For many years now Goonj has been mobilising village communities to build kitchen gardens in their schools. In Lohardaga village in Jharkhand, our team recently motivated 70 students and teachers of a local school to build a kitchen garden in their premises. The students also enthusiastically took part in fun sports activities! All kids were rewarded with Goonj School to School kits for their participation.
We motivate and mobilise the entire community – students, teachers, parents and the entire village to work on making kitchen gardens, school playgrounds etc in small rural schools and aanganwadis under our School to School initiative. It has added nutrition to the mid day meal in hundreds of schools and anganwadis and built a better bonding among all stakeholders..
