PROGRAM 2- HEALTH AND NUTRITION
Today, every second tribal child is chronically undernourished. The loss of land and livelihood is a major cause of undernourishment. Financial and social insecurity aggravates the problem of premature marriages and early pregnancy. For centuries forest nourished them. In the last 40 years, they lost their forest, their habitat, livelihood, and social identity.
Silent Scream: Nutrition crisis among tribal women and children
H D Kote is one of the backward Taluks of Karnataka and is an abode of Tribal communities in good concentration. Tribal communities such as Jenukuruba, Soliga, yerava, bettakuruba, and Paniyara year were most affected by the displacement. This wrongful displacement of communities, uprooting of ancient and traditional livelihoods and mostly the snatching away of any authority on their own lives and they have been left behind in the dust of the storm.
Especially Jenukurubas lost their habitat and were evicted from the forest, their food availability became scarce. Malnutrition was high, among the women and children. The nutrition status of Tribal children is much lower since they are displaced from the forest areas for the construction of 3 dams and 2 National parks in this region. It has been found that natural forest resources play a significant role in determining the nutritional status of tribal children.
They are being pushed to migrate into newer environments where they aren’t able to cope up with new livelihoods. The tribal
communities’ vulnerability to food insecurity is
further aggravated since they are denied
access to Forest resources.
PROGRAM 3 - SPIRULINA NUTRITION SUPPLEMENT
Nisarga foundation with its inception wanted to eradicate this silent scream of malnutrition among the indigenous people. Nisarga started creating awareness about nutrition and how to prepare nutritious food out of the ingredients available for these tribal people on their own. Nisarga is also providing SPIRULINA nutrition-supplement to pregnant women, lactating mothers, and children below 5 years.
This project covers 50 beneficiaries per one batch, on the basis of physical and mental health of the children; their weight is taken, their alertness, activeness is assessed, mothers feedback is taken. Pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and children below the age of 5 are part of this SPIRULINA nutrition supplement project. The results were spectacular in terms of improvement of physical health and weight increase in children.
