Adieu From GlobalGiving

You are aware that eating too much salt is bad for our health, but there are many people who think that it’s only a cause for concern in our later years.

This isn’t true, as eating too much salt during childhood increases blood pressure which then tracks into adulthood and later life, increasing the risk of strokes and heart attacks. That’s why we are committed to sensitizing not only our children but their families and communities too, to reduce salt intake across all ages. By doing so, we can reduce their risk of heart disease and avoid the unnecessary healthcare costs associated with treatment.

We are happy to share that our project will continue to sensitize children in 16 govt. schools of Chandigarh for another six months. These sensitized children would sensitize their families on the harmful effects of excess salt by delivering key messages on salt reduction.

Taking our project objective further, we are extending our reach to families and communities across the country. Recognizing our efforts over the year, Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has asked us to provide the tips for salt and sugar reduction, which they will include in its “guide for safe and nutritious food at home”, an important tool to sensitize school children, families and their communities.

We believe that this initiative will surely impact the health outcomes of many lives in the years to come.   

We are feeling woeful that the time has come for us to say goodbye to our friends and supporters on GlobalGiving platform. We had a great journey and wonderful memories of sharing and learning. We will continue our efforts and commitment to improving the health of people.

Thank you so much for giving your support to us!! Adieu.
