About Child In Need India UK

Child In Need India runs a unique deveopment program we call 'Creating Child friendly communities'. A child friendly community is one where mothers and young people can access the vital support they need to break free from intergenerational cycles of poverty. We focus our four keys areas of support which are nutrition, health, education and protection. Click on the images above to find out more

Our vision is of an India in which children are able to reach their full potential, regardless of their gender, caste, class or ethnicity. We work with local community groups and government bodies to create sustainable improvements in nutrition, access to healthcare and access to education. We empower women and children at key stages to speak up for their needs and we ensure those needs are met.

Our programmes are focused on using and improving existing services in the community. This means we can achieve great things with small investments! CINI was established in India in 1974 with CINI UK being registered in the UK in 1982 and is widely recognised as a leading authority on mother and child nutrition and healthcare in India. We have provided training on related issues to major charities such as UNICEF, CARE and CRY, as well as many smaller local NGOs.
