Project Description

 

To counter malnutrition, Glenmark Foundation, along with their NGO partner, Spandan Samaj Seva Samiti, initiated this project with the aim of improving the status of child health in the tribal villages of Khalwa block. Foundation has scaled up to other locations such as Khaknar (Burhanpur district) and Bhimpur (Betul district). The children have been recovering at the community in a non-facility based care. The design of the project has dual focus: It helps to relieve the suffering of currently malnourished children on one hand while on the other it tries to provide food security in which most of the vulnerable families can access adequate food and nutrition. The backyard nutrition garden and the free range indigenous backyard poultry has been able to help marginalized families have access to direct absorption of protein and other nutrients. The revival of millets has also been advantageous for the poor families, as they now have nutritious food to consume and the surplus can be sold for their financial gain. Regular home visits for monitoring and counselling on various issues of child health and health camps are also undertaken.
