Helping empower our very own Hellen Keller.
Born prematurely, Ms. Sishna Anand aka the Hellen Keller of Kannur, was from birth denied the gifts of vision, hearing, and speech that we all take for granted.
But that didn’t stop Sishna from completing her education and vocational training with the help of Power Braille.
What’s even more heartening is that she plans to pursue higher studies. To help her achieve her dreams, Aster Volunteers provided her with an advanced Power Braille device, given to her at a special ceremony, by none other than Shrimati KK Shailaja Teacher, the Minister of Health.
The Aster Volunteers Green Choices program will initiate a series of activations that will enable us to shift to a more sustainable future. We firmly believe that sustainability should be at the core of our business, and this is the first step.
Eco tales is a storytelling initiative to spread lasting awareness amongst school children on the need for preserving nature. The initiative will reach out to 50 schools in Kerala. We feel that the best audience for these stories are the ones whose future is actually at stake.
Aster Community Connect wants to better lives through providing livelihoods, medical aid, employment, free surgeries and more. And we do this through the help of our volunteers and partners. We will continue telling these stories of good that touched hearts and healed the one community we are all a member of - humanity.
As the people of Kerala get back on their feet, it’s time to rebuild - starting with their homes. Aster Homes will help rehabilitate or rebuild homes that were wholly or partially affected by the Kerala floods. We need volunteers to help execute this project.
