Salaam Mumbai Foundation is the rural outreach program of the Salaam Bombay Foundation that started in 2007 to create a tobacco-free Maharashtra. The primary objective is to increase awareness of the health hazards of tobacco use and reduce consumption rates across the state.
In order to create a meaningful impact in rural communities on a large scale, Salaam Mumbai Foundation has harnessed the capacity of state and local institutions, both government and non-government.
These include Zilla Parishad schools, village health workers, Anganwadi and other public health workers appointed by the state government, gram panchayats, local NGOs, block and district level education officers, and other local influencers. The first level of interaction is with the ‘Master Trainers’ who are government appointees. They, in turn, train school teachers on the tobacco issue and the curriculum to be taught in school. Salaam Mumbai Foundation works on the “Train the Trainer” module – trainers being local influencers - to enhance local participation and ownership and to build sustainability of the program in rural Maharashtra.
