Challenge

A second Covid-19 wave is currently devastating families and whole communities across India. WEP partners have identified 273 families (some migrant workers returning to their homes) from among our students and alumnae in Jharkhand, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu whose needs have become critical.

Solution

Our partners will distribute sanitation, dry ration parcels, kitchen garden seeds, chickens and safety information to these families of five for three months at a cost of 6000Rs. ($82.00). Partners will also conduct regular COVID awareness sessions and provide students and alumnae Ripple Effect training to further disseminate critical in their communities.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term impact has been identified in three ways: 1. support enables students to remain (remotely) in the WEP program and school/college; 2. trained students relay information on COVID, kitchen gardens, and poultry rearing to protect and inform their families, neighbors and communities; 3. kitchen gardens and live poultry provide ongoing sustenance and introduction to entrepreneurial activities.
