Reducing malnutrition in Dharavi

Project Highlights

  • SNEHA’s project has covered a staggering  17,000 kids in Mumbai’s urban slums
  • Malnutrition brought down by 20% in severely & acutely malnourished children from Oct 2012-Mar 2013
  • How SNEHA succeeds:
    • -Educate pregnant & lactating mothers on how to take care of themselves and their new-borns
      - Weigh the kids of the slum every month to identify malnourished children and admit them in their day care center for treatment
      -  SNEHA’s foot soldiers are none other than women from the slum who go door-to-door and carry out this intervention. These foot soldiers use smart phones to upload data in real time!
