At Healing Fields Foundation, we address our commitment to health education and financing needs of the disadvantaged communities by developing relevant initiatives/models so that it could effectively intervene and stop the downward spiral of poverty.
School Health Education
Our School Health Champions (SHCs) disseminate awareness and information among children about nutrition, reproductive health, personal hygiene and environmental sanitation to put a strong foundation for a healthy and liveable environment. We have developed a training kit that includes a trainer’s manual, learning aids and hand-out material for the students which has content that aligns with what children learns in their school curriculum.
After testing for successful implementation in Bangalore, where 80 SHCs organized nutrition exhibitions and grew kitchen garden in their school along with other children to promote nutritious diet, we are rolling out the same program soon in schools in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
