According to the Global Nutrition Report,12 India has the world's largest number of stunted (46.6 million) and wasted children (25.5 million). Two percent of its under-five children are overweight. Twenty-three percent of women and 20 percent of men age 15-49 are underweight, and almost the same percentage are overweight or obese (21 percent of women and 19 percent of men). The proportions have doubled in the last decade.
The meals provided are many times the first meal of a child. We help children like Ankita, who is 5 years old migrated to Delhi with her family from Rewa village in MP in search of a better life. Her father is a ragpicker and mother is a house-wife. Ankita and the family had struggled to get their daily meals. Ankita was enrolled and ate meals daily which otherwise she wouldn't have been able to get. This improved her health and learning capacity to help realise her potential.
Long-Term Impact for a better future of vulnerable children: 1. Daily meals ensure better health and thereby creating better concentration power for learning. This minimizes cost and visits to the doctor. 2. Keep children safe from abuse and off the streets. 3. Everyday education and helping build a better future. 4. Increase in Happiness Quotient of Child
