Hindustan Unilever Limited

World Food Programme: Project Laser Beam
For almost one billion people today — one out of every seven on the planet — hunger is a battle that is being lost, and children are among the most affected.
Combating hunger

Malnutrition afflicts millions of children worldwide, robbing them of a bright future. When a child chronically lacks the right nutrition, mental and physical damage is irreversible.
This lack of nutrition makes children more susceptible to illness throughout their life and less productive members of society.
Individuals lose more than 10% of lifetime earnings, and many countries lose at least 2-3% of their GDP due to child malnutrition.
This preventable situation is getting worse. The call to action is clear: Investing in nutrition is an investment in the next generation.
Eradicating poverty & hunger

The Unilever Foundation is partnering with the World Food Programme (WFP) in Project Laser Beam, a public-private partnership that aims to create a scalable, replicable and sustainable model to improve nutrition, health, and livelihoods focusing on Bangladesh and Indonesia.
WFP, Unilever and many other partners, such as Kraft Foods, DSM and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) have made a joint commitment through to 2015 to help to deliver on the first Millennium Development Goal – “eradicating poverty and hunger” – by encompassing a holistic approach to combat child malnutrition.
Together we will

Improve the nutrition of up to 500,000 children.
Provide access to clean drinking water, sanitation and basic healthcare to whole communities.
Reach more than one million people with life changing hygiene training in schools and amongst communities.
Enhance the livelihoods of 3,000 women in ultra poor households.
We are determined to make a sustainable difference in the lives of more than two million people in two of the poorest countries in the world.
We believe that Project Laser Beam will serve as a model for public-private partnerships that will be able to be replicated in other countries around the world to combat malnutrition.

ISKCON Food Relief Foundation

In 1863, Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach (a German philosopher) wrote “Man is what he eats”. He was stating that the food one eats has a bearing on one’s state of mind and health. At ISKCON Food Relief Foundation too, we believe that the intake of food not only grants Man his material survival, but also offers him values of culture and of partaking in the divine, for which he strives in his innermost self. In our culture too, food and feeding has always been an inherent part. In the village life of ancient India, the householders, or grhasthas, saw themselves as food providers for all living beings, including animals. Not even a rat or a snake would go without food during the pinnacle of Vedic civilization in India. The Vedas enunciated the duty of a householder as Bhunjate te tv agham papa ye pacanti. Meaning those who are cooking for themselves, they are simply eating sinful things….Bhunjate te tv agham papa ye pacanty atma-karanat… conveys that hospitality is one of the duties of the householder.

The genesis of ISKCON Food Relief Foundation’s purpose dates back to 1974, when Srila Prabhupada was looking out from his room at an ISKCON temple in Mayapura (West Bengal). He noticed a group of village children fighting with street dogs over scraps of food. Shocked and saddened by what he saw, Srila Prabhupada turned to his disciples and said, “No one within a ten mile radius of our temples should go hungry”. When the Government of India launched a strategic program in 1994 called the Midday Meal Scheme to fight two of the most pressing problems of India – hunger and illiteracy, ISKCON Food Relief Foundation saw a great opportunity for providing children with the right nutrition to support their education. The Midday Meal Project is being implemented by ISKCON Food Relief Foundation under the name of ‘annamrita’ meaning food as pure as nectar.

The first thing that comes to mind, when you think of nutritious food, is what a mother serves her child, and that’s what annamrita stands for. We strive to serve food to children, with the same love and devotion that otherwise their mother would have provided. Imbued with a spiritual ambience in our hi-tech kitchens, the khichdi prepared satisfies and nourishes, not just on the physical level but also on a spiritual level. The only meal that is truly satiating is the one that feeds the stomach, mind and soul alike. At annamrita, we provide the child that important one meal of the day which not only feeds his stomach, but also feeds his soul with the zeal to achieve his full potential.

A majority of the population in India is still unable to get at least one complete square meal for the day, only because they are stuck in the vicious circle of poverty and illiteracy. Annamrita has resolved to liberate the underprivileged from this vicious cycle by serving children with sanctified and nutritious food. We aim to provide the children with satvik ahaar that helps them with the right nutrition in their formative years. We wish to scale up the program to serve over 13, 00,000 children per day by 2013. We believe success on that scale will offer a model of replication by other developmental organizations and State Governments across India. To many, annamrita is the sole source to their only complete meal that they have access to during the entire day. This has produced dramatic results in terms of increased enrolment at schools, retained attendance levels, reduced drop out rates and attention spans. We sincerely seek your support in reaching out the annamrita program to more and more children.

Hunger And Eduation
In the long run, education is the key to solving the problem of hunger. It empowers an individual to work with society to fulfill one’s needs and aspirations. Hence few educated people go hungry. Yet, hunger is a stumbling block for education for poor children and locks them into a vicious cycle: hunger and poverty obstructs education as they are forced to drop out of school and take up m

We are ready to start eye care globally

Having started on India in 1999 gives us at least 15 years advantage of knowing the issue reasonably well. Having an Ashoka fellowship to the founder in 2004 is a great advantage as well.

We are keen to share what each one of you in eye care - whether government or an NGOs or a funding agency or a company or a philanthropists or media or just anyone in your country is doing for eye care or sub issue of eye care.

We will be talking to at least 3000 people across 193 countries from February 2014 to April 2014 to share various aspects of each issue / sub issue. ( We are writing to at least 100 000 people )
