Statement on Impact India Foundation (IFF) Initiatives

I am impressed to see the evolution of the Community Health Initiative over the years. This is my third visit to the project. I look forward to seeing the final outcomes IIF achieves in the interventions to do with Kitchen Gardens and Nutrition.  If successful, IIF’s strategies and  outcomes can be shared elsewhere across the world……. With regard to the Village Health Committee meetings and Non School Going Health & Nutrition Education sessions it is interesting to see that the community comes to your sessions and listens attentively to you….and then applies to its own life what you teach. There are so many small activities that have a lot of impact…… IIF is challenging social norms like early marriage. The facts that girls keep coming to IIF’s meetings shows that their parents support IIF’s message and are ready for change.
