To encourage the children to make their own creative masks and build the habit of wearing them, JKAF started the ‘Make your own eco- friendly mask’ initiative to bring behavioural change in children during the COVID-19 crisis through an eco-friendly approach. Geeta Vaishnavi hand-painted Kashmiri Aari embroidery motifs on these handmade masks. These masks were then donated to Guru Nanak Sukh Shaala, Old Age Home, New Rajinder Nagar, New Delhi. Students from the remotest villages of Shopian and Baramulla, to those in New Delhi, actively participated in the initiative.
