As a response to this  humanitarian crisis, Barefoot College took the initiative to distribute essentials for survival that these affected poor families and individuals needs at the very minimum to tide over the crisis and to remain hunger-free. Working in collaboration with the Rajasthan government, Barefoot College identified the genuinely needy and distributed survival kits to them to ensure hunger-free villages.

With the help of generous donations from donors like you our relief work from April 2020 to September 2020 reached out directly to more than 57,000 individual beneficiaries with 13,800 ready-to-eat food packets and 12,375 survival kits indirectly benefitting over 800,000 people in over 550 villages (and slums) across 11 districts of Rajasthan. In addition, we reached out to over 2800 children with over 325,000 packets of ‘Super 5’ nutritional supplement as part of our Children Nutrition program that would help strengthen the children’s immune system, especially during the pandemic. Barefoot College’s in-house whole foods nutritional supplement ‘Super 5’ is made from 5 locally sourced ingredients – Chickpea, groundnuts, sesame seeds, jaggery and wheat. It helps in reducing anaemia and fighting malnourishment, especially in children. Barefoot College’s Super5 production unit has the government’s FSSAI license.

 

The relief efforts of Barefoot College generated over 650 livelihoods for needy women. Barefoot College also supported Grain Banks in over 20 villages of the states of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh directly benefitting over 4000 beneficiaries. The survival kits mentioned above consists of the following essential items that would last for 15 days for a family of five:

 

 

 

 

In addition to the food relief, our survival kits also include personal protective kits that contain recommended reusable cloth face masks, sanitizers, soaps along with sanitary napkins for females to aid the needy individuals protect themselves  from potential harmful infections.

BAREFOOT COLLEGE TILONIA COVID-19 RESPONSE

First Wave of COVID-19 (Hunger-Relief)

Hunger-free villages:

Hunger relief efforts were desperately required due to the situation during the COVID-19 lockdown where the daily wage laborers, migrant workers, woman and child with no source of livelihood, living in remote villages and slums were left without any food and savings.
