Our initiatives are focused on conservation of water and access to clean energy, overall socio economic development of the poor, skill upgradation and entrepreneurship trainings and holistic village development. This is achieved unleashing traditional knowledge, identification of new technology and improved communication tools to undertake environment awareness and conservation initiatives.
