Educating women and girls and reducing the cycle of malnutrition in rural India.
Why we care: In Madhya Pradesh, India, more than 70% of pregnant women suffer from iron and protein deficiencies. 30% of children are born with low birth weights, and up to 30% of children under five are acutely malnourished.
How we’re solving this: We’ll work with local women to educate, mobilize, and empower 400 communities to improve maternal health and decrease malnutrition in children.
Our program begins and ends with local communities. By engaging a force of 60 trained local women, we plan to reach 400 communities with education about local nutritious food and services to combat anemia, access to clinical care, and availability of public resources.
