Celebrate our #Changemakers

A nation is built on the health of its mothers and children.
And it takes a village to make a difference.

The Antara Foundation works with frontline community health workers in rural India to tackle maternal and child mortality and malnutrition in some of India’s most marginalized communities.

We celebrate the people who make a difference in our communities

- Avindra Kirkarne, Auxiliary Nurse Midwife (Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh)
