Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission

The kitchen garden project, supported by Sewa Canada, has completed a year of implementation. The project was started with an objective of improving the nutritional intake of 100 tribal families in four tribal villages. In the last one year, as part of the project, vegetable seeds, planting materials, green nets for fencing and bio-fertilizers were distributed. Few agri-implements were also distributed to the beneficiaries with the support of Kerala Agricultural University. The farmers have started to harvest the vegetables and are using it for their own consumption. Majority of them have also prepared seeds (from harvested vegetables) for cultivating in the second year.
