Arogya World

23 February 2016

Founded by social entrepreneur Nalini Saligram, Arogya World has a two-year school-based program for diabetes awareness and prevention education with age-appropriate activities for 11-14-year-olds (6-8 grades). This program, developed in partnership with the NGO HRIDAY in India, uses influencers such as teachers and peer leaders to reach and educate 11- to 14-year-olds about diabetes and its prevention. The comprehensive program includes classroom and school-based activities, as well as outreach efforts in students’ homes and communities. We have partnered with Arogya World to develop content for the Nourishing Schools toolkit.
