Mission Statement

Nourishing Schools Foundation is on a mission to enable young changemakers to take charge of their own nutrition and profess the same knowledge within their communities.

Description

The programme aims to develop young change makers aged between 9-14 years who can take charge of improving their own and their communities' nutrition. We provide toolkits to schools with games and activities for children between 4th and 9th grade. These activities help children learn about nutrition and how they can improve it e.g. by managing school gardens to access a diverse source of nutrients or building a hand washing station to preventing diarrhoea. Over two cycles of engaging with the toolkit, children solve problems in their schools and communities related to nutrition.

Over the years, we have partnered with various organisations to roll-out the Nourishing Schools programme in over 200 schools across India.
