Food for social change
To see a nation where people are proud to be a farmer for preserving the nature and feeding the nation.
Our mission is to use food as a medium for social change and make it universally accessible and affordable.
Through Food Literacy programs, 'tharunam' wants to empower Individuals to choose healthy food choices, then there will be scope for natural farming practices and these are cost effective, climate resilient and healthy for farmers and consumers as well. So, our healthy food choices can impact both economical and ecological condition of farmers and that place. Other end understanding the role of farmers in environmental conservation and nation building can help them to overcome societal pressure.
Young farmers in the village adviced me to stay away from farming and parents don’t like to see their children becoming farmers. I was born in a tribal village called Duginepally that is situated on the banks of the Godavari River. Unsustainable farming practices pulled Telangana farmers into debts that lead to suicides. I want to see a Telangana that will inspire the world with sustainable farming practices.
