My name is Aditi Khandelwal. I am 15 years old and in Grade 10 at Indus International School, Pune.
Since a young age, I have found immense happiness in meeting new people and forming new relationships. To see the various backgrounds people come from and the difference in every life has always fascinated me. Apart from that, my fondness for art and poetry has developed over the years, making them an important part of my routine and probably in my future. Lastly, I’m very passionate about animals, especially dogs.
The pandemic has changed our lives in a myriad of ways. As we settle into the new normal, the biggest challenge for everyone is how they keep our personal effects safe by sanitizing and disinfecting them. Trying to get day-to-day items ( masks, wallets key chains, etc) and daily purchase items like vegetables, fruits, food items, packaged goods sanitized is a big concern for everyone. This concern gets very complicated for the underprivileged as they cannot afford sanitizers etc.
The SURAKSHA BOX is a device that resolves this issue. This is a clever innovation that was created by a teenager from Pune - Aditya Pachpande and works on the principle of UV radiation to disinfect all these items. The Suraksha Box will help Kirana stores, veg/fruit vendors, govt schools ensure the fruit & vegetable vendors, govt schools keep safe during the Pandemic and create an environment that is more secure. It costs only INR 2500 per Suraksha Box.
This campaign of mine aims to impact the community around our school - by helping to distribute Suraksha boxes to veg/fruit vendors, Kirana stores, govt schools ( so that they are safe when they open), etc.
I request all of you to support my campaign so that we can also contribute to their well-being of the underprivileged around us and make our community much much safer.
