When the coronavirus outbreak reached the Indian shores, Mansi Ranawat realised, that while the fundamental steps and equipment that one needs for precaution may be available to the most, but what about all those people who did not have access to these basic things?


What about learning a new skill and using it to serve the people and community around us?

Meet Ranawat, now makes handmade masks to help those who are in need to cope up with the shortage in the market.

“When this outbreak took place I realised that my family and I had all things necessary to keep ourselves protected; that made me think of all those people who did not have these basic things. Therefore, I decided to do my bit by making these handmade masks. I also learnt sewing in this process”, says Ranawat, a class 12th student of St. Angela Sophia Sr. Sec.school, Jaipur.

With board exams getting postponed, she started making handmade masks from the clothes and polythene bags provided by her mother in her home, and contribution of such raw materials from other members and neighbours around her.

“My school has deeply inculcated the values of empathy, kindness, and serving others. I’ve actively served in NCC for the last four years. I think the government is doing its best to provide us with the best medical facilities and I’m hopeful for future improvement” maintains an enthusiastic Ranawat.

More than an entrepreneurial spirit, Ranawat’s humble efforts are an ode to the spirit of empathy and compassion, where limited resources are never a hindrance to efforts.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me.
