My India Healthy India And My India Healthy India 2.0

Lives Impacted:

National cleanliness drive conducted in India.

My India Healthy India 1.0, was a mission driven by our chairman Dr. Moopen, who on the 70th anniversary of Indian independence was inspired to do something more, something special, other than merely hoisting a flag.

And that something special was to undertake an awareness drive about the health risks posed by unclean neighborhoods. But that’s not all, Aster Volunteers participated in the actual cleaning up of many locations across Bangalore, Hyderabad and many more.

Aster Volunteers organised the 2nd installment of this country-wide cleanliness drive, My India, Happy India 2.0, to commemorate 71 years of our great nation’s independence.

On August 15th, 2018, 8 locations - Kochi, Kozhikode, Kottakkal, Hyderaybad, Bengaluru, Kolhapur, Vijayawada, and Wayanad, all saw over 1,000 Aster Volunteers come together to take up the challenging work of cleaning up their part of India.

They undertook various cleaning and sanitation activities under the umbrella ‘My India Healthy India’. This will be a recurring event, conducted in partnership with external NGOs and volunteers.
