On the occasion of Children’s Day, Annapoorna Trust in collaboration with Rotary Bengaluru Platinum City launched SaiSure multi nutrient health mix at Tamil – Telugu Govt. schools in Jalahalli West, Bengaluru. These are two schools established in this region to benefit the migrants from Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
The event took place in the presence of Rtn Pavan Kumar Jain – President of Rotary club Platinum City, Rtn Ashwath Narayan Rao – Assistant Governor 3190, Rtn Kakoli Maity – TEACH Chair, Rtn Sangeetha, Smt. Padmini – HM of Tamil school, Sri Doddegowda – HM of Telugu school, Sri Vishwanath – SDMC Head, teachers Smt. Puttalakshmi & Smt. Latha. Rtn Ashwath Narayan Rao – Assistant Governor 3190 was the Chief Guest. Mr. Sushanth Karanth – Manager Govt & Partner alliances, Mr. Anil Lingayat – Senior Executive operations represented Annapoorna Trust.
Rotary Bengaluru Platinum City has been conducting various programs in these schools for many years. Current President of Rotary club Platinum City, Rtn Pavan Kumar Jain, a man with a large heart and always a delight to interact with, has been leading from the front despite his busy business schedule. Adding morning nutrition, with due support from Rotary Bengaluru Platinum City, in the form of a health supplement to increase immunity in these little children was the icing on the cake and the need of the hour.
In the launch event, Mr. Sushanth Karanth – Manager Govt & Partner alliances, Annapoorna Trust said, “Annapoorna Trust, through its morning nutrition programme, has been able to reach out to over 1,000,000 children spread over 23 states and 4 union territories. It is a delight that, from this Children’s Day, the little students of these 2 schools would be receiving free morning nutrition in the form of SaiSure multi nutrient health mix. Most of the children hail from economically weaker sections whose parents also go to work early in the morning. Morning Nutrition, as research has shown, has a lasting effect on the health of children and aids in their physical and mental well-being, academic achievement and cognitive development. Current multi-nutrient supplements available in the market (Horlicks, Bourn Vita, etc.) are beyond the reach of the economically weaker sections and hence school-going children are unable to get these supplements on a daily basis. SaiSure is designed to meet 50% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of most of the Micro-Nutrients. We are grateful for Rotary club Platinum City for having come forward to support this noble cause. Looking forward to expanding this mission to more such schools in Bengaluru”.
Children celebrated Children’s Day with beautiful dance performances. Prizes were distributed to children who had won in sports & cultural activities. Stationery items were also distributed by the Rotarians to the children on this occasion.
