• We educate my community in Gopalpura on personal hygiene and menstrual hygiene. I have reached out to many families with health education, facilitated several families to build toilets, and motivated dozens of families to grow kitchen gardens. Also, I have motivated a considerable number of women and girls to use sanitary napkins. I have also provided first aid to hundreds of people.

About The Project

Healing Fields’ flagship program harnesses the power and passion of women to create change. Women are chosen from marginalized and underprivileged areas empowered with the knowledge to build healthier communities. They are trained in basic first aid and illness prevention so that they are not only a source for important information, but can act as a first responder for minor health issues. They concentrate on key areas like health education, health care access and health financing, as well as nutrition and sanitation intervention. Trained and mentored in entrepreneurship alongside community health leadership, the CHEs assure a steady supply of health and sanitation products. For the first time in their lives, they are able to create an independent income and are recognized for the work they are doing in their communities. The confidence gained as leaders in their community and money earned builds newfound independence and agency.
