Challenge

Many families in the rural parts of the Nellore district belong to low income groups and are typically below the poverty line which is about USD 35 per month. The average size of the family is 4 members. The children from these families go to the schools run by charity institutions or government. While the schools can offer them education, a more basic need of food and nutrition needs to be supplemented in order to make them perform better academically.

Solution

This project is to serve the children with hot nutritious food as a mid day meal on every school day. This will help improve the retention, stem the drop outs and also help the children become healthy and focused on academics. The mid day meal is designed keeping the local palate in mind and maximum nutrients are packed into it. Once a child is well educated, it will help the family come out of the cycle of poverty forever. This project will also help children become healthy and strong.

Long-Term Impact

In the long term, there are multiple social impacts that a program like this can have. 1. End the cycle of poverty for the poor families 2. Reduce the public health burden of the society 3. Produce an educated, skilled workforce for the economy and nation 4. Unlock the benefits of education for the local society 5. Improve the standard of living of the people at the bottom of the pyramid.
