About the campaign:
- The Paalan 1000 National campaign aims to provide a better future and extra care to the children during the first 1000 days after birth.
- The Paalan 1000-Journey of the first 1000 days focuses on the physical and mental growth of children and their cognitive development of children. The Parenting App is a companion to provide information and practical advice to the parents or guardians.
- The birth of a child is a very sensitive topic to understand. The development of a baby starts with pregnancy and the woman carrying the baby has to take care of her health to give birth to a healthy baby.
- The baby is affected by the nutrition, health, and environment around the mother. After birth, mental and physical growth is a very important factor in one’s life. The future of the child depends on the quality of life he/she gets from the outside world.
