Challenge

Most of the visually challenged children are from rural areas and their parents are not financially sound. Some are also ignorant of the right diet that should be provided to these children right from their initial stages of birth. So they provide very poor quality food that lacks nutritional value. This makes these children malnourished, underweight, growth stunted and unhealthy. Due to their poor health conditions, they are unable to concentrate on their studies.

Solution

This project benefits 300 visually challenged children.It helps us to provide rice,dal,cereals,vegetables and fruits to these children from rural areas.They will be able to regain the lost nutrition and health that they did not get at the right time.They will get the right amount of nutrition through vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients and this will in turn aid us in developing healthy children.You can celebrate any of your special days by providing a single meal or a day's meal.

Long-Term Impact

This project will be very useful to all our visually challenged children.It will help in providing them with the required physical strength to face their future.It will certainly boost their confidence level and keep them away from diseases.This way, they will understand the importance of a balanced diet and will promote healthy eating habits in their future generations.Also,it is a great opportunity for you to interact with these children and create evergreen memories on your special day.
