Adolescent Health & Nutrition

According to Rapid Survey Report of 2013,53% of adolescent girls (15 – 18 years) are under weight. This affects their cognitive development and progress into healthy individuals. It is also a matter of concern that less than 50% girls complete schooling. While 3.88% girls drop out at primary school, figures increase to 16.88% at secondary level, distressing their opportunity for independence and empowerment. And yet, there aren’t many schemes to benefit this group of young people. GGF aims create awareness on nutrition, hygiene and importance of education among school going girls from socially under-privileged sections.
