August 2019: In an interior village in Rangampet, Telangana, the children of MPUPS govt. school wanted to do something meaningful to ensure that no family sleeps empty stomach.
The group of children collaborated with ‘Family Gardens Association’ (a local club) and set up a community vegetable garden. The garden would function as a cooperative, where families in need could grow a portion of their vegetables there.
The children formed different groups that took care of different departments, such as family identification, vegetable choices, research and grain harvesting, irrigation system, and first aid.
Very recently, the beneficiaries (families), teachers and the group of children celebrated the first harvest of ‘their’ garden over a picnic party!
