We cannot build a peaceful world on misery of an empty stomach. Malnourishment amongst children is an enduring enigma plaguing the entire world today. World bank data indicates that India has world’s highest demographics of children suffering from malnutrition. Said to be double that of Sub-Saharan Africa with dire consequences. 44% of children under 5 are underweight, while 72% of infants have anemia. India needs a lot more to be done to tackle the menace of malnutrition and NGO’s are plugging the gaps in the Government schemes. One of the major detriments of malnourishment from many is improper development of brain and mental faculties resulting into poor performance in schools translating into lower employability. Support ‘Sattva” today to render your small but crucial contribution in giving a healthy start to Indian children.

Samvedana has partnered with ICDS and adopted 76 aanganwadis in ahmedabad through project ‘Sattva’. Sattva is our commitment to over 5000 beneficiaries, most of them from slums or low income areas. This challenging yet grassroot level connection with women and children is towards improving the infant mortality rate. This makes us a partner in nation building towards higher Social Progress Index (SPI).

Our objective with Sattva is to foster an active and responsible partnership with government projects to support welfare of child and women through nourished living. By providing the right aid to curb malnourishment we envision to partner in nation building and collectively working towards higher Social Progress Index (SPI) of our nation.
