Our Program

Lifebuoy is championing the cause of reducing deaths due to preventable diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia by educating people about the importance of hand washing with soap. Through experience and research, we have found that a minimum of 21 days is required to create behavior change. So we have designed & implemented a 21 day school program aimed at instilling proper hygiene practices amongst children.

We are now seeking volunteers who would like to commit their time for our lifesaving mission. As a volunteer, you will spend just 1-hour a week for a 4-week period teaching children in affected areas about the importance of hand washing with soap. You will teach a fun curriculum built around superhero characters, which makes learning fun with games, songs, and exciting comic book stories.

Our Program

In recognition of your invaluable contributions through participation, we pledge to donate an additional Rs. 5000 per volunteer towards running the program around the world.

"If I got the chance to do it again, I would definitely make the time. Every child educated goes on to educate more; there's an exponential result from your efforts."
