FISTFUL OF NUTRITION

SIB is proud to say that Fistful of Nutrition is now a National (NASI) Project. It is a productive project that has been appreciated by all SI clubs. The club has to distribute jute bags with its logo on it to some schools. Everyday, the children who take the bags have to put a fistful of grains into it. After a month, they need to get the bags back to school. SIB members collect the bags, empty them into large containers and donate them to orphanages, remand homes and schools for the underprivileged. It has made SIB link donors with deserving donees. One-third of hungry people live in India, while 44% under-fives are underweight. SIB has worked towards achieving UN’s aim for Food Security and reach the Second Sustainable Development Goal in order to arrive at Zero Hunger. Building up social awareness, empathy and sensitivity among school children, especially the underprivileged, is an important goalpost.  SIB has also tried to engage the youth to check out for sustainable means to build up an inclusive world.
