Goonj’s work with the tribals of Saura of Odisha

The tribals of Saura of Kantagaon village in Gajapati District of Odisha have seen their land turn into a wasteland due to recurring landslides due to cyclones and floods. Over the years as little work was left, these disasters also led people to migrate for survival, leading to further neglect of the land. Our teams working in Odisha mobilised and motivated the tribals to find a way to revive their land. People here decided to start by converting a small patch of land in the local school into a community kitchen garden! In just 4 days, more than 15 residents titled the land, sowed various vegetable seeds and even created a wooden fence, all on their own! This new kitchen garden will now be a source of fresh vegetables for the community as well as the students. We awarded the efforts of all participants with carefully made Goonj Family Kits!
