CHAPTER 01: INTRODUCTION
For the past 6 years I have had a strong concern for the health of young children in the chohla sahib area of India. This is the area in which I was born and raised. Through my studies at the University and my practice as a teacher and lecturer I have come to learn that it is possible to alleviate the problems of malnutrition through well designed and meaningfully focused educational programs. The challenge to the creation and operation of these programs, however, is twofold. First, there are not any teaching materials to assist mothers of young children in understanding how to improve nutritional intake and the effect that nutritional intake has on the health and welfare of their own children. And second, there is not any group of trained facilitators to assist in delivering this information in a timely and meaningful manner. Beitler (2005) suggested that the most powerful way to affect the health and welfare of a young child is through the improved understanding of the child's mother. This project will focus on the development of teaching materials and a system for helping mothers of young children learn appropriate food and nutrition information to help in the development of their children. And, it will occur in a local community location, close to where these mothers of young children are living.

According to an article of World Bank (siteresources.worldbank.org 2011), it has been mentioned that there is severe malnutrition predicted in the coming years in India.

Development of a healthcare centre which will be providing the basic healthcare services and information regarding proper health management of children and adolescents
Proper management of the project and its effective implementation for maintenance of healthcare in chohla sahib
Effective profit generation and maintenance of facilities offered at ...
