MAHAN believes that long term solution to overcome malnutrition is to make tribal aware & encourage for farming. We started journey with Kitchen garden in our campus, then extended to back yards of tribal and now reached to the stage of Nutrition farms. All these are organic ones & hence low cost & sustainable. MAHAN team regularly guide & supervise the farms to ensure required results.

One more child life saved

Children dying due to pneumonia is common in Melghat. 'Anushka', a one & half years girl was suffering from severe pneumonia. MAHAN team convinced her family member to admit her in hospital. She was admitted in MAHAN Hospital on 18-9-2016 morning. After successful treatment, she went home back in normal condition. This way one more child was saved.
