DakshiniPrayash acknowledges that good health is the foundation stone of each and every human effort for individual and societal change;malnourishment in the children of the local community being the single biggest reason of the poor quality of life and their inability to pursue appropriate vocations and lead a self-reliant life.
"To keep the body in good health is a duty...otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear." - Gautama Buddha
DakshiniPrayash has laid the foundation of good health amongst children by providing a nutritious and palatable midday meals to students attending the Society's school. In addition to a weekly health clinic, a number of health initiatives are conducted on a regular basis with the fulsome assistance of programme sponsors and partner-NGOs; some instances being health checkup camps, eyeglass distribution and cataract IOL implant operations. The health camps are free of charge offer unrestricted access for residents of the local community. Local women residents are also free to consult with a lady doctor every day in the school premises.
