UDAIPUR: Now, Vedanta Khushi has 12 Child Care Centres in the state of Tamil Nadu at Athimarapatti, Jahirhussain Nagar, Jamirviyas, Bharathi Nagar, Kumaran Nagar, Mattakadai, Puthukumaran Nagar, Rajiv Nagar, Savariarpuram, SBI Colony, Thalamuthu Nagar and Sami Nagar. Keeping the focus alive to strengthen the girl child presence in each centre, the Vedanta Khushi campaign has been able to get more than 50% girl child in the these centres. The total strength of children in these centres is 405, and out of these, 207 are girls, which is more than 50%.
India is a country with largest child population, largest child deaths, largest street children and largest malnourished children in the world. Seeing this state of the country, for once we felt apprehensive about building India for the future. It is sure, government, NGOs, corporates alone cannot bring this problem to a solution alone and common masses need to align and join on such mammoth national missions.
This is where Vedanta decided to spread the message of “Khushi” – Care for the Underprivileged Children. Awareness is the key for bringing change, as only due to awareness the knowledge gets shared.
The campaign Vedanta “Khushi” has ultimate objective to see no child in India remains malnourished and is deprived of primary health, education and nutrition.
Vedanta is moving ahead to further have more Child Care Centres in deep rural areas of India.
