  7. 7. 7TATA TRUSTS It takes a (bio)village… and a family… to raise a child
  8. 8. 8TATA TRUSTS • A farming system approach for nutrition to address the challenge of malnutrition in the country • The index of success: It works if young children are growing and healthy The principles
  9. 9. 9TATA TRUSTS The reality of early child growth in India Fed at home Supported at anganwadi
  10. 10. 10TATA TRUSTS The existing system for feeding young children • The <3y child is fed at home: that is when maximum growth faltering occurs • Supported by ‘take-home rations’ from the ICDS • But food and health should start with the family, and the village • How can the ICDS/anganwadi be supported by technology?
  11. 11. 11TATA TRUSTS What innovations sustain small holder farmer livelihood and nutrition & health security? • Investing in existing self-help groups for young child feeding • Creating local supply and demand – the food the village grows should have a demand in the family and in the village o Procurement of local foods by the ICDS at a local level o Procurement and sales for money • Decrease in the water footprint of what is grown – resilience in the face of drought • Storage of food • Value addition by simple processing o Innovative methods for raw food quality preservation • Creating awareness and outreach – money generated does not always go into better nutrition o Technology is not just engineering – social engineering is required
  12. 12. 12TATA TRUSTS Example: Working with the Govt of Karnataka • Evaluating the supply and demand for the THR for <3y children • Working with SHG’s to improve the THR • Evaluating local supply chains and local procurement for SHG’s: co- operative for raw rations and fresh vegetables • Ensuring diversity in cropping and intake: Setting up an intercropping database to assist farmers

  14. 14. 14TATA TRUSTS Example: Social Alpha • The Social Alpha Quest for Agritech Innovations has the aim of enabling an ecosystem for innovators and entrepreneurs to develop farmer-focused technology solutions. • The objective would be to empower small and marginal farmers towards increasing productivity and profitability.
  15. 15. 15TATA TRUSTS Example: The Tata Dairy Mission • This mission of the Tata Trusts works with small and marginal farmers to promote milk production as a sustainable livelihood option. • Under this program, Tata Trusts established the Dairy Health and Nutrition Initiative India Foundation (DHANII) as a not-for-profit company. The intent is to help milk producers earn more by enhancing their knowledge about milk production, breeding and animal health and nutrition. • DHANII has covered 485 villages in four states: Rajasthan, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat. Dairy farmers have seen an improvement in the quantity and quality of milk they sell, with the 13,000+ members contributing about 67,800 litres of milk every day.  Organising infertility management camps  Setting up quality testing centres for milk helps in quality assurance & they get fair price for their milk  Providing mineral mixtures with the animal feed has not only improved the quality of milk, but has also reduced the inter-calving period  artificial insemination, infertility management, breed improvement practices and other farm advisory services  Roshni Devi now sells 15-20 litres of milk a day, up from just 2 litres earlier. Her realisations from the MPC too have gone up substantially, from 25-30 per litre to 40-45 per litre.
  16. 16. 16TATA TRUSTS Example: Reviving the Green Revolution • The Sir Ratan Tata Trust and Navajbai Ratan Tata Trust launched the Reviving the Green Revolution (RGR) programme in 2002. • The programme encourages agricultural diversification by shifting to economically viable water saving crops. • It focuses on improving soil health, arresting environmental degradation through judicious use of agrochemicals, reducing cost of cultivation and making agriculture sustainable and economically viable. • The initiative covers 1,300 villages in 40 blocks of 9 districts in Punjab. • A regional centre of the RGR Cell was set up in Coimbatore in 2010 at the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) and covers approximately 10,000 households across Perambalur, Coimbatore, Erode, Salem, Dharmapuri and Thiruvannamalai districts. • Its work focusses on agriculture and allied livelihood building activities, specifically in rainfed and drought- prone areas, with a focus to increase profitability and productivity for small and marginal farmers.
  17. 17. 17TATA TRUSTS Example: Lakhpati Kisans (Multi cropping) • Collectives for Integrated Livelihood Initiatives (CInI), a nodal agency of the Trusts, initiated work in Janumpiri, Jharkhand through the introduction of improved cultivation practices of paddy for food security, black gram for nutrition and tomato as a commercial crop. • The farmers undertook cultivation of tomato, paddy and pulses during the kharif, and cabbage and garden pea in the rabi season. They also experimented by cultivating watermelon in summer. • The successes created a ripple effect, making neighbouring villages to join & form a part of the three vibrant community institutions (SHGs) through which the programme is being rolled out. The villagers are now annually earning an average of Rs65,000 from agriculture and Rs40,000 from lac. • In the many stories of Janumpiri, that of Kuwanri Hassa and her husband Dola Hassa stands out. They have earned Rs94,000 from agricultural activities and Rs35,000 from lac cultivation in a year and are now listed as ‘Lakhpati Kisans’. • Expressing her joy, Kuwanri says, “With the increased income, we have managed to purchase a two-wheeler and a portable pumpset for irrigation." Kuwanri and Dola are two of the change catalysts who have inspired others in their village.
