My name is Advita Karnad. I am 14 years old and in Grade 9 at Indus International School, Pune.
The pandemic has transformed our lives in a myriad of ways. As we settle into the new normal, the biggest challenge for everyone is how keeping our personal things 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 a lot of this crucial equipment.
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 that the fruits, veggies, and other items are kept sanitized and clean during the Pandemic, to create an environment that is more secure. A great aspect of this SURAKSHA BOX is that it only costs INR 2500 per box.
This campaign 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 the well-being of the underprivileged around us and safe-guard our community.
