Community Aid and Response in Emergencies
In collaboration with Harvard University’s Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute and private sponsors, S9 has designed & built a self-sustaining mechanism for the spread of first aid literacy in Pind Bhegwal by training adults and schoolchildren in first aid, geo-mapping emergency service routes, collaborating with local government representatives, and building a core of trained First Responders.
Using Telemedicine to Address Diabetes
As the sole implementation partner for US-based Glucose Trail, S9 enables rural communities to detect and prevent early-stage diabetes. Saving 9 has built a framework for managing diabetes, trained local female healthcare companions, and collected granular local language health data through an user-friendly mobile app.
MASEEHA AMBULANCE NETWORK
Making Healthcare Accessible
To establish the Maseeha Ambulance Network, S9 recruited ambulance drivers and trained EMPs in medical first responsiveness, acquired and fitted a custom-built ambulance, geo-mapped emergency routes, and established an emergency hotline.
COMMUNITIES OF CARE
A Framework for Empathy
As the students of today become the adult citizens of tomorrow, S9 aims
to strengthen schools as agents of socio-emotional support for students in order to create more inclusive communities. The school becoming a safe space provides an opportunity to mitigate various channels through which traumatic experiences could occur. This is done using Teacher and Administrator trainings to be more empathic and proactive in their approach of teaching, creating school action plans and linking schools together through mentorship programs (in other words, by weaving a network of Trauma Informed Schools).
