National cleanliness drive conducted in India.
My India Healthy India 1.0, was a mission driven by our chairman Dr. Moopen, who on the 70th anniversary of Indian independence was inspired to do something more, something special, other than merely hoisting a flag.
And that something special was to undertake an awareness drive about the health risks posed by unclean neighborhoods. But that’s not all, Aster Volunteers participated in the actual cleaning up of many locations across Bangalore, Hyderabad and many more.
Aster Volunteers organised the 2nd installment of this country-wide cleanliness drive, My India, Happy India 2.0, to commemorate 71 years of our great nation’s independence.
On August 15th, 2018, 8 locations - Kochi, Kozhikode, Kottakkal, Hyderaybad, Bengaluru, Kolhapur, Vijayawada, and Wayanad, all saw over 1,000 Aster Volunteers come together to take up the challenging work of cleaning up their part of India.
They undertook various cleaning and sanitation activities under the umbrella ‘My India Healthy India’. This will be a recurring event, conducted in partnership with external NGOs and volunteers.
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.
