Challenge

About a quarter of total population of India consists of children aged 6-14 years.Children who suffer from hunger do not have the same potential for learning as healthy and well nourished children.Poor nutrition among school aged children will diminish their cognitive development either through physical changes or by reducing their ability to participate in learning or both.This program will help them in performing better in education by serving hot cooked and nutritious meals to them at schools

Solution

We provide hot cooked and nutritious noon meals to children attending government schools across India.

Long-Term Impact

The long term effect of this program is to reduce the levels of malnutrition among schoolchildren in India and improve their learning abilities.We are serving more than a million children with nutritious meals every school day across India.
