Project Reach Each Child

Reach Each Child Project (earlier known as Nutrition India Program) is being implemented in Amravati, Nandurbar districts of Maharashtra and Rajsamand, Kumbalgarh in Rajasthan to demonstrate a community-centred model to address the challenge of malnutrition in a sustainable manner. The project has a definitive emphasis on the inclusive development of women and children, in addition to ensuring last-mile accessibility to public healthcare services.

It intervenes in the first 1000 days, utilising digital and artificial intelligence-based innovative modules, strengthening the health, hygiene and nutrition status of pregnant women and children.


It is targeting towards 40% reduction in the number of children under-5 who are stunted and reduce and maintain childhood wasting to less than 5%. The project, being implemented with the support of Reckitt by Plan India, works with the local communities to build up a workforce of Community Nutrition Workers (CNWs), who are rigorously trained by a team of public health experts, paediatricians, gynaecologists and community development specialists.
