Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust provides free, home-cooked food to children attending any formal or informal educational institution. This is a major step taken by RNCT with an aim to eradicate hunger and malnourishment in kids.
The institutions may be schools providing formal education or NGOs providing informal education. These are unaided vernacular medium schools, Non-profit organizations, Night schools that do not receive any governmental aids like the Mid-day meal. These schools have students coming from lower income groups. Since getting a day’s meal is difficult these kids come to school hungry which leads to a lack of concentration in studies. Kids drop-out of schools to help in their family income. RNCT's 'Food For Education' program has had a significant impact on school dropout rates.
Rohit is 13 and is an ace batsman and terrific break dancer. He helps his mother and sister in collecting scrap. Due to a meager income, they find it difficult to have even one full meal a day. Rohit receives informal education from the Aasra Welfare Society at the education center.
He receives a meal during his school hours from RNCT’s 'Food For Education' Program. He is beaming with joy since he sometimes gets two meals a day of which one is definite at school. Rohit lives by his simple motto ‘Jaldi Khao, aaram se likho.’
