The United Nations considers universal access to clean water a basic human right, and an essential step towards improving living standards worldwide. For universal fulfilment of these rights to become reality, we will need the right systems: well-resourced, capable institutions delivering services and changing behaviour in resilient and appropriate ways, which is why Avaagat, a project aimed towards providing children and families with the tools and education to develop sustainable water, hygiene, and sanitation solutions, promotes the best policies and practices for ensuring safe, reliable water, sanitation and hygiene for all people. Avaagat is an initiative taken by Meeraa Ramakrishnan of C10A and Nainika Reddy of C10B in collaboration with the Future Leaders Program conducted by the 1M1B foundation.
Avaagat is used as a platform to spread awareness about the importance of good hygiene and clean water, where in awareness sessions are conducted with children about how they can purify their drinking water through eco-friendly and cheap methods and keep their surroundings, as well as themselves, clean. Another division of Avaagat is the actual solution to its main cause; sourcing clean and healthy water for families that cannot otherwise afford this. Avaagat, using crowd funding techniques and funds obtained through donations, focuses on building water connections and installing water filters in areas that lack pure drinking water connections. Millions of families around the world are suffering from deathly diseases caused by dirty and impure water. Dirty water can cause diseases such as cholera, typhoid and dysentery. Finding ways to prevent these diseases can save up to millions of lives.

Many of us are blessed with good education facilities, health and wealth. But, in reality, not everyone is as fortunate. Being privileged individuals, it’s our responsibility to care and share with the community. Many of us have the positive intent to do something good, but we don’t always find an opportunity. In line with this vision, we’ve started the SADE Foundation, an acronym for our mission of Supporting, Assisting, Developing, and Enriching the community, an initiative taken by Mohith Reddy Vankuri (Founder) and Sekhar Musunuri (Head of Operations), of IB 11A and IB 11B respectively.
By organizing charity events, fundraisers, and raising awareness, we can help our community become a better place for everyone. We hope to communicate and work with as many young and dynamic individuals as possible. Our goal is to work together as a determined group to tackle any issue we see fit to address in the community. Together we can achieve milestones. Be it raising funds for an underprivileged school, spreading awareness about the dangers of dengue and precautions to adopt, or bringing the attention of the public to environmental hazards, we can do it all. Together we can accomplish the impossible!
Our upcoming projects are a back to school donation drive, a charity basketball tournament and volunteering opportunities at government schools.
If interested in this initiative, you can learn more at our Instagram page @sade.foundation and email us any queries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Svasth Organisation is a student-led community organization that aims
to provide affordable and accessible healthcare to under privileged
families. The main objective of this project is to spread awareness
about health and hygiene. We believe in involving the whole student,
parent, and teacher community, to provide the most reliable healthcare
to the under privileged, free of cost. We have several initiatives
planned, such as medial camps at government schools, student led
orientations, and distribution of medicines to the needy under a
practitioner's supervision, for the near future. With your support, we
hope this organisation will be successful in achieving its goals, by
providing much needed health guidance to impoverished families without
compromising on quality. Further updates regarding our initiatives and
volunteering opportunities will be posted on our social media
(Instagram - @svasth_organisation). -- Megha, Kriti and Sumedha, IB
If you want to edit it a little bit, go ahead and if you have any
questions about the project, you can ask any one of us. I've attached
the logo, there's one with the slogan and one without, use whichever
works the best. Thanks for putting it up on Erudite!
Vishwasa-believe in yourself, believe in the future- is an initiative taken up on the Sustainable Development Goal of the UN of ‘Good Health and Well Being’, by Rhea Thakkal and Ankitha Reddy of 10C. The initiative aims to help children from government schools attain vital language & life skills as well as mental health attention. Gaining these two essential aspects builds up a stronger future for these children, and our program helps in facilitating the importance of oneself and teach various skills crucial in today’s society. Such skills for example include, public speaking and trust-building, which are incorporated through different activities. Our project is driven by our passion to be able to ensure that children of all levels are able to excel in this cutthroat competitive society. As well as, understanding the importance of mental health in this society. Not only will these skills help children in their future but will ensure that if they have to drop out of school due to unfortunate circumstances, they will have been imbibed with the basic necessities to lead a comfortable life and go to another level than their previous generations.
Working with about 40 kids+ right now, we see great potential as they’re all keen to learn. We realized that not only do students want these skills but need these skills. We work with teachers regarding how to identify those that have undergone abuse which we believe is vital in today’s society, especially at such a young tender age. With the key resources of the needs of the children themselves and qualified psychiatrists, the backup of our volunteers and our mentor, our project is set to be sustainable and we hope to reach out to as many schools and as many children as possible and provide them with these fundamental skills. We will be visiting the UN in New York City to be a part of the 1M1B Active Impact Summit in December, and we will be showcasing our project.

Our team is an enthusiastic and dedicated set of students of the CHIREC IBDP year 1. Our mission is to secure menstrual hygiene access to schools across Hyderabad and celebrate menstrual hygiene. This year, the team had organised a fundraiser at Hill County for the purchasing and installing of sanitary napkin dispensers at government schools that needed such provisions. Members of the team also went to the Sarath City Capital Mall and intimated a Period Talk wherein they had spoken to strangers about menstruation and the stigma around it in India specifically. Through this talk they wanted to break down this stigma that often deprives woman of the support they require. We also spoke to students in the government school in Masjid Banda to cut off the stigma.
