The COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time and one of the greatest challenges that the world has ever faced. Here’s what we have been doing to address it in our own small ways.
Mobile Dispensary Vans
Desh Apnayen, Bharatiya Jain Sanghatana and CREDAI MCHI in association with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai are running Mobile Dispensary Seva Vans in Mumbai for:
– diagnosis and treatment of basic health ailments
– early detection and treatment of COVID
Mumbai : 5 lakh+ people screened!
India : 15 lakh+ people screened!
Desh Apnayen Actizens’ Club
The Desh Apnayen Actizens’ Club gives school students from across India a variety of opportunities to become an ACTIZEN – an alert, informed and active citizen. They also get to hone leadership skills, be it as the President, the Secretary or a member of the Club.
This year, we are putting together weekly activities such that the students can do them from within their homes! We have also tweaked our registration process for schools that want to start a Club or renew it.
Watch a short video that we put together with moving messages sent by our students.
Our chief mentor and founder, Shri Vallabh Bhanshali, shared deep insights with diverse audiences as part of a number of webinars organised by us and other groups. Here are a select few:
Dr. Chandrakanta Pathak, Principal and CEO, HVB Global Academy, shares her insights on using digital tools for effective student learning in this article.
Watch a heartwarming message from Ms. Naureen Kutty, a teacher at St. Mary’s School, about how we can help those in need and her efforts to feed the hungry during the lockdown period.
Watch Gayatri Patwardhan‘s touching appeal for animals and birds, shared as part of our activities for students. She’s from The Cathedral and John Connon School.
Could you please send us contact details of school teachers or principals with whom we can share information on how to access specially curated activities and educational content? Partnering with Desh Apnayen is voluntary, free of cost, offers many rewards, and now almost fully online!
You could send the numbers and email IDs via WhatsApp or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With warm regards,
Team Desh Apnayen
