The project “Meals on Wheels” was started with the aim of providing a nutritious one-time meal to old people, women on the roadside, and children in market places, roads, and in the slums.
How It Works
• Meals are distributed on a daily basis in different cities of Goa, including Calangute, Panaji and Margao.
• Many of the above mentioned beneficiaries are migrants from other states who have come to Goa in search of better livelihood options, but end up staying in the slums or roadside. Some of these beneficiaries are sick and beg for alms
• The street children are encouraged to join the NGO’s Day Care Shelter programme and to get back to school. The members of the NGO help with the school requirements and also provide extra coaching for these children.
