The Ek Soch Foundation was established in the year 2011, with the objective of empowering entrepreneurs working at the grass-root level, in the fields of agriculture, micro-entrepreneurship, sanitation, health and education.
After supporting several initiatives and running multiple programs in the holy city of Varanasi and five districts around it, we moved our area of focus to the Mathura – Vrindavan region, in Uttar Pradesh, which is India’s most populous state with over 200 million people. It is rich in art and culture, as well as tenders fertile soil as a result of the Ganga and the Yamuna doab.
“Initially when I started Jaivik Kheti associating with Ek Soch Foundation, fellow villagers demotivated me. Despite that, I continued it. The results are positive.”
“A member from Ek Soch Foundation guided us to implement the SRI technique in paddy cultivation. Hand operated weeders were of great help to us. I feel great about increased productivity this year.”
