Better health through education

Kalleda students A. Harish, D. Ravali and V. Shrithi talk to villagers about their living conditions

A good education benefits many people, as demonstrated by Kalleda students who visited villagers to discuss the connection between living environments and diseases and how small changes can improve the communities’ health.
As part of the Social Awareness Program, 8th and 9th class students went to Kalleda, Ravoor, Parvathagiri and Annaram villages to gather information. Then they educated villagers on health problems like how standing drainage water can attract mosquitoes which spread dengue fever and chikungunya and how improperly dumping waste can cause contaminated food and water, which leads to viral fever.

Students A. Harish and D. Ravali participated in the work, which is part of the school's Social Awareness Program

After meeting with the villagers, students also shared their results with all Kalleda students.
