Date : 19th Feb' 2023
We shall be hosting an in-person workshop at the Sundarbans on the 19th of February, 2023, where we shall arrange educational, vocational, and recreational activities for our students. This one-day affair will also include refreshments and lunch.
We plan to create a self-sustainable and self-reliable project in the upcoming months. This project shall focus entirely on womenfolk, who shall take over and run this project independently. We shall provide supplies to the mothers of our students at the Sundarbans to begin cultivating organic vegetables on their lands. The women will then sell these vegetables at their local markets to earn a livelihood. We shall also provide hens, goats, and cows along with other necessary supplies with a help of which they can create their own organic farms. The microfinancing will be done from our end to help these women build a living on their own accord. Experts in this arena will be appointed to provide them with professional training and knowledge to proceed with this project. Further, we look forward to arranging an online platform backed by the digital knowledge that we provide to the natives, who shall then sell their organic harvest in a digital marketplace. We see a lot of potential in creating this self-sustainable setup, and, in the long run, also plan 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.
