Sankhlal’s daughter, Priya, was quite irritable and had become weak, with the bones showing. During one of our routine surveys, she was found to be malnourished. Probing further, it became apparent that the family’s diets was not wholesome and they were missing some key micro – nutrients in their diet. On our recommendation, Sankhlal dug a vegetable garden in his backyard and saved some money to install a water pump for it. Six months after planting the garden, his daughter has now recovered completely and is healthy.
Apart from helping them grow fresh veggies, we also conduct cooking demonstrations to explain how best to prepare meals with them while retaining the flavor and nutrition.
With your generous support, we plan to reach out to 120 families in Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
