Volunteer inspired Project H.E.A.L - Hygiene Encouragement Awareness Learning

Check out this great clip! I am so proud of the new hygiene initiative (H.E.A.L) conceived by the current batch of GPM-JDC Entwine fellows for vulnerable children in the slums of Kalwa, India. 

After a month of volunteering with Gabriel Project Mumbai in REAP classrooms in Mumbai, Simona, Benjamin, Adina, Shira, Itai, Rebecca and Ilana created this incredible initiative after seeing some children with rotten teeth and other physical ailments caused by lack of hygiene. 

Education and access are the key to health in the slums and the group is doing both: educating the children as to healthy/hygienic habits AND access to hygienic materials. Really beautiful...Help them out by donating here! http://www.rootfunding.com/campaign/4598
