Summary
TDV students proposed a project on the UN SDG 2: Zero Hunger, called ‘Self-reliance for the Persecuted’
The project aimed at helping the Rohingya refugees adopt self-sustenance in food security

The Design Village (TDV) students won the first prize at the 2022 edition of the Cumulus Green competition. Cumulus Green is an annual event hosted by Cumulus, wherein they invite students from all Cumulus member-institutes to design proposals that further the agenda of the United Nations Sustainable Goals (UN-SDGs). This year's theme was' Nurturing Our Planet' which focused on the UN SDG 2: Zero Hunger. The students of TDV submitted the project 'Self-reliance for the Persecuted', designed around the theme of zero hunger. The project covered how self-reliance can transform food systems and lead to ending food insecurity while improving nutrition intake, thus fostering a world which is equitable and environmentally prosperous. The participants, Yukti Anand, Manisha Bisht and Mayank Raj, under the guidance of their mentors Lena R Gupta and Mudita Pasari, proposed a hyper-local system for the Rohingya refugees residing in Delhi. The motive was to rehabilitate and restore the physical and emotional well-being of these people by rendering them self-reliant when it comes to food security. “The project focuses on an ever-growing population of refugees who lose everything when they flee their homeland. It is not just about eliminating hunger but also about nutrition and well-being of the mind and body. It is about resurrecting the simple daily ritual of relishing a familiar, frugal, self-earned meal with one's family. It is about restoring some sanity in their lives," said Lena Gupta on their proposed project.
