Millennium Fellowship Project: Toothbrush drive
Toothbrush drive is a project aimed at raising awareness towards different individuals about their oral health and also sharing free toothbrushes. All activities would be in a public space where oral health myths would be disbanded and proper oral hygiene practices would be taught to the populace. Being focused on SDG3-Good health and wellbeing, this project would help prevent various dental problems, address any concerns of the attendees and in general, lead to better oral hygiene practices. At the end of the months, feedback would be gotten from the various attendees and this would be both orally and via a questionnaire.
