FMCH is a grassroots organization that focuses on bringing good health and nutrition intervention for women and children in vulnerable communities of Mumbai. Their programs encourage preventive health, balanced nutrition and child development practices in underprivileged communities. To this effect, they have adopted a holistic approach to embrace, educate and empower mothers and children in their social environment. The FMCH Training Center was launched with the objective of developing a cadre of professionals across Maharashtra and eventually the entire country, that is equipped with the right knowledge and best practices in order to impact a larger community. Urban Nutrition Initiative and Project Poshan are nutrition-specific interventions where FMCH works closely with the families and communities at large to promote good health, hygiene, and nutrition practices. The programs initiated by FMCH impact close to 927 pregnant and lactating mothers annually. They dream of a world where the potential of each child is not limited by poor early health or malnutrition

FMCH has been implementing the Urban Nutrition Initiative at Bhiwandi since 2015. This program ensures that women and children who fall into the category of ‘First 1000 Days’ are linked with their local ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) center, and able to access services. The services include regular growth monitoring, availability of trusted, accurate information and support from the very first day of detection of pregnancy till the child completes two years of age. Through this program, FMCH works closely with the ICDS system, strengthening the frontline workers towards better implementation of essential nutrition actions as defined by WHO. This includes early registration of pregnancy, complete antenatal care, exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, adequate and timely complementary feeding from 7 months, ORS treatment during diarrhea and Vitamin A & Iodine supplementation When you donate to this program, a needy pregnant woman will receive care through her pregnancy till her child is two years old.
