THE PROBLEM

Surface contamination is a major reason for the spread of COVID-19. Low-income communities are more vulnerable to community transmission and spread. Vegetable vendors, policemen, health workers etc. are at high risk. They use various methods to keep their items clean- keeping in sunlight, washing with soap, baking soda, potassium permanganate and hand sanitizers. However, these methods are not effective and some are even harmful. The best way to sanitize these items is by using UV radiation. 

Ultraviolet-C radiation or UVC is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces. According to the Food and Drug Association, UVC effectively destroys SARS-Coronavirus, and many have a similar nullifying effect on the novel coronavirus which causes COVID-19.


THE SOLUTION


Recognising this need, a young innovator, Aditya Pachpande, has taken matters in his own hands to create the UVC radiation-based SURAKSHA box that will disinfect and sterilise essential items. This would be distributed to people from low-income homes in the community around our school in Pune.


"Suraksha Box”- a UVC Sanitiser Box that disinfects everyday items without using chemicals and detergents - is getting rave reviews from the scientific community, including getting a Govt of India MC&I) Patent Published and is tested, approved & certified by CSIR-CMERI (ICMR Approved lab of Govt. of India).  The box can enable protection against all kinds of bacteria and viruses including COVID-19  by facilitating surface decontamination of items such as office supplies, mobile phones, vegetables, groceries, etc.



The Suraksha box uses UVC light in a controlled environment to sterilise items inside it. The UVC lamp emits light of 240-nanometer frequency perfect to destroy viruses and bacteria on the surface of these items. The inside walls of the Suraksha Box are lined with aluminium bubble wrap that reflects UVC light evenly around the items and is also easy to clean.

IT COSTS JUST INR 3000 TO PROVIDE ONE SURAKSHA BOX.

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN

My name is Pushkar Gireesh Nidagundi. I am 16 years old and in Grade 11th at SNBP International School, Rahatani, Pune.

The pandemic has changed our lives in a myriad of ways. As we settle into the new normal, the most notable difference is how we keep ourselves and our personal effects safe by sanitising and disinfecting. This brilliant innovation will surely help in this regard.

The Suraksha Box will ensure the fruits & vegetables, the cash that is exchanged is disinfected. This will transform the whole process of buying from vegetable vendors, and make it safer for everyone involved. Let us extend a helping hand and help boost their income during this difficult time.

I request all of you to support my campaign so that we can also contribute to their well-being in our own small little way. The money collected from this campaign would be used to provide them with Suraksha boxes.

FAQs

Will we get to know the details of how the money was spent? 

Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to NEXTGENINNOV8. It will take from 60 to 120 days after that to get details of who the beneficiary was with details of them. Once I get this information from them I shall upload the picture of the beneficiary on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.

How does crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.

It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
