Habitat for Humanity India is participating in the Mahindra Open Drive (MOD), a two-day festival of music and specially curated food to be held in Goa on 8th and 9th November. It also encourages those who are attending to support a cause through the sale of their ticket or through crowdfunding.

Habitat India is rallying supporters to advocate for the education of girls and menstrual hygiene through its ‘Stay at School’ campaign, and for the elimination of head-loading among women in rural India through the ‘Water Wheels’ campaign. Actress, talk show host, and columnist Pooja Bedi has pledged to participate in the Mahindra Open Drive to support this campaign.

“Merely talking of change is not enough. Creating a workable, social impact solution in the form of water wheels will not only free women from the drudgery of transporting heavy utensils over long distances but will also ensure that women remain healthy and girls do not have to miss school,” said Pooja Bedi, Actress and Habitat for Humanity India Brand Ambassador.
