Food and Nutritional Security
CWS actively promoted kitchen or nutrition gardens in the house’ backyard of women farmers in order
to address availability, accessibility of green vegetables and fruits to ensure household ‘Diet diversity
score&;. CWS undertakes campaigns wherein children in age group of 7 to 14 are encouraged to develop
nutrition garden both in their home and school practicing tri-colour food, personal hygiene as well as
environmental hygiene in their daily life. Food security is ensured through sustainable and improved
agricultural practices and crop diversity of at least 3 crops per household per year. These efforts are
further completed for increased income through market linkages, value addition to agriculture produce,
pisciculture and small ruminant rearing.
