Gift Milk Program in coordination with NDDB Foundation for Nutrition (NFN)
In support of Gift Milk Programme of NDDB Foundation for Nutrition, IIL is providing additional nutritional supplementation to school children. Under this scheme, fortified flavoured milk is distributed to the students in Govt. schools adopted by IIL. Over 2500 school going children from Telangana and Tamil Nadu are benefitted through this activity.
Under Operation Gouraksha, IIL provides deworming and vaccination to cattle in nearly 115 goushalas with a population of 90000 destitute animals spreading across 12 states.
Project Calf Health & Nutrition Programme (CHANP)
Project CHANP is initiated by IIL with the aim of providing health and nutrition supplementation (mineral mixture fortified with vitamins) for a year to 500 selected female calves in the age group of 1 to 1.5 years in the goushalas.
Adoption of Government Schools
Most of the Government Schools in India have been neglected, ignored and poorly maintained. These factors discourage the children from joining the school, thereby depriving children of their Right to Education. Keeping this in view, IIL has adopted two Government Schools in the vicinity of its Karakapatla facility in Hyderabad, Telangana. IIL is providing infrastructure and basic facilities including support in the mid-day meal programme. As a result of IIL’s intervention, the strength of the children in the adopted schools have been doubled within a few years. The schools have also won awards at the district level.
