"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

Plans : Focus for next 2-3 years
Get Millets back in mainstream diet and cropping pattern. Enable inception of Small Scale Millet Processing Units that will procure, process and market millets.
Production:
Networking with farmers who are ready to grow millets in irrigated fields (and not just rain-fed)
Procurement:
Higher prices being paid to farmers than previously paid . Since inputs are low for growing Millets, farmers end up earning more.
Marketing:

City sales will subsidize local sales.
Introduction of Millets in local hotel menus (idli, dosa, etc).
