With relevant permissions from Government for 5 districts in Vidarbha region, morning nutrition has started in Akola for 1050 children and 250 children in Amravathi. Very soon, the programme will start in the remaining 3 districts – Buldhana, Yavatmal & Washim as well.

SaiSure health mix, a nutritious supplement is a quick and scalable solution to address malnutrition.

Providing the fundamental rights to every child, like right to nutrition, education and good health, is not merely the responsibility of the parents, the government, but it is the responsibility of the society at large and as long as these three units – the Samaja (society), the Sarkara (governments), and Sanstha (institutions) – work together, much can be done.
