http://www.millenniumalliance.in/ shortlisted two out of our three entries for the next round of its innovation challenge. We are happy about it and we thank all our supporters, friends, and our very valuable Karyakartas on/off the ground, we have a long way to go before we start sharing pleasantries properly! Kudos team!
If you still remember her, our friend Neeru (with almost no fingers in her hands to hold on to: differently abled with no fingers), from a poor family in#PhulwariSharif block of #Bihar, not only completed her matriculation but now also is an extremely active volunteer for our #TB Awareness & Treatment Program in partnership with #WorldHealthPartners (WHP). Dedicated and sincere, in the last one year, since we helped her get due benefits under the relevant disability scheme of government of India, she has successfully multi-tasked to not only complete her studies but also to support many like her to get the due benefits. The only equipment she has is a bicycle (always has enough energy and enthusiasm to reach the training venues on time) and it goes without saying that she does have a BIG HEART!
Now, while she is a part of a cause with us to structurally address the monster called #TB, she earns around Rs. 2,000 per month as a community service remuneration to support herself and her family. We are so proud of you, NEERU!
