Over the years, foundation has succeeded in creating a viable model of community based malnutrition management that has helped malnourished children recover in the community itself.

Improving Maternal and Child Health in rural areas

Reaching out to over 1,50,000 people, the key objective of this project is to improve the infant and child health among the rural population. Along with NGO partner Institute for Global Development, a series of mass awareness and targeted programs are designed and conducted to sensitise the villagers on aspects of Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent health (RMNCH+A) issues.

Holistic interventions to improve health of children under 5

High population density, lack of water and proper sanitation result in polluted environments that adversely affect health, especially that of women and children.  Child health project running in the slums of Andheri East, Mumbai, in association with NGO partner, Niramaya Health Foundation, aims to provide curative and preventive healthcare.

Medical intervention camps are conducted to track the status of malnourished children. Importantly, the children are monitored at every stage which has led to 50% recovering to healthy status. Pregnant and lactating women are provided with health supplements and are educated about the need for nutrition for themselves and their children. Interventions also involve health awareness and education sessions, health camps, health marker days and health libraries for the community.

Foundation has reached out to over 49,000 people living in 19 communities of the Marol Pipeline.
