Didactic Materials Donation, DRC

News & Events
The Democratic Republic of the Congo 🇨🇩 Team of Awareness 360 reached out to an under-developed school at Kinshasa, DRC last month to distribute didactic materials among 250 underprivileged school children. We figured that the need of these learning materials is paramount, and hence took action. The aim of this project was to foster their learning process as they usually cannot afford those materials. Awareness 360 strongly advocates for access to quality education for all. We are proud of our DRC Country Ambassador Duale Nkanu Beni and his team for pulling off this successful project. #Awareness360 #Awareness360DRC #SayYEStoChange https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2256377431355390&type=1&l=7b020aadc6

শুভ নববর্ষ to all of our Bengali followers in the country and around the world! 🇧🇩❤️ We at Awareness 360 believe that the New Year is not only about asking for joy and happiness for oneself but is also about bringing joy to those around you. Keeping this pledge in mind our team decided to spend the first day of the new year with 15 wonderful children of ‘Momenshahi Shishu Sodon’ in Mymensingh. These children do not get the same facilities as us due to their circumstances and are unable to enjoy this day like the rest of us. So keeping the 10th SDG in mind, this project was put forth and organized by two of our core members, Irtiza Dip and Jimia Alam Lita to remove such inequality. Three…

A Day Full of Colors!

A Day Full of Colors!

Team Awareness 360 had a fun-filled, colorful day with the kids of the William and Marie Taylor School of the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) in Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The kids painted their hands and later washed the paint off following the proper technique that they learnt earlier during the day. It was a very effective and amusing way for them to practice safe hand washing. Team Awareness 360 is grateful to the school authority for their unending support towards this project. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2015037515489384&type=1&l=bde3eb1043

In much of the world, diarrhea is not fatal. But in Bangladesh, it can be. Roughly 45,000 people there die from it each year. My mother was sick for only one day before she died. In much of the world, diarrhea is not fatal. But in my homeland, Bangladesh, it can be. Roughly 45,000 people there die from it each year. In 2014, my mother was one of them. Throughout much of the developing world, serious diseases are linked to improper hygiene, poor drinking water and a general lack of sanitary awareness. Across the globe, however, many do not know this. My own family did not pay much attention when my mother first fell ill. She had probably eaten unclean street food on her way home from work. We all…

In the heart of Mymensingh, there exists a dingy confined hallway, with a little scope to even see the sky properly. The place is called Nazma Boarding Brothel. Among the twenty brothel-villages that are legal in the country, Nazma Boarding is one of them. The ugly truth is that a lot of sex-workers inside the brothel have little to no knowledge about HIV and STDs whereas they are most vulnerable to these diseases. To help this disregarded group of people in the society, Awareness 360, a non-profit youth organisation, held a health awareness campaign on 9 August 2017 at Nazma Boarding Brothel. Shomy Hasan Chowdhury and Rijve Arefin were the co-ordinators of the project called Make Brothels in Bangladesh Safe and it was funded by Global Changemakers. The first session…

Nous faisons partie de l’association mondiale Awareness 360 militant pour la conscience sociale autour d’enjeux mondiaux tels que l’eau, l’hygiène, l’éducation, l’émancipation des femmes, l’éradication de la pauvreté ainsi que l’encadrement des jeunes. Notre devise est de faire de ce monde un monde meilleur et motiver chacun à vivre sciemment. Nommée ambassadrice française de l’association, mon équipe et moi-même (moyenne d’âge 22 ans) avons souhaité pour notre première action « The heartwave/la vague du cœur », nous pencher sur la problématique des sans-abris. Il s’agit effectivement d’un sujet qui nous tient à cœur, plus particulièrement en cet hiver difficile qui n’a fait qu’affaiblir leur état de santé. Nous devons agir, le constat est alarmant : 2025 personnes dorment dans les rues de Paris en ce moment ! Dans un objectif de solidarité, nous avons décidé de leur…
