We are happy to share that IVillage is now taking orders for school uniforms from schools. Since 5 years, we had been making school uniforms for our partner school, Pardada Pardadi but now we extend this service to other institutions across the country. Pictured above is our first order of school uniforms, after PPES, scheduled to be
dispatched soon this month.

These masks are currently being donated to the people, who cannot afford to buy one, by an NGO, Seeds along with Honeywell. We are happy to be able to contribute to this noble effort.
