Ongoing Partnership with Design Impact Bearing Fruit and Gaining Recognition

We are happy to announce that Deep Griha’s nutrition project has been independently nominated for an INDEX: Award 2013. Held every two years and patronised by HRH Crown Prince Federik of Denmark, this award recognises projects worldwide which have a significant life-improving impact. We hoped to make nutritious snacks more accessible to children living in the Tadiwala, Ramtekdi and Bibvewadi communities and Design Impact Fellow, Anisha Shankar kicked off this project by designing low-cost, nutritious (and delicious!) ladoos. Height and weight measurements were taken and the ladoos have been incorporated into our crèches food programme.
Our current DI Fellow Jaskeerat Bedi will be repeating these measurements at six months as well as supporting our women self-help groups as they take these recipes to the market. Success will see healthier children and new women entrepreneurs within the local community! Chosen by an international panel of designers, scholars and business people, Deep Griha will remain optimistic for the finalist announcement in June 2013 and look forward to the continuation of our work with Design Impact.
