Results

Nutrition Club (NC) is an initiative of BIID supported by INGENAES/USAID to foster engagement of youth communities such as JCI Dhaka North in nutrition domain. Food Plate was one of the most effective outcomes by SHIKHA project of USAID to reduce under- nutrition among pregnant women. To ensure sustainability of the NCs, BIID –JCI Dhaka North considers launching various activities towards resource mobilization and bundling with social benefits. As an effort on this, through extensive consultation and inputs from experts, BIID plans to introduce the concept of Nutrition Gift Box which will support the pregnant women of the rural communities as well as strengthen the Nutrition Club networks through JCI Dhaka North.


Recommendations

The JCI Mission
To provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.
The key words, Development opportunities, Empower young people, Positive change, we can see Nutrition Club is a wonderful project where most members of JCI Dhaka North have worked as a team, using their skills and knowledge in the project, learning to run a project by division of responsibilities, which will ensure them to be better leaders as well as team players. It is a great project through which JCI Dhaka North members have created positive impact in the society.

The JCI Vision
To be the leading global network of young active citizens.
Again if we take the key words, global network and young active citizens, we can see this project plans to ally with several development partners, who are working tirelessly to create a better, improved society working to fulfill the SDG Goals where Bangladesh hopes to lead as an example. And we, young active citizens of JCI Dhaka North hope to lead by making great strides through activities such as Nutrition Club which have not only taught to the target group of peopleto eat nutritious food, also helped the pupil’s family to lead a healthy life, thus building a healthy community. Therefore, through sustainable planning and implementation, we were there to make greater impact on society with the help of global network and practices.
