Paediatric Healthcare & Education Project

Kadapakkam is a rural town in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, located approximately 150km south of Chennai.

ASHA works alongside the East West Foundation at three sites in Kadapakkam: the orphanage, medical centre and school.

Through this project, ASHA has:

• Funded the local school for education resources/supplies.

• Volunteers have had the unique opportunity to present educational workshops.

• Conducted child growth assessments with the aim of ensuring that children are having diets with adequate caloric intake and nutritious value.

• Conducted outreach health projects which involve delivering women’s health education workshops and alcohol/tobacco education.
