About us

Dakshin Bastar Dantewada is one of the southernmost districts of Chhattisgarh state. For long, it has been one of the most severely affected LWE districts in the country. The hilly, forested terrain, low population density, low literacy rate and high percentage of tribal population make dissemination of Government schemes difficult in the district. The district has always had a high proportion of malnourished children in the age group of 0 - 6 years; with 38.78% malnourished children (Source: Vajan Tyohar 2017). Project Dumduma was launched in Dantewada in November 2018 to tackle this problem of malnutrition on a war footing. Working as a multi - stakeholder, multi - departmental initiative, Dumduma tracks every month heights, weights and MUAC of approximately 23,000 children registered in 1057 Anganwadi centres in the district. Such a facility for tracking and calculating granular level monthly malnutrition figures of all children is not available under any Government of India or State Government scheme. Such tracking helps make sector and Anganwadi tracking of interventions and outcomes possible, and aids in better policy making at the district level. Dumduma reports are made freely available to enable real time monitoring of nutritional activities in the district by the general populace, and make tackling the scourge of malnutrition a completely participatory process. Project Dumduma also tracks infrastructure availability at various Anganwadi kendras to enable necessary gap filling activities. Facilities for grievance registration and redressal are also available on this website.
