The power of education and community involvement


The Millets Festival

We believe in the power of education and community involvement to make positive environmental changes, and what better way to do that than by honouring the humble yet extraordinary millets!

During this festival, our students delved into the environmental significance of millets, learning about their sustainable cultivation practices and resilience to climate change.

But that’s not all! They also explored the incredible nutritional benefits of millet, discovering how it contributes to our health and well-being.
One of the event’s highlights was the recipe exchange, where students shared their favourite millet-based dishes, from savoury to sweet, showcasing the versatility and deliciousness of these ancient grains.

And what better way to wrap up the festivity than with a delightful potluck, where everyone brought a dish to share, creating a colourful and flavorful spread celebrating the diversity of millets and our community.

Millet, a sustainable crop

Let’s continue to spread awareness, appreciation, and enjoyment of millets for a healthier planet and a brighter future.
