Swasti (Wellbeing in Sanskrit) is a Global South civil society organisation that is committed to adding 100 million “well’thy” days for Vulnerable Communities. We bring the missing pieces of wellness together (mental, social, financial, environmental, systematic) to elevate the discourse from physical health to overall wellbeing. We integrate the technical/medical aspects with other aspects of wellbeing, with a strong focus on prevention and promotion. Our success is in re-inventing systems to make it work for all, particularly for the vulnerable, following the spirit of the SDGs to “leave no one behind”. Our multidisciplinary teams have successfully demonstrated scalable, cost effective and sustainable models in partnership with communities, and support partners to reach impact.

Barakat Bundle

Barakat Bundle is a nonprofit that works with local communities to create life-saving care and education bundles for mothers and newborns in need. Each Barakat Bundle includes 1) evidence-based medical items; 2) our interactive health education calendar; and 3) our safe-sleep bamboo rocking cradle with a built-in mosquito net; all co-created with over 100 mothers, fathers, and healthcare workers in rural India using human-centered design.

To receive Barakat Bundle, mothers must give birth in a health center to increase access to skilled birth attendants. Barakat Bundle takes a financially sustainable approach to maternal and child health by selling our Indian-made, safety-certified bamboo cradles in North America at a premium price to subsidize distribution of full Barakat Bundles to families in need in South Asia. At Barakat Bundle, our vision is to give every newborn and every mother an equal access to a healthy start.

Our experienced team, 70% of whom have a physical disability, regularly travel to remote areas and to the homes of people with disabilities to give them an appropriately fitted mobility aid, so they can be independent. We provide them free-of-charge because we understand that many of them live in poverty and can’t afford nor access basic health care.

A river once filled with garbage and neglected by the community became one of the most successful ecotourism sites in Sorsogon City. Bantay Kalikasan, in tandem with the local government and funder Energy Development Corporation, built tourism infrastructures, trained the communities and exposed them with different media platforms. It resulted to a significant paradigm shift in the consciousness of the people of Buhatan, thus Buhatan River Eco-Adventure Service Cooperative was born.

The Buhatan River Eco-Adventure is also regarded as the most successful community-based tourism in Sorsogon City. The people’s organization was actually invited by the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources to share their best practices for others to learn from and possibly replicate.
