Strengthening Bonds with the Rotary

TBR continues to be a partner of choice for the nutrition programs run by the different Rotary clubs in Mumbai. From April, the Rotary Club of Bombay will be supporting 500 undernourished children from the massive slum habitat situated in Dharavi. TBR will serve 90,000 breakfast meals to these children over the course of the year.

Poor nutrition in early childhood leads to lifelong consequences, which include lower cognitive development, increased chances of illnesses, and correspondingly increased medical expenses. We are working on different initiatives with an aim to increase awareness about healthy eating. Discussions are on with other Rotary clubs to support schools with breakfast and nutrition education. If your Rotary or Rotaract club would like to support a school this year, please get in touch with us!

Strengthening Communities in Gujarat

We are honoured to have the support of Yuva Pragati, USA and Sr. Nivedita Trust in Gujarat to provide supplementary nutrition to six ashramshalas (boarding schools) and nearly 900 children! The TBR team went to Rajkot and conducted a health camp. We were floored by the warmth and hospitality of the students, teachers, and the entire Sr. Nivedita team. It is so heartening to see, and hear stories from, the children and the positive impact the breakfasts have on their health and energy levels. They have also been very dutifully completing their nutrition-focused activity sheets, and the older children aim to become doctors, nurses, and police officials. We look forward to their progress!
