India's REACH Engine!
Project Swaraksha is an initiative of Anaxee Digital Runners Pvt Ltd. It was started on 22 May 2021.
"At Anaxee, we are building India's largest last-mile outreach & data collection network of 100,000 Digital Runners (shared feet-on-street, tech-enabled) to help Businesses scale to rural and semi-urban India, on-demand. More on www.anaxee.com"
In the first week of May 2021, while villagers were learning to navigate through the digital process of registering themselves on the CoWIN portal, the government opened vaccination for 18+ age brackets, leading a lot of demand for vaccination and limited supply. Urban population quickly booked slots in rural areas, leaving locals there at risk of Covid infection
Dejected by this, the team at Anaxee took it upon itself to digitally assist the rural population for vaccination. Since last one month, the company’s tech-savvy Digital Runners are working on the ground assisting people from deep rural interiors, also addressing vaccine hesitancy that has cropped up due to myths/misinformation about Covid vaccination. Vaccine hesitancy is not limited to geography but is a global phenomenon. Anaxee believes, it can be addressed only through structured counseling. The villagers are being counseled one on one and runners are ensuring successful vaccinations. The Runners need to report each activity on Anaxee App and they get paid for every successful vaccination. This is a unique opportunity for Runners to earn income while working on a social cause. Anaxee plans to generate employment opportunities for 50,000 Rural youth in the next 6 months.
Helping India fight the Covid emergency
Crypto Relief is the result of the global crypto community mobilizing to help India combat the COVID19 crisis, and to help it prepare for future outbreaks. The fund was started by Sandeep Nailwal (co-founder, Polygon) and has since been supported by Vitalik Buterin (co-founder, Ethereum) and Balaji S. Srinivasan (former CTO at Coinbase).
It is currently 800+ members strong, all of whom care deeply for India and its people. The singular focus is to reduce the immediate suffering of Indian citizens, which is accomplished by:
connecting those in need to the verified sources of aid,
sourcing essential supplies and equipment from across the globe and providing them to the overwhelmed and under-resourced facilities,
setting up oxygen plants and dedicated COVID-centers in remote and underserved areas of the nation.
