Tamil Nadu: Ensuring food security

For the people of Guduvancheri, Tiruvallur district in Tamil Nadu, given the high price of paddy, the availability of freshwater in the paddy field of the region is crucial to ensure their livelihood, as well as the food security of the region. However, when the parched village pond clubbed with the presence of overgrown aquatic weeds in the irrigation canals hindered the flow of freshwater through their paddy fields, encouraged by Goonj, 103 villagers came towards the cleaning of a 400mx4m irrigation canal. They were happy to have found solutions to their issues apart from having their efforts being rewarded with Rahat Kits during the time of the lockdown.
