Hum Sajag Caravaan : Encouraging vaccination through Street Theatre



Using a combination of different traditional theatre forms and music we are reaching out in areas with most vaccination hesitation in southern rajasthan. Actors use popular folk songs to talk about many myths and fears of vaccination. The story revolves around a young man returning back from his place of work with visible symptoms of covid and refusing to either isolate or go for testing. Through many folk songs and poetry, he is convinced that he must isolate and then post recovery get vaccinated. 

We have also created 1193 Nigrani committees who are actively promoting vaccination in their villages.

"If I feed my child after getting vaccinated, the virus will come through milk in the child" said one of the participants during the performance. Pregnant and lactating women are experiencing higher doubts and hesitation towards vaccination. Through theatre and discussion, we are trying to clarify these concerns. We have reached more than 15,000 people through village events, meetings, trainings and workshops.
