About MALVIKAA SOLANKI

I founded, ‘swaYYam’, in 2011, a not for profit organization, which is an eco-conscious effort that practices, promotes and supports low-impact living;
swaYYam in sanskrit, suggests, the unified self and embodies the spirit of self-reliance & self sufficiency in thought & action.

swaYYam is a family of ideas which are conceived from the domain of self-sufficiency, which aims at creating an environment, emphasizing the relationship of humans to earth - shelter, energy, food, transportation, water, and waste. swaYYam proposes to create ‘whole’ integrated human settlements, with local needs met largely by local production by local communities, such that as many inputs as possible are provided from within the system, and as many as outputs as possible are used within it. This approach is the founding ideal to swaYYam’s philosophy with everything else being an input towards this end, promoting sustainable living through practical lifestyle choices.

It will take years for mankind to undo, if at all, the damage done to nature. With swaYYam we take our small first step, to create a self-feeding, self-sufficient living communities, which draws from ancient tradition and natural farming methods devoid of stripping the earth of its natural resources, where, people take care of themselves, feed themselves, build their own dwelling spaces and create energy for their needs, more as a norm rather than an exception. Its not a peripheral activity, an alternative, it is mainstream, it is the way forward.

The project aims to maintain the integrity of the local ecology - social and environmental and integrate sustainability in every decision and design and build capacities and self-reliance within. Our aim at swaYYam is to establish replicable and demonstration sites that also serve as an education and learning centre. We start with our first project on a barren piece of rain-fed land in South of India, by starting to heal the soil and regenerate the forests.
