At FMCH we focus on encouraging preventative health, balanced nutrition and child developmental practices in underprivileged communities. To achieve this we adopt a holistic approach by embracing and empowering mothers and children in their social environment.
Started by Leena Godiwala after volunteering at FMCH Indonesia while posted there. Originally the focus was a broader group of services focused on a smaller area but in 2010 the emphasis shifted to a more focused group of services that could reach more beneficiaries, was more sustainable and could be replicated.
Piya holds a Masters Degree in Social Work, with over 14 years’ experience in the non-profit space in India. Piya has been working with FMCH since the year 2011, playing a crucial role in the organization's growth. Piya is the spearhead for FMCH India, responsible for successful functioning of the organization.

 The Twins from Phule Nagar
Roshan and Rohan Jaiswal are twins form our Phule Nagar clinic. Roshan’s birth weight was 1.30 kg and Rohan’s birth weight was 1.40 kg, they were born at home. Their mother brought them to the FMCH 1000 Days’ clinic when they were just 2 days old since she was worried about their weight and growth. The mother was counseled regarding effective breast-feeding by the FMCH nurse and the FMCH nutritionist. After just one round of counseling, the weight of the children showed improvement. Through regular follow-ups and counseling we made sure that the mother was exclusively breast-feeding the children and did not uses any pre – lacteals feeds or formulas. Now, at the age of 2 months, their weight has improved significantly, where Roshan weighs 4.29 kg and Rohan weighs 3.9 1kg. Both the children are now under the ‘Well Child’ category as per WHO growth reference standards
