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.


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.


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.

Long-Term Impact

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