We have created a self-sustainable and self-reliable project in the previous months and this project focused entirely on womenfolk, who took over and ran this project independently. We provided supplies to the mothers of our students at the Sundarbans to begin cultivating organic vegetables on their lands. The women then cultivated and sold those vegetables at their local markets to earn a livelihood. We also provided hens, goats, and cows along with other necessary supplies and with a help of which they have created their own organic farms. The microfinancing was done from our end to help these women build a living on their own accord. Experts in this arena was appointed to provide them with professional training and knowledge to proceed with the project. We had also arranged an online platform backed by the digital knowledge that was provided to the natives, who could then sell their organic harvest in a digital marketplace. We saw a lot of potential in creating this self-sustainable setup, and, in the long run, also planned to set up a physical store in Kolkata. These organic vegetables will be sold at affordable rates and the profits shall go to the women and their families directly. We aim to build a proper set-up by the end of this year.


Promise Kolkata Charitable Trust with the support of Shri Shri Kanak Mataji Trust has have taken the initiative to empower women through training programs in natural farming techniques, cultivating a variety of vegetables that are popular in local market like eggplant, beetroot, green chilies, spinach, beans, turnip and many more without the use of harmful chemicals.

The natural farming initiatives contribute to broader community development and environmental conservation. Cause the use of natural fertilizers has not also improved the nutritional value of the products but also enhances the natural balance of the soil.
