My community outreach in Detroit
Sustainable Development Goals: 3, 6
- SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being
- SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation
Detroit has one of the highest homeless populations in the nation. Additionally, access to clean water is a critical problem in many communities. Clean water was even more important during the pandemic as Detroit saw one of the worst COVID surges in the nation. Hence,during during the COVID pandemic, I helped create mobile hand washing stations for my community. I went to Home Depot with my mother and was able to get 10 mobile handwashing stations that we built at home. These stations were then placed outside temples, stores, and homeless shelters and have been maintained by the respective communities.
I plan to continue my work on providing access to more such stations and also plan to use this platform to educate the community on the importance of hand washing, masking, and vaccination. This is my way of being a part of the solution.
