Serving the Unserved, Reaching the Unreached!
What We Do

AARTHI started its activities with a combination of information dissemination, health awareness and educational training interventions. So far, the society has carried out its activities through its network of self initiatives, without the support of funding agencies.

Nonetheless, some of the activities have been funded by external sources, i.e., government bodies. In times of need and to maintain the consistency in the services provided by AARTHI, the elected body deems it necessary to personally fund the monetary demands of the association.

Following are the programs conceptualized and implemented by the teams of AARTHI.
