Day Programme on 21st August, 2010. As of 31st March, 2011, there were 12 creches (child development centres) in Maharashtra, Goa and Tamil Nadu.
