The Global Hunger Index (2020) is calculated on the basis of total undernourishment of the population, child stunting, wasting and child mortality and places India at the 94th spot among 107 countries.
The extended Covid19 pandemic has accelerated the hardships faced by our tribal children exposing them to increased malnourishment. Realizing the need for sustainable nutrition, Kindness Unlimited embarked on Project Plant Kindness to grow 1 lakh fruit trees in Maharashtra.
Phase 1 began in August ' 21 where we planted 40,000 fruit trees ( Guava, Custard Apple, Pomegranate, Lime and Gooseberry ) in 41 villages, supporting 3790 + households in Raigad and Palghar district of Maharashtra.
3000+ families eagerly awaited the trucks filled with fruit tree saplings, they said it gives them hope that more children would not lose their lives due to hunger and under nourishment and would also open up an alternative livelihood opportunity.
We have been working in the region through Project Nashta which is providing Nachni/Ragi a locally grown and sourced nutritional supplement to 516 malnourished children and understand the on ground challenges and the importance of community involvement .
Our Promise: The fruit trees are being nurtured by the villagers and planted in close proximity to their homes thus ensuring higher survival rates to the trees. Our on ground team is fully involved in monitoring the project.
We would like to expand this to Phase 2 : To 40 + villages in Raigad and Palghar and help plant the next 40,000 fruit trees.
Your donation will help improve sustainability to a marginalized group who wholeheartedly commits to caring for the trees. It is this sense of ownership and responsibility which is the core of Project Plant Kindness
