“An initiative that focuses on preventing open defecation and promoting healthy sanitation habits amongst children especially in the rural areas by providing them access to reusable cloth diapers at reasonable prices along with discouraging the use of non-biodegradable diapers.”
Nearly 98% of the infants in India do not have access to diapers. Consequently, infants defecate in the open areas which leads to several health risks amongst them and their families. Disposable or non-biodegradable diapers that are unsafe for the child’s skin, have a blemishing impact on the monthly budget of rural families and are a major threat to the environment.
Project Sneh meets with these problems by providing reusable cloth diapers that are eco-friendly as well as economical. The project aims at creating awareness amongst the community on health and hygiene so that they can adapt basic sanitation habits. These cloth diapers are made by underprivileged women from natural fabrics that are safe for a baby’s gentle skin. While ensuring the safety of the children and environment, the project also directs on promoting women employment.
