About Child In Need India UK
CINI UK works with CINI's programme staff in India to try and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty in deprived Indian communities. Our vision is of an India in which children are able to reach their full potential, regardless of their gender, caste, class or ethnicity.
To bring this about, we work with local community groups and government bodies to create sustainable improvements in nutrition, access to healthcare and access to education. In particular we empower women and children at key stages: childhood, adolescence and pregnancy, with programmes designed to help them lay the foundations for a happy healthy life. Our programmes are carried out by local staff and volunteers which keeps costs low.
CINI was established in India in 1974 with CINI UK being registered in the UK in 1982 and is widely recognised as a leading authority on mother and child nutrition and healthcare in India. We have provided training on related issues to major charities such as UNICEF, CARE and CRY, as well as many smaller local NGOs.
