  • Descrição


    We are a non-profit organization locally involved, since 2013, in agriculture, education, environment, art, livelyhood and health. We are based in the Basouli village in the Kumaon region (Uttarakhand, India). In 2011, we started the creation of a small scale organic farm model, located at the foothill of the Himalaya in the forest next to Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary. So far, out of two hectares, one acre is cultivated with different types of crops and fruit trees. Our efforts get rewarded as we observe the mixed forest growing again over the pin's land.
    Parallely, we run a digital community center provinding help to the local people as english, computer, photography, filming classes, etc.
    We require creative and hardworking people who would like to help us and the community, who like nature and its simple life.
