Save the Children India has signed a SoI (Statement of Intent) with NITI Aayog on March 29th to contribute towards aspirational districts across three states (Bihar, Jharkhand, and Odisha) to improve indicators on early childhood care and education and health & nutrition. The SoI was signed by NITI Aayog’s DDG (Eval.) Rakesh Ranjan, and Save the Children’s CEO Bidisha Pillai in the presence of NITI Aayog’s CEO Shri Amitabh Kant.
The partnership is of two years. We believe that with this collaboration we will be able to reach the last mile in the selected aspirational districts with a focus on early and right start that children need for better outcomes on health and education indicators that are under monitoring at the District level.
