Challenge

Malnutrition is a major public health challenge particularly among orphan girls, who at risk of nutritional challenges. Malnutrition in girls not only represents both a cause and a symptom of poverty. The care givers of orphan girls or girls herself cannot afford adequate foods. The problem is to lead to physical and psychological challenges throughout her life course. Malnourished orphan girls are more likely to enroll late in school, drop-out more and academic performance worse than other

Solution

This destitute home provides breakfast and dinner to 25 orphan girls aged 5 to 15 years for 220 school working days in a year. Lunch will be served to these girls during school working days under the governmental mid-day meals scheme. Through the fund raising, orphan girls receive nutritious food items with needed basic nutrients requirements for good physical growth and very good academic performance in their schools.

Long-Term Impact

The micro project will give opportunity to feed and send 25 orphan girls to schools/colleges who lost their parents in terrific situations. We have long-term plans to support 25 girls to be well educated and qualified. We will offer need-based vocational skills trainings. Finally, we make them employable to lead future decent life and also they in turn extend financial support to poor girls in difficult circumstances.
