According to the World Bank report, Girl child education is a strategic development priority.

Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age, and enable better health care and education for their children, should they choose to become mothers.

All these factors combined can help lift households, communities, and nations out of poverty.”

The purpose of this consultation was to bring together delegates and professionals from NGOs /civil society / health institutions/government / UN agencies working with children, with the objective of ensuring quality and integrated ECCE programmes in Orissa.

The consultation was attended by Director, AIIMS, Senior government officials from state government, representatives of childfund international, Practical Action, and other others.
Outcome of the consultation: It was decided that a nutrition coalition led by TATA CSR Head comprising community-based NGOs in Orissa and 'THE WE FOUNDATION' will be formed with clear ToRs of each organization.
