Effective Strategies for Malnutrition Prevention

With the help of Anganwadi workers, Kalpaka detected 12 malnourished children in one of the 24 villages under Kyathanahalli Public Health Center. Then, on Dec 1, 2021, Kalpaka hosted a gathering for all of those children’s parents for a productive and informative discussion about the children’s health. All children were of age five or below.

Kalpaka provided the tokens to the parents of these 12 children in this event. We aim to monitor the health of these 12 children for the next 3-6 months, along with developing a stable income source for their low-income families. Gradually, when we see our project succeeding, we want to expand to the other villages under the Kyathanahalli PHC. And later, to the rest of Mandya district.

This was Kalpaka’s first event in our mission to end child malnutrition in rural India, one village at a time. You can support us with your donations – one month of milk and eggs for one child costing only Rs. 500.
