The Heroes for Humanity program addresses critical gaps in rural India's community development. Challenges include limited access to healthcare, including gynecology and vision care, and a lack of menstrual health education. Financial literacy is also scarce, hindering sustainable community growth. The program, led by a team of 500 "Heroes", aims to empower these communities through education and skill development.
