Shravan's story shows how this project is creating healthier and happier children..

Name:  Shravan Prakash Wale, Aged 3


Shravan’s  family is staying in village Zole.  His father is a mason and his mother works as a wage labour. In the beginning,  Shravan was not attending the pre-school centre, though the pre-school teacher paid severals visit to his home. The problem was that neither he nor his mother was willing to send him in to the pre-school centre.  His weight was only 7.5 kg at that time, so he was a malnourished child. Due to his poor health, he used to cry continuously and so he was seen as a problematic child.

After a number of visits and discussions with his mother, the pre-school worker realised that Shravan did not receive any nutrition in addition to his mother’s milk, so his weight was not increasing.  Along with other NISD Staff, the teacher offer counselling to his mum and helped to explain her son’s health problems.  NISD organised a Paediatric camp and asked his mother to bring Shravan there for a check- up. Due to this, within 2 month time his weight increased by 2 kg. In the pre-school centre that he now attends, he is able to get supplementary nutrition

Now his health is improving and he is regularly coming to pre-school and getting mix with other children very well.  He’s no longer seen as a ‘problem child’.  His mother goes to work and can now concentrate well there, as she knows that Shravan is looked after in the pre-school very well. 

Your continued generosity has improved Shravan’s health and has got him attending pre-school. There is no doubt that this educational base and improved health will allow him to do progress in his life.
