Philanthropy Work: Launch of Yashoda
Apart from his interest in Sport, inspired by JSW Foundation's work in mitigating malnutrition in Palghar District, Parth oversaw the development of an Android-based app to monitor the development indicators of children under the age of six. Local women, nicknamed ‘Yashodas’ inspired by a female character from Hindu Mythology were trained to take photographs of mother and child on their mobile phones, iris-scan them and enter the required information in the app. Today, this allows for real-time, GPS-enabled tracking of the nutrition and growth markers of children, letting doctors and officials take follow-up action where needed. Malnutrition, as a result, has fallen drastically in the three talukas of Palghar that the JSW Foundation works in. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has mandated that the technology be rolled out across Maharashtra.
