The north-eastern state of Nagaland characterised by hilly terrains and multiple tribe population is all set to have the flagship Morning Nutrition Programme for its school children. The program was started by Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust on 07-Mar-2022.
The State of Nagaland has hilly terrain and is not easily approachable. The schools are in remote places in this region. With the single pointed vision, “Let No Child Go To School HUNGRY EVER!” and tireless efforts of Annapoorna volunteers, the Trust has shown its presence in the north-eastern part of our country.
2624 school children studying in 72 schools across 3 districts of Kohima, Phek and Kiphire in the state will now receive SaiSure multi-nutrient mix that will provide them with balanced nutrition and increased immunity. A formal MoU has been signed between MDM (Mid-Day Meal) department and Annapoorna Trust to introduce SaiSure micronutrient health mix along with Milk to the government school going children.
Mr. Shanavas C. (IAS), Principal Director, Directorate of School Education – Kohima, Nagaland, while addressing the students during the launching ceremony of SaiSure multi nutrient Health Mix, advised them to aim high, to study well, to work hard toward their goals, and to keep good health. He welcomed Annapoorna Trust for launching the health mix in three districts of Kohima and said that he would be happy to extend any help needed to expand the program in many more districts. Mr. Santhosh Allath – National Manager & Mr. Vivek Kumar – Manager – Operations, CSR Partners & Government Alliances represented Annapoorna Trust during the ceremony.
