Story

Do you know that most lifestyle diseases – like diabetes, obesity and heart problems – can be stopped right at the start just by eating healthy and nourishing food? It seems simple, yet Indian children are becoming victims of diseases unknown to our ancestors. Over 50% Indian adolescents are short, thin, overweight or obese, and over 80% suffer from micronutrient deficiency (UNICEF, 2019). School-going children are suffering from diseases like diabetes and hypertension.

This problem is caused because Indian children are not eating right. Children and parents, especially from poor backgrounds, do not have the right knowledge on eating healthy. At the same time, junk food from outside comes at a very low price, but nutrition seems expensive. People lack the knowledge on how to make healthy and tasty food within their budget.

So what can we do about it? We can change this situation just by empowering children with the right knowledge and practices so they choose healthy food. Our nutrition programs are already bringing a change! For example, a 14-year-old girl from an urban slim who did not like milk is now consuming milk daily. A 13-year-old boy has stopped skipping his meals. Another 13-year-old girl who used to thrive on samosas and chips is now making her own tasty salads and even convincing her family members to eat it. These small steps have the potential to give birth to a new India – an India which is healthy, nourished and strong.

We want to empower each and every underprivileged child with the knowledge and tools to start their journey of good health. Can you help us? It takes just Rs. 1,000/- to empower one child. How many children would you like to support?
