We, at DVS Kalyan Samiti, have been working on a number of initatives that embody this vision of sustainability. On the one hand, we help rural poor to benefit from the local resources through environmentally sustainable technologies and processes and building market linkages and on the other, we work continually towards enhancing the sustainability of natural resources.
The climate change debate together with the linked issue of global population expansion have raised the public’s awareness of global warming and the allocation of scarce resources for food and energy producation. At street level, in houses and shops, people are still unclear as to what they should do to help reduce climate change and/ or the pressure on global resources. People are now advised to work, live and consume in a sustainable manner. As agriculture, forests, water and Sanitation systems and wastelands face greater pressues from changing climates, poor communities become increasingly vulnerable to it.
Our focus is on Micro Finance, Micro Insurance, Women Empowerment, Youth Skill Development and development of water resources. While converging resources from other donors for Empowerment, agriculture, agribusiness and capacity building and institution building activities of the communities.
DVS Kalyan Samiti has always promoted farmers to work in sustainable and agriculturally responsible ways, this vision is vital, now more than ever before. We have introduced, developed and promoted sustainable methods and technologies to vast numbers of farmers and communities.
I am proud to be associated with them. We will appreciate your prestigious feedback. This is the single fact that motivates us to do more. My heartiest congratulations to my colleagues who have been part of this journey.
