RCKP launched its signature campaign, Fight Childhood Obesity (FCO), in the year 2017-2018, to spread awareness about obesity and diseases associated with it. This year Mega Drawing Competition was launched on Children’s Day - 14th Nov, 2019. Children from Std Vth to XIth from all schools in Maharashtra were invited to draw, sketch and colour on different topics related to good health, nutrition, sports and healthy lifestyle.
The schools in Maharashtra are governed by different boards of education – CBSE, ICSE, IB, MSBSHSE and many more. Our first challenge was to reach out to all the schools. We approached various Government & Regulatory bodies, NGOs, and Private Institutions to help us get in touch with the schools.
RCKP received tremendous encouragement from Hon. Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi and Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare Dr. Harsh Vardhan in their mission as part of Fit India Movement and received letters of encouragements.
