Visit to Valaramkunnu, Kerala, Live-in-Labs Project
Amrita School of Business, Coimbatore (ASBC), students spent time in rural communities as part of their Live-in-LabsTM course curricula. The students spent time in Valaramkunnu, an Amrita SeRVe village in Kerala.
Vallaramkunnu is a tribal village located at Wayanad, Kerala where three tribal colonies were adopted by Amma namely Paniya colony, Kattupara nayakar colony, Kuruchur colony comprising of 75 families. Our LILA started with meeting the villagers along with Village agriculture officer, Mr. Mamooty who gave a detailed talk about organic farming, ill effects of using fertilizers on plants and how to use organic fertilizers/manure to create an awareness on healthy agricultural farming. Our coordinator, Mr Hari led us up the hill which was an hours trek up the hill to the colonies.
