As per The Global Nutrition Report 2016 from World Bank (FSSAI) India ranks 97 among 118 nations on the Hunger Index. 184 Million Indians, including many children, are undernourished. Almost 48% of children under 5 years are stunted. 60% are Anaemic, and 70% consume less than 50% of the daily recommended micronutrients.
Micronutrient deficiency also known as hidden hunger, refers to inadequate intakes of crucial vitamins and minerals - such as Zinc, Vitamin A, and folate needed for the healthy mental and physical growth of children. The effects of it are long term, and they are stunting in children, weakened immune system, impaired cognitive function, and anemia & low energy levels.

We are currently engaged in this activity as an anonymous sponsor to limit the attention that it may generate from the concerned stakeholders.
