About the Organization
The Good Country Index tries to measure what each country on Earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. India ranks 81st in this index, and the glaring outlier is the sub-ranking of prosperity and equality, where we rank a low 116. Malnutrition is a highly visible illustration of this situation, in a country where so much food is consumed. India has an exceptionally high level of malnutrition (2 out of every 3 malnourished kids on the earth is an Indian, Nearly 50% of India’s kids below 5 years is malnourished). This partcular foundation firmly believes that the answer to these problems is Spirulina. Spirulina is globally accepted and used as a key tool against malnutrition by United Nations and Worls Health Organisation.
