Actions

Propelling governance awareness and training

Our existing Village Leadership Schools (platform for trainings and governance meetings) are creating awareness, preparedness training, and social distancing for COVID-19, in addition to information dissemination on health and insurance schemes and connecting people to authentic sources.

Focus on agriculture and allied activities

Through on-farm activities, farmers’ collectives and trainings, the foundation team is enabling farm families to combat COVID-19 and diversifying farm income in the coming times.

Augmenting and rejuvenating water resources

Rural communities face acute water shortage, and the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak may increase India’s water woes due to pressure from migration. Water efficiency, rejuvenating ground water and making drinking water safe will play an increasingly critical role.

Transforming students’ lives

Transform Lives one school at a time now focuses on hand-washing activities and the inclusion of COVID-19 information into the current digital literacy curriculum and visual art learning.

Using community media

Through community radio Alfaz-e-Mewat in Nuh district of Haryana, campaigns, messages from the Health Department, and programs on "fake" news and inculcating hopefulness are engaging listeners.
