At Action Against Hunger, we have realized that a collaborative effort is the only way we can fulfill our commitment to eradicate the menace of malnutrition. We are keen on teaming up with organizations with a CSR strategy aligned with our goals.
Our approach is to engage people who feel passionate about dealing with this national crisis and join hands with us in working towards the eradication of malnutrition. We provide a wide range of employee engagement activities, ranging from visiting the beneficiaries to helping them with the establishment of kitchen garden to helping the children develop life skills. Details of these options are elaborated in sections below.
The objective of the employee engagement activities is to build a strong connection between those who are willing to contribute towards a social cause and those who are in need. These activities leave the employees feeling highly motivated and satisfied as they are able to see the difference they have made in the lives of others.
Interested employees in a group of 5-8 accompany our on field team to visit the projects in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan or Maharashtra.
They can meet the beneficiary families, interact with them to gain a better understanding of their problems and see the huge impact which they and their organisations can create.
Outpatient Treatment Centres have been set up in Mumbai and Palghar, Maharashtra, for the treatment of malnutrition. Children from 0-5 years of age are brought there for treatment and counselling sessions.
Interested employees can come in a group of 5-8 and paint the room walls to create a child friendly and conducive environment for children.
In addition to medical support a malnourished child needs emotional support and care for speedy recovery. Children who are engaged in simple games and activities are able to develop their sensory and motor skills at a faster rate. The employees will spend quality time with children under our treatment program; playing with them, having a story telling session, painting with them and thereby helping them develop their motor skills.
International fund raising events conducted in schools, where children run for a cause. They get sponsorship for each lap they take and the fund collected goes towards the treatment and prevention of malnutrition.
The event takes place in two phases as per the school’s convenience in the school premises. The first phase is a sensitization program which is followed by the run in the second phase.
The employees can engage the students by conducting an awareness-raising session which focuses on prevention of malnutrition and show them the video on our nutrition programs. Interested employees, in groups of 2, will be provided with a standard presentation from Action Against Hunger to address the school children. They are also free to use their creativity to design a quiz or ice breaker for engaging these students.
Employees in a group of 5-8, would need to dress up the venue with standard pictures, posters and banners of AAH to create an enthusiastic environment. The students are grouped based on their class and the numbers of laps taken by the students are marked.
