Nehru Children Cultural Association has organised a visit by students to M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation on 25th September 2015. About 25 students are participating in this programme. As part of the visit, they will be interacting with the Agricultural Scientist Professor M. S. Swaminathan.
The M. S. Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) was established in 1988 as a not-for-profit trust. MSSRF was envisioned and founded by Professor M. S. Swaminathan with proceeds from the First World Food Prize that he received in 1987. The Foundation aims to accelerate use of modern science for agricultural and rural development for development and dissemination of technology to improve lives and livelihoods of tribal and rural communities. MSSRF follows a pro-poor, pro-women and pro-nature approach and applies appropriate science and technology options to address practical problems faced by rural populations in agriculture, food and nutrition.
