Development Education :
Through development education, Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation’s objective is to make villagers self reliant and utilize local resources. The focus of the development education is to train the villagers on agricultural and natural resource management activities. Some of our projects are .
- Plantation, herbal and fruit bearing
- Water management
- Vegetable cultivation
- Cattle care
- Self help groups
Further, Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation also helps the villagers to create self-help groups and help in development activities.
Gram vikas yojana has been implemented in 51 villages who have shown interest in participation. Villagers are informed about various alternative socuces of income and training is given to them about various schemes. Initially we gave training on production of vermicompost, organic farming, bio-gas ect since 2007 till date. Ekal Abhiyan has helped villagers from 51 villages to construction 510 vermicompost pits which are producing 25 tons of vermicompost per month. Marketing of the product has been done by our executive team from SVO Belgaum and entire beneifit has been passed on to farmers directly. Every farmer is earning Rs 1500/- per months from one pit through manufacture of vermicompost. Most of the villagers have been encouraged to utilise vermicompost in their field to produce organic food grains and vegitables.
Additional schemes like pickles, papads, masala, huney ect will be introduced shortly in number of villages and their marketing will be done from our end
