Our Programs

India has the highest number of women who die from childbirth in the world. Our services reduce maternal morbidity and mortality and empower women to help their families thrive.

More than 2 million children in India under 5 years old die each year of preventable causes. We give young children the care they need to survive and grow normally.

adolescent girls

Adolescent girls in India lack the nutrition, health knowledge, and self-advocacy skills to flourish in adulthood. Our services set adolescent girls up for success.

Impact

Since Calcutta Kids began, the community where we work has seen a dramatic drop in mortality, morbidity, and malnutrition among pregnant women, mothers, and children.

Calcutta Kids Feature

  • We’re proud to share that Calcutta Kids will soon become a Covid-19 vaccination site. By operating a vaccination site independent of the government, we can help speed up the vaccination process and mitigate further devastation to our beneficiaries and the entire community. We are partnering with private health care centers that have the authorization and infrastructure to obtain and store Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines.
