Children are the cornerstone of our society and their growth, development and health is of paramount importance. We have a systemic and multi-level problem of poor health among children.
* Many urban and rural children fall prey to vices of tobacco early on.
*Many children are deprived of basic amenities & their dietary choices are abysmal .
*They are under tremendous stress – stress to survive, peer pressure, monetary struggles, family struggles and more.
*Poor hygiene is a way of life
All this leads to unhealthy, disease prone and unhappy childhood
Many parents understand these hazards but turn a blind eye to it either because of the lack of time, money and knowledge.
At Namaste LIFE, we believe we can make a difference through education. Basic health education can be given at school to give these children a fighting chance for a healthy, productive life.
SOLUTION AT YOUR DOORSTEP!!!
HEALTHY CHILD-HAPPY SOCIETY PROGRAMME
School is a place where many of these children from the financially backward families can be influenced, informed and trained to take up positive attitude and health care practices. Apart from home, the school has the most influence in shaping a child’s life.
Our most ambitious project under NAMASTE LIFE is ‘Healthy Child – Happy Society aims at working with School children and teachers with a two prong approach
The program aims to provide the children with knowledge and skills to become healthy and productive adults. Habits formed during childhood follow use into adulthood. Hence training the children to have better health habits will resonate in their adulthood.
Step 1: Workshops for School Children
- Positive Health Care
- Good hygiene & cleanliness habits
- Practical tips for Healthy & fun living
- Balanced nutrition
- Motivating children for optimum performance (academic and co-curricular activities) without pressure

The key messages of this project will not only impact the children and their futures but also impact their families
