Sustainable Livelihood
ICTs, when used in a participatory, collaborative and locally relevant manner, can play a significant role in improving livelihoods and alleviating poverty.

Our Objectives:

  • Information & Communication Technology for Livelihood:: To enhance the livelihoods of the public by providing better access to agricultural information, commerce, education and training facilities

  • Addressing livelihood issues in artisan and other youth & Women clusters by, empowering them with knowledge, attitude and skills to enable them augment their current income. The special focus of our activities lies with the underprivileged groups, the women, youth, and other unprivileged sections

  • Harness the power of ICT (Information & Communication Technology) as an important component of livelihood programs

  • Develop Food production and small industries:: The resource-poor and smallholder farmers are our specific focus to support, sustain and develop food production and small rural industries for economic growth

  • Holistic View:: Address the specific risks and threats faced by the small producers within the context of  local  production and market conditions by taking a holistic view of their strengths, weakness and opportunities.
  • Participatory approach:: Apply a Participatory approach to input technologies and interventions that directly involves local communities themselves in their development and validation, rather than imposing solutions from outside

  • Development of effective systems:: The Key need throughout the world is the development of these effective systems  by which knowledge can be made available to rural communities for their own evaluation and use .

Some of the findings on the aspects of Livelihoods are :

  • Lack of Knowledge: Resource-poor farmers are often under considerable pressure to invest scarce funds in agro-chemical control solutions to pest problems as a result of a lack of knowledge of alternatives

  • Using a ‘dialectic approach’, practical demonstrations and low levels of facilitation can stimulate householders’ investment in testing alternative, productive natural resource-based livelihood enterprise, without a subsidy.

  • Local individuals can emerge as rural service providers once demand for quality inputs and appropriate information is articulated and recognised.

  • Adopting a Participatory process leads to a sustainable improvement in the livelihoods of the poor communities. The poor and socially disadvantaged explored new livelihood opportunities by improving management of  natural resources
