Secure Livelihood in Rural India by Small Orchard



This World Bank Awarded Evokation of small orchard model focuses on livelihood generation for disadvantaged and underserved populations primarily consisting of tribal community in rural India.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

I have seen the following vicious cycle which is the root of problem identification and my resolve to do something with this problem in the first opportunity: Most of the fields are monocropped usually with upland rice with very poor productivity (less than one ton). They sell a portion of rice to purchase of goat, chicken etc. and keeping another portion for household consumption. When rice exhausted the goat and hen/cocks are sold and thereafter migrate to town for working as labourer.

How will this project solve this problem?

I envisage small orchard with 1acre area which will help in generating round the year engagement for farmers, thereby checks migration besides generating income on a regular basis.

Potential Long Term Impact

To provide a development model for Eastern Indian Plateau with the scope for up-scaling throughout the developing world.
