Nutrition

Nutrition Programme

The comprehensive Nutrition programme of Ek Tara was introduced to the problem of poor nutrition in children, addressing classroom hunger and to check and reduce the dropout rate. Ek Tara runs a fully functional kitchen from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm six days a week. Either Breakfast or mid day snacks are served to all the students who spend less than 5 hours a day. Ek Tara follows a seasonal menu plan to give a variety to taste and preference. The total number of children enrolled under Hot Lunch is 430 and Breakfast/Mid day snacks is 800.

With the help of empanelled Nutritionist Ek Tara intervenes, understands and resolves nutritional problems in community households and implement check mechanism through participatory workshops with the parents. Annual Fete is organised by Ek Tara which is entirely planned and managed by the children.

The objective is to create an environment for our community partners to help them establish key strategic priorities and support sustainable development. This process helps achieve greater self sufficiency for present and future generations.

Working closely with people living in the municipal Wards 59, 65 & 66, Ek Tara develops and delivers programs and initiatives that respond to their needs and supports the communities. Focusing on local priorities, and bringing people together around key issues, providing information / training, encourage collaboration, support planning and implementation along with local authorities; Ek Tara delivers benefits to the local residents. It’s a triangular methodology based on stakeholder engagement, feedback and consultant recommendation.

To ensure the success of our intervention, a Community Mobilization Programme was becoming increasingly necessary. We take regular assessments of our beneficiaries by collecting household data and evaluating the worthiness of their sponsorship. Due to this Programme we are also able to share information with stakeholders for the advancement of our initiatives and get a better understanding of our impact.
