A social Transformation project
Sucharita is 17 years old and a student of class 10 from Mizoram. Her mother is a traditional Weaver and her father is a home based traditional healthcare practitioner. Besides studies, Sucharita is a hard working girl and she helps her mother in cooking and weaving. TGG Foundation encourages such responsible humans from all sections of the society. Whether small or big, every individual must learn to survive on their own and to be self reliant. Sucharita has made best use of the Covid period by making shawls. We appreciate such initiatives by students and are always willing to support them. She has been awarded a micro project under TGG’s livelihood mission to make handcrafted shawls. It is very important to retain the culture and heritage of any civilized nation. Tradition handicrafts are artisans are given due importance in our projects and special provisions have been made to accommodate them at the RHM Centers we develop.
The matter was brought to the notice of TGG Foundation by TUTPM, , Tuichawng, Mizoram and we have asked them to call a meeting in the presence of the village head and other prominent people of the village to take the support of the local community to help in getting the natural materials and construction. At our end the matter was presented to the ethics committee for approval, who have requested for a written confirmation from the village head. We have received an official confirmation letter from the President of Village Council on 26th April, requesting for support and authorising us to gain the necessary financial aid from the public to help them rebuilt their houses before the rain starts.
Nature has many healing properties and cure for almost every illness found on this planet. Such traditional knowledges were sidelined by chemical based medicines due to its swift action to treat various illness including the chronic ones in human body, but it comes with consequential effect which is more damaging. As an organisation promoting sustainable living, the priority goes to nature cure, at the same time we understand the ground realities hence we realise that no knowledge is less knowledges. TGG Foundation have been engaged in medicinal plant identification and planting them since the last few years. Our farm in Wayanad has nearly 48 different varieties of plants with medicinal properties that has been identified. We are now conducting a worldwide research in identification of medicinal plants and its health benefits, additionally we are exploring traditional healing practices & its benefits.
