THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR EVERY GOVERNMENT IN ANY DEVELOPING COUNTRY IS TO MEET THE EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENT OF ITS CITIZEN AND TO IMPROVE THEIR INCOME LEVEL. SINCE IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT TO ALL, EFFORTS ARE TO BE TAKEN AT INDIVIDUAL LEVEL TO CREATE ONES OWN LIVELIHOOD. MOST OF THE TIME IT DOESN'T WORK WELL BECAUSE OF THE RISK INVOLVED, LOANS AND LIABILITIES, LACK OF KNOWLEDGE , EXPOSURE, ABILITY TO INNOVATE, LACK OF CONFIDENCE, FEAR OF FAILURE, SUPPORT FROM FAMILY, MENTORING, ETC. EVEN IF ONE CROSSES ALL THE HURDLES TO MOVE FORWARD AND CREATE AN INCOME GENERATING STREAMS IT SHOULD HAVE LESS IMPLICATION ON THE NATURE AND SHOULD BE SUSTAINABLE. THIS IS WHERE TGG FOUNDATION CAN SUPPORT THE FARMING COMMUNITIES WHO ARE COMMITTED TO FOLLOW ETHICAL PRACTICES.
IT HAS BEEN A REAL CHALLENGE FOR US TO CREATE LIVELIHOOD OPPORTUNITIES IN RURAL INDIA THROUGH THE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN IN THE FARMING COMMUNITY. AS WE ARE COMMITTED TO IMPROVE THE LIFE OF PEOPLE THROUGH ETHICAL PRACTICES, MENTORING WAS ONE MAJOR TASK FOR US TO CHANGE THE PERCEPTION OF THE FARMING COMMUNITY WHO HAVE BEEN A PART OF UNETHICAL AGRICULTURE PRACTICES AND FIRMLY BELIEVED THAT WITHOUT CHEMICAL APPLICATION FOOD CANNOT BE PRODUCED. OUR MODEL FARM IN WAYANAD (THE GREEN GARDENS) PLAYED A LEAD ROLE IN CHANGING THEIR PERCEPTION AND CONSTANT MENTORING HAVE CHANGED THEIR OUTLOOK, IT HAS ALSO CREATED A SENSE OF BELONGING FOR THEM TO THINK BEYOND THEIR SELFISH INTEREST AND CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS THE HEALTH OF OTHERS. NOW THE WOMEN CONSIDER FOOD AS A LIFE PROVIDER AND ADVOCATE AND PRACTICE CHEMICAL FREE LIFE .
THE PRODUCT THAT YOU FIND HERE ARE THE NET RESULT OF OUR 3 YEARS OF DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT TOWARDS OUR HEALTH. WE NOW LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR PARTICIPATION TO SUPPORT THESE WOMEN AND HANDHOLD THEM IN THEIR JOURNEY BY PURCHASING THE PRODUCTS THEY PRODUCE WITH CARE AND COMMITMENT. MAKING THIS INITIATIVE SUCCESSFUL WILL RESTORE PEOPLE'S FAITH IN THE FARMING COMMUNITY AND MORE AND MORE FARMERS WILL COME FORWARD AND FOLLOW ETHICAL PRACTICES IN AGRICULTURE AND WILL PRODUCE FOOD WITH CARE AND LOVE.
ALL THE PRODUCTS ARE FRESH AND NATURAL WITH MINIMUM PROCESSING AND ARE 100% CHEMICAL FREE.
Financial independence is the first step towards empowerment. The journey of our first self help group started with the participation of 3 women from the farming community in Wayanad. They started their livelihood creation with a stitching unit and a farm under organic conversion. On I st April 2017 the first self help group of women was constituted with a 5 member team registered with TGG Foundation and the group named as "Navajyothi (Kerala)". Subsequently necessary licenses and permissions were taken to start various new revenue generating activities. Navajyothi (Kerala) today produces an exclusive variety of Chemical Free, hand crafted food items (most of them are LIMITED EDITIONS due to the fact that it comes from one single garden which is organically certified) following the Ethical Standards set by TGG Foundation. The products manufactured/produced by them are given below. Click the right side logo to read more about Navajyothi (Kerala).
