I’m Inspired. Cancer Awareness Campaign


I have been reading a lot recently about women who think they are dominated by opposite gender. I have always been interacting with lot of people about their achievements, failures and how they fought their difficult times. Hence again I gave it a thought to interact with people who are in the rural region.

Unfortunately I couldn’t visit the places due to some other schedule conflicting but I get monthly newsletter about the latest campaigns. Latest campaign was about anti-tobacco and cancer awareness program.

What I got to see is the tremendous amount of people who participated in the event. It was conducted in Hubli and Kamadhenu village

And most participants were ladies, supported by their husbands and their family member to gain knowledge on this. They took initiatives to spread awareness on cancer and health hazards of consuming tobacco

This was conducted by Grama Shikshana Foundation.
HUBLI
Women gave speech and presentations on how they can avoid ill effects of cancer. And why consuming tobacco should be avoided.

They conducted essay competitions to children to share the knowledge and spread awareness

I also got to hear from that village panchayat head popularly known as “mukhiya” in hindi and few other men who believe that a women, if empowered and educated on such important things, can educate whole village and keep her family safe.

Here are the photos which I received from the organizers of this campaign.

Finally I conclude this by saying this was written as part of response to  “Inspiring Blogger” award, Nominated by Erika. Thanks Erika
