During the first wave of covid, I have walked with the pollination project and created a chain of homely made sanitizers over Kolkata. I provide training and build capacity to the people in the slum so that they can make hand sanitizer and distribute it among the slum. The seed grant was used to buy raw material for the sanitizer.
During the later phase, I have walked with another funding agency called seed of change where we are making an app to build capacity for the urban poor mothers on nutrition, the health of the child, health of the mother, urban gardening, and other techniques which will help them to secure their food security. We have already conducted two workshops on nutrition and organic urban farming. The third workshop on mental health is being scheduled in the upcoming months. The app is going through beta testing and soon to be released ( although you will get a copy of the app in the Android store).
Presently we are working on the children who are compelled to stay at home during this time. We are now producing a series of DIY videos on mental health and physical health especially for the children who stayed at home for a prolonged time.
