Story

Our Story

NNEdPro's Mobile Teaching Kitchen Initiative was conceptualized in 2017 and launched in 2018 in 2 underserved communities in Kolkata, RG Car and Chetla. Following unprecedented success in 3 years, NNEdPro partnered with Calcutta Rescue in 2021 to maximise the impact and work of MTK in 6 other communities (Bagbazar subdivided into Bagbazar-I and Bagbazar-II, Nimtala, Mechua, Local Bustee, Jyotinagar, and Lal Mandir).

This initiative is a multifaceted, innovative intervention to address malnutrition and diet-related challenges. It tackles malnutrition by empowering communities and sharing knowledge and skills through nutrition education. The Mobile Teaching Kitchen aims to enhance the health and well-being of women, children, and families across communities, especially those working within marginalized and underserved communities.

Our Mission

The Mobile Teaching Kitchen strives to provide nutrition education to local "Champions" and, potentially, microenterprise systems, allowing participants to set up their own small businesses. The MTK travels to different parts of the cities and connects with the local community, creating awareness about healthy nutrition practices and passing on necessary nutrition education and skills required to make their daily meals more nutritious and prevent nutrition-related diseases.

Why We Need Your Help

We need your support to continue our work towards a healthier, empowered, and sustainable future for all. Supporting the Mobile Teaching Kitchen’s initiative means supporting a project that is tackling malnutrition and enabling Champions to continue their wonderful work improving nutrition awareness and education while generating income for themselves.
