While serving healthy breakfast helped improve the nutrition intake of the children, we noticed that the children continued to fall sick regularly. Lack of clean drinking water was found to be the culprit.
To address this, we began executing drinking water projects to meet the water needs of villages. Simple and cost-effective RO water plants, bio-sand filters and other such solutions were developed on a need-basis in the villages.
Till date, we have executed 6 drinking water projects, which benefit more than 10,000 villages.
In line with the Indian Government’s initiative of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, we also undertake cleanliness drives by ensuring provision of dust bins and construction of toilets in schools and centres, and a safe waste disposal thereafter.
Doing this has helped us instil in the children and villagers the importance of personal health and hygiene.
