Daivajna Helpline strongly believes that women should have equal socio-economic, cultural and political opportunities as men. With this ideology in mind, a successful attempt was made to achieve a 50:50 ratio for both genders. Daivajna Mahila Udyog is a branch of Daivajna Helpline established 2003,that has developed a unique model for development and empowerment for low income female workers. Daivajna Mahila Udyog has more than 1000 members and is functioning across the shimoga district of Karnataka State.Daivajna Mahila Udyog has enhanced the skill of its members via capacity building and communitarian programs in the field of tailoring, Papad making, Agarbatti making works, making pickels. As a result of Daivajna Mahila Udyog's business and development strategies, thousands of women across Karnataka have gained financial independence and improved the prospect of a better life for themselves and their families.

In the field of education Daivajna Helpline is providing Free tutorial class to poor students, who are interested in studies to improve their education. Every year Daivajna Helpline is involved in honoring the talented students by distributing prizes by motivating the students to continue their education. Every year Daivajna Helpline distributes books, uniforms and all basic things to the poor students to continue their studies and showing education is a path to succeed in life. Daivajna Helpline is not only concentrated in studies but also motivates the childrens by organising games, dance comptetion, fancy dress comptetions, quiz comptetions thus helping the childrens to improve their skills. We also work with the school systems and communities to plan and implement our programs. Thousands of volunteers, mainly women, belonging to the same communities as the children work with us to implement the interventions at the grassroots. This not only ensures more effective implementation of our programs, but also helps build capacities at the grassroots for providing quality education to the children. Empowerment of women, especially from economically weaker sections of society and from minority religious groups is often cited as one of DHL’s most significant contributions to the communities in which it intervenes.
With a mere 0.9% of India’s GDP being spent on healthcare, the scenario, not surprisingly, is unpleasant. Data shows that every second child in the country suffers from malnutrition, that over 1,000 people succumb to Tuberculosis every day, that almost 60,000 children are born with HIV each year! Basic health care and health assurance is a distant dream for most of the population. Good health is a precursor to a good education and a financially independent life. But while a privileged few are willing and able to afford home check-ups and expensive treatments, most of the people living in semi-urban and rural areas are complete strangers to professional health care practices. With this in mind, Daivajna Helpline launched the Community Health programme, a multi-faceted project that focuses on establishing sustainable practices and spreading awareness regarding preventive and promotive health among the rural masses. Under this programme, Daivajna addresses the health care needs of poor and underprivileged members of various communities through projects like the Free health Checkup Camps, Fruits Distributions for poor patients. Davaiajna Helpline is also induced in free yoga training classes to be healthy because "health is wealth".
