Activities and impact
Healthcare: Our most important intervention in the past two years, over multiple waves of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sambhav Foundation conducted mega vaccination camps, with over 6,117 vaccinations administered to waste pickers and their families in 10 locations in and around Bengaluru.
Training programs : Training programs had to be moved to Sambhav Foundation’s online learning platform, and this shift to hybrid learning led candidates to embrace technology through our learning apps and also ensured uninterrupted learning.
Working with the waste picker community so very closely has been a one-of-a-kind project experience for Sambhav Foundation, opening the team up to a lot of new learnings and experiences from the lives of waste pickers and their homes. The project has also given us a clearer picture of the aspirations, strengths and weaknesses of waste pickers - helping us to help them better by enabling livelihoods opportunities and providing access to quality healthcare.
