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 about healthy food choices, then there will be the scope for natural farming practices and these farming practices are cost effective, climate resilient and healthy for farmers and consumers. So, our healthy food choices can impact on economical and ecological condition of the farmers and that particular place respectively. Other end understanding the role of farmers in environmental conservation and nation building can help us to reduce the societal pressure on farmers.
Young farmers in the village advised 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.
