Help 2000 tribal families fight hunger, Rajasthan

Dear Global Givers,

iPartner India initiated a campaign in Rajasthan to help tribal families fight hunger who have been deeply impacted by the pandemic due to loss of livelihood. Many resource-poor families faced starvation during the nationwide lockdown.

India has recently slipped to the 101st position in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) 2021 of 116 countries, from its 2020 position of 94th and is behind its neighbours Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.

Rajasthan already has a high prevalence of food insecurity and vulnerability amongst the tribal communities due to several factors such as the state being a drought-prone region, poor rural infrastructure, poverty and access to government schemes and services.

Through our ongoing project in Rajasthan, one of the selected activities amongst the tribal community was setting up a kitchen garden to help families with a means to achieve food security and thus fight the long-term effects of malnourishment. The aim is also to make families self-reliant and live a life of dignity.

We are happy to report that during the past months, 2,040 families have been selected and are being prepared to set up their kitchen gardens. We look forward to funding support to start training and distribution of seeds and other equipment. The selection criteria for beneficiaries of kitchen garden units are as follows:

1. Vulnerable families; resource-poor, women-headed households, small and marginal farmers and families belong to the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe.
2. Those families that have availability of space for kitchen gardens.
3. Availability of wastewater.

1,895 families who were previously supported with kitchen gardens have benefited highly from their respective units. They have access to regular intake of vegetables in their diets, this has also led to benefitting the families economically as well as nutritionally. The caloric intake has also increased due to the vegetables in their backyards that are now being incorporated in their meals twice a day. This has particularly been more beneficial in the post COVID recovery phase. These units have inspired others to also take this up.

Thank you, Global Givers, your support will ensure that these vulnerable families will have better health and nutrition.


With deep gratitude,
Team iPartner India
