Meal Program Ensures Continued Education
Meals Help Children Learn and Grow Better
Rise Against Hunger India has been working with Need Base India, a Bangalore based organization that provides holistic support to children who are facing challenging situations. Need Base India operates separate residential homes for girls and boys within Government School premises. For over 3 years, over 250 children are receiving meals from Rise Against Hunger India regularly. Many of these children, when taken into the project, are either school drop outs or have never been to school. With regular support, counseling and motivation – and with nutritious meals supported by Rise Against Hunger India – all children are enrolled back into mainstream education system. Children get healthy and nutritious meals everyday. Rise Against Hunger India meals are big hit among the children and the food committee constituted by children decides the menu on a weekly basis to add different flavor, vegetables to the main ingredients. Children are growing into caring, confident and resilient human beings. Children excel in computers, music, dance, sports and other areas as well.
