Project Ghar-Ghar Poshan : A sustainable nutrition intervention in urban slums.
SHODH’s nutrition project is working with households from urban slums & those having young children to improve quality of local diets and improve eating & feeding practices by increasing awareness and including low cost, high nutrition & impact solutions as part of the strategy.
Through Ghar Ghar Poshan, SHODH has been working on the issue of addressing nutritional deficiencies in young children. As the mothers are being trained on using nutritious ingredients, with a specific focus on millet many of them have now started to use these at home for their families and children.
One such case is of Ms. Sheetal who used Bajra (Pearl millet) and Moringa leaves in her child’s diet to address the issue of iron deficiency and underweight. In three months of using these ingredients regularly as part of her 4 year old child’s diet, the iron levels moved from 5.5 g/dl to 11 g/dl and weight has increased by 5 Kgs.
Project Akshay Krishi : A sustainable agriculture project)
SHODH’s project aims to support increased number of farmers from Kadiri in Ananthapuramu district of Andhra Pradesh to move and sustain to cultivation of millets which are climate smart crops and also contribute to the vision of sustainable and earth friendly agricultural practices. Growing millets also contributes to nutrition security for farming families in drought prone regions.
Ananthapuramu in Andhra Pradesh is the second most drought prone region in the country. Repeat crop failures due to environment factors lead to lack of appropriate livelihood opportunities and severe consequences for the community.
Currently SHODH is working with 1000+ small holding farmers in, Anantapuramu District of Andhra Pradesh, India, to promote sustainable and climate smart agriculture by promoting millets & creating a supportive ecosystem for the farmers to grow and add value to millets through proper post-harvest technologies.
