A healthy child who has all his/her nutritional needs met is a happy child.
The Education on Wheels (EOW) project run by Sukarya with the support of Herbalife Nutrition Foundation provides nutrition mid-day meals to 200 children every day. This helps address nutritional requirement of marginalised children studying under the EOW Project in Delhi, operating across four slum locations with two fully equipped EOW buses.
The project caters to the educational and nutritional needs of children who are neglected and are living in slums. Hailing from poor, migrant families, their hygiene, diet, nutrition and health care needs are not a priority with parents, who are themselves struggling to make ends meet. The intervention helps prevent and control anemia and has shown remarkable results in overall development of children with respect to their physical, emotional and intellectual growth. Other positive changes include increase in daily attendance of classes, higher levels of motivation and improved energy and enthusiasm.
