A sustainability project
Several years ago, our partners Robin and Angeleena acquired a plot of 4 hectares at a surprisingly low price, in the neighbouring State of Rajasthan, about 30 km from Rewari. An intensive culture of medicinal plants and herbs has been developed, with promising results: laboratory studies have confirmed the effectiveness of these products in the treatment of various ailments. Commercial opportunities have so far been limited, but the potential for the future is enormous.
The agricultural land has proved to be more “fruitful” from a financial point of view. Each year, over ten tonnes of cereal crops, mustard and Indian gooseberries etc. are sold on the market, providing a precious source of additional revenue which can be reinvested in the more specifically “humanitarian” programmes of the organisation.
