Our Work in India
Vitamin Angels began work in India in 2010 with the goal of reaching underserved, nutritionally vulnerable populations — pregnant women, infants, and children — with evidence-based nutrition interventions (EBNIs).
We partner with multiple stakeholders to deliver these EBNI’s directly to at-risk communities, while providing technical assistance to ensure program quality, scale, and impact. Through this collaborative model, we seek to support initiatives that are complementary to and coordinated with existing national health services, focusing specifically on improving coverage at the last mile.
Over the last decade, we have worked with a network of over 1,800 program partners across India, including State and Union Territory governments, to reach over 20 million under-five children and women across the country.

Stories from the Field
KZSVS works with various tribal communities in and around Kandhamal in Odisha by engaging them in infrastructure projects. They reach reached over 15,000 children with vitamin A and deworming each year.
Seven-month-old Kaveri’s parents became increasingly concerned when they noticed that her corneas were becoming white. She was diagnosed with keratomalacia and was at risk of permanently damaging her corneas or even death. Three doses of vitamin A saved her life.
DIR works in the Nayagaon slum on the peripheries of Chandigarh, focusing on maternal and child health and early childhood education. It selects and trains health promoters from within the community, making the buy-in when introducing nutrition interventions smooth.
