With an aim to alleviate hunger and encourage to enrol to mainstream education, this project assists underprivileged children to help their overall development. The Rationale Despite a sturdy mid day meal programme in 83% of government and aided schools in Mumbai city and 95.1% in its suburbs, the city has witnessed an alarmingly high prevalence of malnutrition.

One in six, or 60% of Mumbai’s population lives in slums, and some 10 million live under threat of displacement and unemployment. Amidst the towering skylines of urban Mumbai, informal settlements in slums paint a contrasting and ugly reality, as these communities reel under the bane of rampant malnutrition. Malnutrition has increased four-fold among children in Mumbai’s municipal schools, from 8% in 2013-14 to 34% in
2015-16, as a detailed report suggests. For the want of livelihoods, they are forced to undermine hygiene and nutrition for their children unattended at homeless environment. Such malnutrition tends to reduce the IQ, thus leading to deficiency of a child’s cognitive capacities, while adversely impacting the economy. With an aim to alleviate hunger and encourage to enrol to mainstream education, this project assists underprivileged children to help their overall development.
Children from slum neighbourhoods gain nutritional access with lunch on daily basis with periodic health interventions and hygiene education. In an endeavour to provide good nutrition, educate and empower the underprivileged children,Bhavyata Foundation started providing daily lunch meals to the undernourished children of two Schools of Navjeevan Prathamik Vidyamandir situated at Thane from the Month of July 2018. There are 110 children in these 2 Schools of Thane.Parents of these children, who study in the school are daily wage earners, house helpers,construction workers, who reside in nearby Maijiwada slum neighbourhood.
