COVI Reach

The Project was developed with a goal to transform the fight against COVID into a community driven activity from a government dependent activity. A community driven outcome of COVID FREE MYSURU is being achieved through creation of a sustainable system and integration of panchayat and village task forces into it, along with Information Care and Network (ICAN) youth groups and health care workers. The project initially was launched for a period of two months with the support of Aris Global’s CSR outreach.  Since the launch of the intervention, the project has been able to serve seven Gram Panchayats comprising 56 villages of Mysore taluk, and a population of more than sixty thousand people.
