Dear Donors,

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well.

The last few months have been tough for many of us in India, as we braved through the devastating second wave of Coronavirus and its multiple variants. Thanks to your support, we were able to mobilize the resources quickly to launch Covid relief work in the communities we work in. This has been appreciated by the beneficiaries, communities, local government officials, and our field teams.

Relief and Hygiene Kit Distribution Drive: In June, we launched a drive to distribute relief and hygiene kits containing dry groceries, mask, sanitizers etc to the needy households in our communities. We have prioritized the households that are women-led and that have out-of-school girls. So far we have distributed the kits to 100,000 households benefitting almost 500,000 individuals across Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh states in India. 

Community Calling and Connect: We initiated a community calling initiative to understand how the families and rural communities we work with are doing and the support they need. As of date, we have been able to connect with over 500,000 community members across 15,000 villages. Here are some of the insights:

  • Over 62% of respondents reported a loss of livelihood
  • 70% of respondents said they needed food support
  • Over 35% of respondents said that they were unaware of Government social security and education schemes
  • 3,500+ villages have orphaned children and 5,000+ villages have reported having women-led households (due to loss of sole earning male member)

Vaccine Awareness Campaign: Over 5,400 of our Team Balika (community volunteers) have pledged to beYoung Warrior under the multi-stakeholder initiative launched by UNICEF India to equip youth with tools and resources to create awareness around Covid. We have also created and shared widely over 200 collaterals on Covid awareness, education support schemes by the government, and vaccination drives, in partnership with Noorahealth and Haqdarshak.

We were able to kick off our Covid relief initiatives swiftly because of your support and the trust that our communities place in us. We feel extremely privileged to have your continuous and unwavering support.

But the fight against Corona is not over yet and we will continue to run and launch more initiatives in our communities till the end. It only costs USD 15 to provide a relief kit to one family. With just one click you can save one more family from the after effects of Covid today!

With Gratitude
