Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Child In Need Institute Jharkhand
  • About Organization:CINI was founded in 1974 in Kolkata (former Calcutta), West Bengal, India. In the early 70’s, we started treating malnourished and ill children, whose numbers were rampant in villages and slums areas, with an aim to contrast high child mortality. Field research backed by medical practice, progressively revealed a fundamental truth about childhood malnutrition. Much before being a health problem, malnutrition is a social issue. Rooted in a myriad of social, economic and cultural causes, child malnutrition cannot be solved via a mere clinical solution.
