Hi all,

According to the Global Nutrition report 2018, an article published in India Today on November 30 2018- India is home to 46.6 million stunted children.


Brain development of a child starts in mother’s womb and continues throughout infancy, up to 2 years of age and beyond. Appropriate intake of macro and micronutrients during intra-uterine life as well as first few years following birth are crucial for brain and other organ development. Undernutrition during this period can slow down the physical and mental development of the child, consequence of which is usually lifelong. Poor socio-economic conditions in developing countries like ours often result in undernutrition.


Integrated Children Development Services is the largest community based outreach program for holistic early child development. It is a crucial link between disadvantaged communities both the primary health care and education systems. ICDS scheme is a pioneer scheme taking care of the welfare of the Mother and post delivery the lactating mother and child. Nutrition and healthcare is provided in the ICDS center. Following this from the age of 2 years the center provides nutrition ,healthcare and education for the child up to 6 years.


All these good schemes unfortunately don't reach the end beneficiary. This is due to lack of awareness, and no training/documentation, processes and monitoring system. As an NGO like us, we can create good models to be replicated in the 2000 ICDS centers.


 I am raising funds to create such a Model (Integrated Children Development Services)ICDS center in a small village called Sivandiyapuram in Tirunelveli. The ICDS center is in a dilapidated condition mothers are scared to send the children there.

The funds will be used for

1. Basic civil work and some painting.

2.Toilet cleaning and fixing

3.Black board, black slate/paint for the 3 feet from ground. This will be used by the children to explore.

4.Play equipments like swings from trees, tires painted to play with etc

5.Herb/ vegetable garden. These will be used in the cooking for the children.

6.An additional teacher who is a graduate will be employed from the village to teach the children Tamil and English.

7.A tv to play educational videos.


The budget is calculated is 1,50,000. Kindly help me achieve this target.
