The pilot initiative of Annapoorna Morning Nutrition in Tripura has been extended to 1 year after successfully completing 3 months of initial pilot program launched on 16th December 2021, in the state. 1491 children in 8 schools were provided with SaiSure Morning Nutrition in the pilot initiative. Tripura was the first state in the Northeast to start Annapoorna Morning Nutrition program.
Mr Arjun Sharma, OSD (On Special Duty), Ms Chandni Chandran, IAS, Director of School Education, and State Project Director, Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan shared the reports of the impact study of the first pool of children having SaiSure for the first 3 months to the administration. After receiving positive feedback and with the request letter received from PM POSHAN, Tripura government, a new MoU has been signed for the pilot initiative to be extended for one more year. The reach of Annapoorna Morning Nutrition has also been expanded to other remote locations in the districts of West Tripura and Unakoti districts of Tripura. A total of 3018 children in 24 schools will receive SaiSure Health drink.
SaiSure has indeed added value to Annapoorna’s efforts to bring nutrition to the doorstep of school-going children and has enabled a far greater reach to the unserved remote geographies of rural India. Proper nutrition for growing children is the need of the hour. The more these kinds of initiatives are taken, better will be the result in health and overall development of the child. These children are the future torch bearers of our nation. Annapoorna Trust will continue to play a leading part in providing quality Morning Nutrition to reach the end goal of creating a nourished society!
