HelpHygiene Chapter India Workshop


Our HelpHygiene Chapter in India went to a school run by a nonprofit, Aashray Society, in Noida, India. EC member, Madhav Piplani, and four other HelpHygiene members that he recruited. There he and the other four members talked to a classroom of underprivileged children about the importance of staying clean. They demonstrated how to properly stay clean in order to prevent noxious disease, in correlation with our mission statement. They also donated toiletries to the school from the previous drives that they had held. They were about 45 individual bags of toiletries, like bathing soap, hand soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo and hand sanitizers for school. We are so proud of how amazing our chapter in India is going and we can’t wait to see what will come in the future!

Dec. 20th - Dec. 27th 2017 : Project India

The HelpHygiene team traveled to India in December of 2017 for HelpHygiene Project India. 5,000 dollars were used towards this project (most of which was collected during our local talent show at MRHS). We assembled a total of 650 sanitary packets (5,052 items), and we delivered 550 of these packets to underprivileged women and children in Nabarun Seva Niketan in Kologhat, West Bengal. We also funded a water pump (priced at $1,000) in a village in Kologhat with no access to nearby clean water. We visited an old age home (Amar Seva Sangha) and gave a care packet to each senior, and also donated 50 packets to kids in Saraswati Vidyatam, an adoption center.
Thanks to all our members, donor, supporters and sponsors who made our biggest project of the year as successful as it could be! click below link to watch the video on 2017 HelpHygiene projects and Project India.
