HEALTH AND FITNESS

Here at Don Bosco Ashalayam, we work to improve the access to quality healthcare services for underprivileged children. By identifying the root causes of healthcare challenges, we work at the individual, community, and systemic levels to develop innovative solutions and help implement quality healthcare services. The ambit of our work includes improving the health and fitness of our children, providing them with proper nutrition, and early identification and treatment of communicable diseases. Also, we include sports and games like football, basketball, rugby, hockey, skating, cycling, karate, and swimming in our pedagogy to encourage our children to build values of teamwork and self-confidence.

With the goal of enhancing access to high-quality healthcare services for children from poor and underprivileged communities, Don Bosco Ashalayam launched its health programme.  We conduct Campaigns and regularly scheduled health camps to offer medical assistance, medication, and health screenings. The scope of our work includes enhancing child nutrition and health, focusing on our children's fitness activities, and early detection and treatment of communicable diseases.
