As part of Save the Children’s centenary celebrations, ‘The Right Start’ National Summit was held on 30th September in New Delhi. The Chief Guest at the event was Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani, Hon’ble Union Minister of Women & Child Development and Textiles. This National Summit was a culmination of a month-long effort that engaged children from various states of India to create a strong discourse on providing the right start in their early years through better nutrition and early education.

The event saw political leaders, civil society organizations, and community members in a congregation, as children shared, with the Hon’ble Minister, their powerful stories of leading change. In her inaugural address, the Hon’ble Minister stated, “I am happy to note that Save the Children has initiated a nationwide campaign for children, demanding The Right Start.

The ‘The Right Start’ campaign is being rolled out in ten districts across five states of Bihar, Delhi, Jharkhand, Orissa, and Rajasthan over the next three years (2019-21) and aims to impact over a million children in these states.
