Foundation for Equal Citizenship(FFEC) is raising funds for its Early Childhood Development project, Buniyaad.
The first 1,000 days of a new born, beginning in the mother's womb are critical for physical and brain development. The health and nutrition of a mother is extremely important for this.
Support us in our mission to offer a healthier, happier and productive future for children from under privileged backgrounds and migrant parents. Help us meet the government's goal to reduce malnutrition and hence stunting, under-weight and wasting through the POSHAN programme.
32% children below 5 years are stunted, 22% underweight and 11% wasted in urban slums like Trilokpuri in Delhi, India.
Around 25% of Indian women of reproductive age suffer from under-nutrition and are likely to give birth to undernourished babies, leading to an inter-generational cycle of undernourishment.
A comprehensive approach to address this problem through:
-Weight and height monitoring during the first 1000 days of babies using a digital app
-Conducting educational training about best practices to mothers and pregnant women through videos and content produced by nutrition experts
-Fun activities and classes on how to incorporate nutritious food in their diets within their budget
-Include fathers in some these sessions and bring about sustainable behavioral changes
A big thank you to all those who have donated on this page.
