The project reaches out to people aged 0-35 years by carrying out age-appropriate interventions on health, education, and livelihood, focused on the girl child and aimed at systemic and lasting change. A child’s development starts in the womb, however, when mothers are young, unhealthy, and lack the awareness about breastfeeding, it results in weak children. Even when they grow up, they do not have access to learning platforms as most Anganwadi centres are dilapidated and leak even after a short spell of rain. Many children remain out of school and do not have enough funds to afford a private school.
CARE India implements Kanya Sampurna Project (KSP) in partnership with Titan Company Limited in the Cuddalore district, Tamil Nadu and reaches out to 27,856 people in 40 of 160 villages in Kattumannarkoil and Keerapalayam blocks to address the root causes of these challenges.
