Many of them are undernourished due to lack of proper nutrition and inaccessible health facilities in their villages. It is more challenging for the pregnant mothers during this time of pandemic, with the fear of getting infected with COVID at the hospitals. Access to good nutrition and proper vitamins are essential. The goal of the project is to provide tribal women with healthy food that will help them to sustain the life of their unborn child and improve their well- being.

We invite your support and collaboration in our efforts
