Help improve the health and sanitation condition of a family by giving a hygiene kit, INR 550

The extremely bad condition of health and sanitation is common knowledge. But it is rapidly becoming a major cause for concern in many parts of the country, even more so in flood affected regions. This has become a focal point due to the significant rise in life threatening diseases. Amongst its many endeavors, Janakalyan has taken the initiative to help improve the state of sanitation in ten flood-affected villages.

How It Works

Janakalyan understands the importance and the sense of urgency that such causes warrant. Hence a group of people from the staff has taken charge of this cause and has been working vigorously towards our goal. • Members of the staff personally visit the village.
• They interact with the families, and village representatives to assess the status of the prospective beneficiaries.

• Based on the information gathered, families best suited to receive the hygiene kit are identified and short-listed.
• Families that are selected are given a token and asked to collect their hygiene kits on designated dates.
• Meanwhile, the administrative staff at Aapna Janakalyan buys the hygiene packages and prepares them for distribution.
• The packages are brought to the villages on the designated days and distributed to families that were issued the token.
• Each family receives only one kit.

The Basics

We believe that improving the state of health and sanitation in all parts of the country is a critical step towards ensuring a healthy society. Every family or village that we help takes us one step closer to our goal of a clean and healthy India.
