There are 11 schools in Palwal, where Annapoorna Breakfast programme is being done since July 2016. These schools have 1250 children in all. These schools are in midst of rural villages and the children come from needy families.
During these times of pandemic, Annapoorna has come up with an initiative to increase the immunity levels of these children by providing them with Amla candy (Indian Gooseberry candy) and roasted chana (whole blackgram or chickpeas). Amla is a rich source of Vitamin C and Roasted Chana is a good source of protein, fibre and vitamins.
Each child was given 1/2 kg Amla candy and 250 grams of Roasted Chana so that they can consume them daily and stay healthy.
