Summary

The project would solve the problem of hunger and malnourishment in the 1000 poor and underprivileged kids living in the slums that are enrolled at the centre. In our study, more than 50% of the children are underweight and show other signs of malnourishment. It is difficult for them to focus on studies when they come on an empty stomach. Most of the families are not able to afford fruits and vegetables to provide their kids a healthy and balanced diet.

Challenge

The project would solve the problem of hunger and malnourishment in the 1000 poor and underprivileged kids living in the slums who are enrolled at the Centre. More than 50% of the children are underweight and show other signs of malnourishment. It is difficult for them to focus on studies when they come on an empty stomach. Most of the families are not able to afford fruits and vegetables to provide their kids a healthy and balanced diet.

Solution

The micro project aims to provide one apple to each kid every day. This would help in improving their nutritional status to a great extent. It would not only add nutritive value to their daily food, but also help them in building resistance and fighting diseases. Added apple to their diet would certainly make them healthier and stronger.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help 1000 children remain in school and complete their cycle of primary education. The project would generate the interest of parents and children in getting educated and understanding value of education. A resource pool will be created in the community through capacity building and training of teachers for long term sustainability. The project would also help in reducing child labour and restoring their Right to Education, thereby giving them a brighter future.
