My Waste, My Responsibility

India being the second largest populated country in the world after China with more than 1.27 billion people contributes to 17.6% of the world’s total population (Official Population Clock). Annually, 62 million tonnes of garbage is generated by 377 million people living in urban India (Report of the Task Force on Waste to Energy, Planning Commission, 2014). Our country has become the third-largest garbage generator in the world.


Holistic Approach to Women's Health

The term 'Family Planning' was initially coined by Margaret Sanger to indicate 'to have babies by choice and not by chance', in her pioneering social work promoting use of contraceptives in the slum population of Harlem, New York in the early twentieth century (Srinivasan, 2014). In India, it was in the All India Women's Conference in 1935 held at Thiruvanthapuram, where it was resolved to champion modern methods of contraception as a part of women's right to have babies by choice and not by chance.
