WHO ARE WE?
We facilitate rural communities in India to live a sustainable life. We focus on more than creating livelihoods alone. We focus on Social, Economic and Natural. We envision a transformed world where self-reliant communities live in harmony with each other and nature.
  • We aim for bottom-up development which creates independence, awareness/knowledge, and self-sufficiency within the rural communities we work with (institutional empowerment)
    • We also take the environment and climate change into account and promote organic farming practices. We want to create a future-ready world.
      • We further promote (women) equality within the rural communities (institutional empowerment).


We implement our vision through innovative sustainable agricultural business and marketing models. Currently, we have 4 projects we work on. Link to Reset, Hesperidin, ZBNF, and PMKSY. We create opportunities to re-connect producers to consumers, to their natural environment, and to their own community. This is not another organic farmer mobilization and training project. We have been there, done that, and learned our lessons. This is an attempt at helping an emergent ecosystem of regenerative global value chains flourish. In our intervention the attempt to bring about change in the existing power relations is crucial. We aim to help small organic farmers build a cohesive platform to voice out their interests vis a vis both public and private sector powers. We use innovative and multi-stakeholder value proposition as a tool.
