Save The Children Of 100 Villages

1.2 million children died of preventable diseases in 2015 (Source: UNICEF) which means more than 10 children are dying in India in the 5 minutes that you spend in reading this. You can either choose to ignore or MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Our Story ...
“During a field visit, one day I have experienced two infant deaths; both of which could be prevented by simplest interventions. One baby died of pneumonia; it was a case of home delivery as the mother ran away from hospital and breastfeeding didn’t happen. Other was of a low birth weight baby (1.3 kilograms); the mother believed that they should eat less for a smooth delivery. Extremely perturbed, I started working on sustainable ways of preventing such deaths at scale”

                   -- Rajesh Tamadapally, Prime Minister’s Rural Development Fellow

Many such deeply disturbing experiences  lead to 5 PMRDFs joining hands for the cause of child survival & development and take it up as a life-time mission.

Why are we fundraising?
We have initiated a few successful pilots & here is a snapshot of our journey till now. 
We need to demonstrate our impact at scale so that we can influence policy & programmatic changes at the Government level. So, this financial year (2017-18), we are planning to demonstrate impact at a scale of 100 villages in Central India and raising funds for the same.

First 1000 Days
The first 1000 days of a child’s life not only impacts child survival but also physical & cognitive development for their entire life. It also affects the child educational ability and lifetime economic productivity, forcing them into vicious cycle of ill- health and poverty. Effects of stunting (a form of malnutrition; height-for-age) below 2 years of age are irreversible too. Read more

What do we plan to do with the funds?
This fund would be used majorly for building technology infrastructure, R&D and building systems  necessary for scaling up operations to 100 villages.
Here’s how your contribution can make a difference:

Dear Friends,

Happy to share that we have selected 65 tribal villages in Podia block of Malkangiri district for our operations reaching out to a population of 24,463. We are getting a lot of support from the district administration in this regard. It's going to be a challenging task ahead as 31% of ASHAs (Govt. community health workers whom we will be training as Swaasthya Saathis (SS)) are illiterate and 73% of them have studied less than 7th class in a poor quality education system.


With all your support, we are not going to look back. We will create impact in these challenging areas. Very soon, we are going to to take up baseline surveys and will update you on the progress.

Thanks,
Rajesh & IDO team
