On 5th of May, Gram Swaraj Abhijyan Meet was organised in many Blocks of Rayagada District and Living Farms was one of the NGOs invited for this meet. This was a platform where many SHG groups, government officials, Panchayat Raj Members and people attended the meet where different schemes initiated and provided by the government were discussed and celebrated.

Living Farms owing to its collaboration with Odisha Livelihood Mission for the FAARM project reaching out to other blocks was invited as well. Within our program we have been focusing on the ICDS scheme to make sure pregnant women, lactating mother, and adolescent girls get their nutritional entitlements regularly along with eating safe and diverse foods from the nutrition garden and nutri-sensitive farms. All of our Block Co-ordinators in the 8 blocks were invited to this Meet and one of our Block Co-ordinators from Muniguda Block- Pramila Sahu was invited to address the people and speak about our project. We are proud of our staff for having created a visible impact and hope that the plan to reach more blocks in the State along with Odisha Livelihood Mission is a success.
