At Govardhan Ecovillage, you can contribute to any of the following causes that you care for. Here’s a quick overview of our philanthropic activities:
We encourage and empower tribal farmers through sustainable agriculture. As a part of this programme, we equip the farmers to convert their challenges into opportunities. Since agriculture is the primary occupation for most farmers, we strive to make a paradigm shift by blending traditional and modern practices and addressing problems like scarcity of water, lack of awareness towards farming techniques, and others.
This is our initiative to provide free and concessional healthcare and medical treatment to the needy sections of the society like rural areas of Palghar district. To date, we have started four community health care centers and our mobile medical units have catered to nearly 60,000 rural patients. Equipped with a qualified medical doctor, pharmacist, a community resource person, and a driver, we provide general OPD and IPD services to the individuals.
Here, we are implementing a holistic approach to address the water scarcity problem to make it fit for irrigation and drinking. As a part of our Water Resource Development initiative, our experts follow a three-pronged approach to educate and train the villagers about water conservation and ensure optimal utilization of available natural resources.
This programme is designed keeping in mind the women of the nation. As a part of this initiative, we encourage the women from rural project areas to get involved in the planning, the development stage of the family and contribute their share in family income. Different self-help groups are created for sustained growth and development and to date, we have successfully created more than 300+ groups that have a membership of 3000+ women which are benefitting nearly 15,000 people.
A recent study by the National Skill Development Corporation indicates that there’s still a requirement of 11.92 crores of skilled manpower in major sectors by 2022. Owing to this wide skill gap, we at GEV are operating a Skill Development Programme to foster social entrepreneurship and create a confident youth skilled to handle self-employment. The programme believes in community involvement and also creates the possibility for rural youths to pursue higher education and step out of poverty.
If we wish to change the future, we need to work on the children of who will become the truth for tomorrow. It is this belief that inspired us to initiate education programs in the rural areas of the Palghar district. There is a huge need for interactive and innovative ways to impart knowledge in order for the youth to explore their full potential. We therefore, constantly strive to transform the traditional methods of sharing knowledge which can be leveraged to make the youths more skilled and employable not just in our focus area but all around the world.
Food is the basic need for our sustenance. We at GEV understand it and hence this is our humble initiative to feed the hungry. Inspired from the founder Acharya of ISKCON His Divine Grace, within a ten-mile radius” of the temple, in this programme, we provide free full meal lunch prasadam to everyone without discriminating them on any parameters.
