Santosh Agarwal – Annapoorna Co-ordinator, Vidarbha, Maharashtra spoke as, “Today Annapoorna Trust serves free morning nutrition to over 500,000 children at remote distant locations and various geographies across India in 6000+ schools across 22 States and 3 Union Territories. They also have their presence overseas in countries such as Indonesia, Thailand, Nigeria, Sri Lanka & Australia. “
SaiSure multi nutrient health supplement is available in 3 flavours of Almond, Vanilla & Chocolate. Like Khichdi, which is provided as part of mid-day meal, SaiSure would be served as part of morning nutrition. We request each one of you to get glasses from your homes. We will start providing SaiSure daily. To understand the impact & change it has had on growing children in overcoming malnutrition post partaking SaiSure, we would take details of general health parameters of the child like height, weight etc from school authorities. Based on the response & feedback, we are looking forward to expanding this project to other parts of Vidarbha & Maharashtra state as well. Sushanth, Anil & myself all represent Annapoorna Trust. They have come all the way from Bangalore. SaiSure is a multi-nutrient supplement, a malt-based composition, offered totally free of cost, for Government school children. Different models are followed for morning nutrition based on geography & feasibility like milk with cookies or bananas, cooked breakfast, SaiSure with milk. I request each child once again to get glasses from home regularly.
One of the teachers told to get water from home along with glass. In another village school, Teacher told we are grateful for Annapoorna Trust for having come to Murtizapur and serve the needy children.
We co-ordinated with teachers & cooks of nearby schools to assemble at one place wherever feasible & even visited remote schools in villages. We shared the brochures having details of Annapoorna Trust and SaiSure & explained to them how SaiSure is a right enabler for rural children to improve immunity, enhance cognition, optimize weight gain, increase bone mass & ensure healthy blood count. They were excited to know the progress made by Annapoorna Trust in the field of combatting malnutrition across 22 states & 3 union territories.
