One of Amrita SeRVe’s first goals is to deal with malnutrition, as this is a grim reality in India’s villages. This problem can be addressed by encouraging villagers to start kitchen gardens where they can grow vegetables for their own needs.

We are also training community health workers who are residents of the communities. Hospitals, doctors, and healthcare centres are usually distant from villages and, in some cases, completely inaccessible during certain times of the year like the monsoons.
