In 2009, SWL undertook a survey in Sangam Vihar, talking to local children in order to identify their needs. What emerged was that as some of the children said:
“We normally only have a weak tea and 1 chapatti.”
Sunita had felt that it was important to have mid-day meal in CEDC and so together with the UCDVO Manager (Caroline O’ Connor) it was decided to implement it. The next step was that the center needed to renovate its kitchen. And so began the next phase of the program.
And after the Mid-day Meal was introduced, it wasn’t long before the number of children attending the CEDC doubled.
In the past the mid day meal was supported by a group of Finnish ladies headed by Sinikka Pallattenan, initiated by Ms. Liisa Piitulainen Numminen.
