Odisha Millets Mission’s Call to Volunteers for Summer Internship 2018

Government of Odisha has launched a “Special Program for promotion of Millets in Tribal Areas of Odisha (Odisha Millets Mission)” in 11 districts of Odisha. Government of Odisha piloted the Millets in ICDS in 10 AWCs each in Nuapada and Gajapati Districts. This unique initiative received a great response from the adivasis. Based on the response, Government of Odisha is planning in a phased manner to go ahead with inclusion of millets in ICDS and MDM. At the same time, there is also a growing demand for millets in urban areas. Market potential of millets can be harnessed by increasing the awareness.

In this context, State Secretariat (NCDS &WASSAN) of Millet Mission is launching a Millet Summer Internship programme. This internship programme will be conducted both in rural and urban areas of Odisha.
