Our Key Interventions

Kitchen Gardens: Promoting Community Health and Nutrition

As part of our commitment to community well-being, we've initiated the establishment of kitchen gardens within select households in the slums. This project serves as an educational platform, empowering families to create and maintain organic gardens. These gardens feature a thoughtfully curated mix of crops, encompassing indigenous vegetables, cereals, and root crops, all aimed at providing families with a well-rounded and nutritious diet. Our dedicated field facilitators have worked diligently to mobilize the community, encouraging them to embrace kitchen gardening as a means to enhance their nutrition and overall health.

Khamba Compost; Advancing Waste Recovery and Environmental Conservation

In our pursuit of minimizing waste and achieving zero waste disposal in the vicinity, we've introduced Khamba Compost systems into several households within the slums. Khamba Compost not only enhances waste recovery but also aligns with our enduring goal of curbing environmental degradation stemming from solid waste accumulation. Moreover, this initiative significantly contributes to raising hygiene standards within the community, fostering a cleaner and healthier environment for all.

Greening Urban Slums: Our Commitment to Reduce Pollution

Over the years, we've spearheaded tree plantation efforts within urban slums to combat pollution and promote eco-friendly practices. In fact, many of the trees you see in previously barren areas were planted by our dedicated team. This year, we've taken our green mission even further by partnering with the Centre for Environment Education (CEE) in the Green Ahmedabad Initiative, supported by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC). Through this collaboration, we've planted numerous trees and plants as part of our ongoing commitment to fostering a cleaner and greener community.
