Self-Reliant Slum of Washim, Maharashtra
During the Covid pandemic since month of March, community from the slum area of Washim city is passing through awful situation. Most of them are drivers, labors, porters, scrap pickers, etc. Due to lockdown most of them have lost their jobs, rested their businesses, source of incomes or wages with no hopes and threatening future.
Provision of grocery kits and short term aid can no more work as people are losing the hopes.
Through our project, we are intending to make families self-sustained in growing their own food at their own backyard. We will provide them with the kit of plant growing beds and seedlings. Some of them will be provided with Rhinovermi beds and worms so that they can produce vermicompost at their home and exchange it with the one who is growing vegetables. Excess amount of fertilizer they can sold to the market and generate income.
