The past one year has been one of some difficulties and tribulations but thanks to the staff of Bella that  we have continued to stay true to our pledge and provide healthcare to the women and children of Uttarakhand.  We have been able to stay focused because of our team members’ hard work and their dedication.

Due to some unforeseen and unfortunate events over the last many months, Ms Colette Smith, our co-founder and COO Emeritus, has been unable to devote all her energies and resources to the growth of Bella Healthcare. However, the team that she has put in place, has followed her directions and continued to successfully strive to reach the goals set by her.

Bella is now partnering with Max Foundation and providing health camps in a number of villages. We are also conducting classes in adolescent health education to the students of Uttarakhand Public Schools. These programs are very successful and with the support of our partners, we are looking forward to expanding them.

The future is bright. And we are impatiently waiting for Ms Colette Smith to return and lead Bella to that bright future!

I want to take this opportunity to thank one and all, our staff members, our supporters and our partners (especially Ms Mohini Daljeet Singh) for their hard work, their support and their trust in our vision, called Bella.

Reproductive Health is the very heart of development and crucial to delivering the Bella Health vision – a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth rate is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.

2015 was an exciting year and the Female Adolescent Reproductive Health program has been a great success. With much persuasion, we were able to launch out adolescent class in proscribed public schools in 2014.  The content, educators and students have made this program high impact with documented substantial changes in positive knowledge, attitude and behaviour. The rigorous evaluation speaks volumes of itself. The community feedback has been positive and these tools will make the new generation healthier, their families and communities healthier.

Our program helps to dismantle the misconceptions about reproductive health and teach in depth about such sensitive topics. Our programs want to address the problems by providing high quality health services supplemented with health education.

We want to empower women with education, so they can have a healthier life. We also want this education to begin young, so that a healthy life course approach is adopted early in order to be better maintained throughout the different stages of life and health.

Bella hosted 2 Vodafone employees this year, in collaboration with Vodafone’s World of Difference, CSR project. It was amazing to be among the chosen NGO’s to host employees of Vodafone. The process also entailed our employees to attend workshops in Delhi and give a presentation about Bella Health’s work at the Dasra Philanthropy Week in Mumbai to a large, international audience.
