The project aims to ensure that a number of poor, landless families can produce more food and/or earn a higher income.
While our partner Ahead Initiatives and their local partners show the way to do this through cultivation of for example, kitchen gardens, roadside plantings, plant forests and much more, the project is also working to involve local (municipal) authorities to take responsibility for granting money to support the poor.
The project has been through several phases and has been extended to areas in neighboring Orissa and Jharkhand states. The results have gradually gained recognition not only at the municipal level but also at the state level, which has now resulted in the state government of West Bengal joining as a partner and contributing extensive resources to the final phase of the project.
