Suhani studies in the Dnyan Sadhana School. She lives in a nearby slum. Her parents work in unstable jobs with no regular income.She did not get nutritious meals at home. Even though she was bright in studies, she wasn't regular in school. As there was not enough food at home, she was very weak, malnourished and suffered from lack of nutrition.This affected her health. She wasn't regular in School. Her attendance in class was just 50%. Studying hungry was impossible.Suhani's life changed when Dharma Bharathi Mission started their midday meal program in the Dnyan Sadhana School. She got a warm and nutritious meal at school for free every day. This gave him something to look forward to as well as the nutrition he needed to survive. The food is served hot. They try to serve different items each day on the menu to make it interesting for the children. The children are also served a sweet in the meal once a week.The midday meal program was started to provide nutrition to the kids so that she and other kids like her have at least one nutritious meal a day. Suhani's attendance in the school has now increased. Her grasping power improved and there is considerable improvement in her attention span as well. **You can also help poor students like Suhani get access to one nutritious meal every school day.

About The Program

Navasrushti runs a program to provide mid-day meals to children in schools not supported by the government.Donations to this program will contribute to a fund which will cover the cost of mid-day meals for the children and administrative expenses of the program.In the impoverished areas where there are no government-aided schools, children tend to drop out because of hunger. They then end up as child laborers involved in jobs like domestic help, washing taxis, etc to help their families with additional income.This program works with schools which provide education to children from very low-income groups. The children come from families who have been generationally living in slums. They have below poverty line income. Their parents are uneducated. They generally hold jobs like auto drivers, daily wage laborers, zari workers, rag pickers, housemaids, sweepers, car cleaners, etc. Most of them don't have stable jobs or any other support. The children are very prone to dropping out of school. The midday meal is the most significant incentive to retain the children in school, and it also encourages them to continue their education. It prevents dropouts. Needy students are identified by the Dharma Bharathi Mission staff and the school principal and enrolled in the program. The resources are obtained by the donations received. Approved vendors provide the cooked meals. The list of children is prepared at the start of the year. With a proper meal every day, the attention and concentration of the children increases. It also helps in preventing malnutrition and anemia. The impact of the nutrition for the children are is tracked by taking into account the height, weight, and Body Mass Index (BMI) both at the beginning and the end of the school year.When you donate to this program, you help poor children get access to one nutritious meal every school day and prevent dropping out from school.


About The NGO

Navasrushti International Trust (Dharma Bharathi Mission) was founded to promote national regeneration of India and help to usher in a civilization of love and a culture of peace in the world based on the eternal moral and spiritual values common to all religions. NIT launched its organised social initiative, Dharma Bharathi Mission (DBM), on 30th January 2008 with the vision to create a better India. Earlier NIT was focused on creating awareness around Responsible Citizenship and the need for every Indian to do his/her bit for the society. However, there was a demand from interested citizens to start social activities where they could meaningfully participate and contribute. Accordingly DBM was launched under NIT to undertake these social and community based initiatives. Since the goal of NIT was to achieve the remaining three freedoms, economic, social and moral, through a hunger-free, caste-free and corruption free India, DBM took up Hunger-free-India as its first go. Theyadopted the 3E approach to tackle the same - education, Employment and Empowerment. All activities and projects are geared towards that goal. NIT is headed by Mr. Paramjeet Singh. He works in the Indian Revenue Service but being passionate about social service and 'giving', he has offered his honorary services to NIT as its Managing Trustee. His personal motto of - "Give Till it Hurts" has been adopted by NIT(DBM). He is an efficient and inspiring Team Leader under whose able leadership NIT has established itself credibly in the social field.
