Hunger is not just the scarcity of food but the absence of nutrition. People in slums cannot afford healthy food that causes several deficiencies. According to the United Nations, about 14% of our population (189.2 million) is undernourished.
Thus, Ummeed- Roshni Ki works with a holistic approach towards reducing hunger. Our focus is to solve the root causes rather than working on the periphery. We work on empowering people and establishing a steady source of income for them. We also motivate women to use their skills and serve as additional hands-of-income to their household. With these programs, we aim to provide long-term solutions to the cause. In addition to that, we conduct regular drives distributing ration and essentials to the disabled and old.
