In the past few decades India has made huge strides in its development. And although there have been, and continues to be, improvements in every area of Indian society, we at Shikshit Bhartiya believe that the health of our nation is the foundation of it all. Without a healthy population, nothing further can be achieved.
At Shikshit Bhartiya we know that the underprivileged face many hardships, and that oftentimes hygiene can seem of trivial importance in comparison. But under our Health & Hygiene program, we seek to create awareness about the importance of clean and healthy living.
Through monthly health programs, we raise awareness of HIV, cancer, and other diseases. We provide information about the importance of clean water and teach people proper sanitation techniques. We teach the importance of a healthy diet and proper dental hygiene. We also have a women’s health program and a child’s health & growth program.
In addition to conducting these camps to teach the importance of a hygienic lifestyle, Shikshit Bhartiya also assists the local authorities with various sanitation projects.
An educated India is a healthy India, and only a healthy India can continue to advance and excel.
