When I was a [Calcutta Kids] beneficiary, I had no idea about proper child care... After participating in the Calcutta Kids initiative, I focused on breastfeeding and I saw [my daughter’s] growth. Now as a health worker, I am proud of myself, I have a lot of information, I am counseling others, guiding others on medicines and their doses and the importance of vaccines. I am happy to do that. I am valued in my family, I am helping to financially support my family. I believe that through the Calcutta Kids initiatives...my daughter’s intelligence level increased. She is shining in class and I would like to see her become a doctor.
