India has the highest malnourished population in the world. In India, 46% of children under the age of three are malnourished and nearly half of infant deaths are related to malnutrition. In India 8 million people are blind and 63 million are visually impaired. Approximately 25% of global maternal deaths occur in India. It is evident that there are fundamental health issues that need to be urgently addressed, especially among rural communities where quality and accessibility of medical infrastructure is very limited
India has the largest number of illiterate people in the world - around 268 million, a staggering 35% who cannot read or write. Less than half of India's children between the age of 6 and 14 go to school. One in every four girls in rural India drops out of school before reaching the eighth standard.
A critical element in India’s Five Year Plan (2017-2022) is the generation of productive employment on an adequate scale.
The lack of safe and secure drinking water & toilets is a major hurdle in the country's growth. Waterborne diseases affect 37.7 million Indians annually.

In Rural India 86% people do not have access to a toilet.
