A child going hungry consistently, is one of the greatest tragedies of humankind.  The Global Hunger Index puts India at 101st rank of 116 countries

Hunger is more than just the absence of food or the sensation of an empty stomach. When a child lacks access to wholesome food and regularly goes hungry, it leads to long-term consequences like undernourishment and malnourishment. Lack of proper nutrition has severe impacts on their physical, emotional, and social development. A child who is often hungry feels resigned to being hungry, which breeds apathy toward their lack of opportunities. In short, hunger brings ill health and hopelessness altogether.

INDIAdonates’ partner ROSA aims to run a POSHAN (nutrition) kitchen in Chandauli District of Uttar Pradesh, near Varanasi. Every day around midday mobile vans will be distributing nutritious food prepared in the POSHAN kitchen to 3 to 6 years old children in 5 villages of Chakia development block in Chandauli district.

These villages are home to the marginalised and poorest of the poor, Musahar Community.

ROSA has been working with Musahar communities in various districts of eastern Uttar Pradesh for over two decades now. One of the most heart-breaking observations that ROSA has had over the years is the high rate of child mortality within the community.

Diwali is the festival of lights, the event itself commemorates the triumph of truth over evil. From lights, delicious sweets and gifts, the festival is all about spreading joy and wellbeing.

For Diwali, 2022 INDIAdonates’ goal is to raise funds for 9000 meals to feed 100 children for 3 months.

You can SHARE A MEAL for Rs. 50.
