Awareness programme and distribution of masks in Horamavu, Bangalore

The Karnataka Interstate Migrants Alliance for Transformation (KISMAT— a BREADS’ project) in collaboration with the Department of Social Work, Kristu Jayanti College, Bangalore conducted an awareness programme on hygiene practices on 29 March 2022 in Horamavu, Bangalore.

The programme intended to create awareness particularly among the children, about the importance of maintaining cleanliness, especially of their hands, to promote healthy habits during the aftermath of the pandemic. Using practical methods, the staff demonstrated how we could be unaware of the dirt and germs on our hands and then taught the children a 7-step method of handwashing to ensure clean hands.

The team also distributed masks to the migrant children at the end of the programme. The distribution benefitted 79 children from Andhra Pradesh and North Karnataka staying with their families in this community.
