Building upon the capacity and providing these people with basic crop cultivation necessities (seeds, pesticides, etc.), OSDI enables these people to grow fresh and nutritious vegetables within or outside their homes. In this way, an easy to access and readily available variety of vegetables is obtainable at their doorstep under the Kitchen Garden (K.G.) Project.

Disaster Relief Assistance

In DRA, OSDI aims to provide urgent facilitations as per need, to help lower the sudden impact, which leaves the vulnerable communities helpless. During the Covid-19 pandemic, OSDI has distributed ration bags to overcome the hunger and malnutrition issues within its focused communities as majority of the people living in these areas are daily wage laborers. Due to the massive destruction caused by the monsoon floods in 2010, OSDI undertook flood relief operations in mid-August 2010 in District Charsadda in Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa (KPK) and Districts Shikarpur, Khairpur, Matiari and Thatta in Sindh.
