Women and children of the area are ignorant about their status of health, food and nutrition. They do not know how to improve their malnutrition status. Every year many children under 5 years of ages has been suffering in malnutrition and many children are under growth, disabled and many has been died.
Through this programme we have been working to improve nutritional status of women and children involving them home based agricultural food production and consumption. Under this programme we have been implemented several projects as’
