"Creating awareness about menstruation…"Deane de Menezes, Volunteer Mumbai
The community responded positvely. 80% households now segragate waste. The compost pits we constructed, can produce 300 kg of compost per month, and can be sold, creating a source of income for the community members.Ranjit Ambastha Director, CHF India Foundation, Pune

I became confident after the Sugran workshops. I learned to prepare exotic, international dishes, something I would never have been able to without this project coming to our community. I have now started taking catering orders.Kavita Prakash, beneficiary

In the process of learning, the importance of books is immense, whether science, arts or mathematics. Hence, the idea of a digital library to enhance the learning of visually impaired. We use the open source software, DAISY, to record books. This allows a volunteer, anywhere in the country to record a book, for someone else’s benefit, as per the relevant educational curriculum.Varun Yeggina Volunteer, Bengaluru
Community members are receptive. This inspires me to contribute more.Krishna Yadav Volunteer, Pune
