ORGANISATION

FARM2FOOD FOUNDATION

 

INSPIRATION

Co-founders Deepjyoti and Gaurav believed in their vision to “enable unemployed youth to become farm & food entrepreneurs and build a peaceful and prosperous North East”, when they started the journey to transform farming into a viable and sustainable livelihood in North East India.

Farm2Food began with a team of committed individuals and experts coming together to set up a model that could offer organic farming training, marketing linkages, and community development in the rural Assam.

 

OUR ROLE

We work closely with our incubatees to re-model their business, organizational and market models, and set up systems and processes for an effective operational strategy. The resulting FSE-ible model will enable the organization to promote entrepreneurship in farming amongst farmers, women and young people on a large scale.

Steps towards FSE-ibility

-School nutrition gardens linked to Mid-Day Meal Program

-Agro-preneurship to enhance employment opportunities

-Building positive attitude towards farming as a livelihood option

-Reusing thermocol fish boxes for box farming

ELIM

 

INSPIRATION

“My heart runs faster than my mind,” says the man who envisioned ELIM, an organization that enables the materially poor to generate sustainable income by linking their indigenous skills & local resources to markets.

Sem sees in ELIM a means to restore self dignity and community life by connecting the existing market channels with the vibrant culture, handicrafts and cultivation in rural Manipur. His inner compass moves him towards creating an impact that positively effects change in the lives of others.

 

OUR ROLE

We are working with Sem to transform his vision into a financially viable, ecologically sustainable and socially impactful enterprise. The incubation process will develop a FSE-ible model with systems for implementation, organization development, and a robust value chain.

Steps towards FSE-ibility

-Proposing set up of zero-waste multi-purpose food processing units
-Building peace among conflict-ridden communities through promotion of culture & crafts
-Promoting employment amongst materially poor tribal communities

ORGANISATION

Rose Academy Pvt. Ltd.

 

INSPIRATION

Growing up in Old Gurgaon, a semi-rural area with limited access to computer education, Amit carried a dream of bridging the gap in computer education and changing the rural populace’s mindset.

He began his journey to bring low-cost computer education to his village by setting up ROSE Academy Private Limited. According to Amit, “Rural Organization for Social Empowerment (ROSE), run by villagers, provides computer skills to rural population to enable them to get employment, access better opportunities and use technology to save money and time.”

 

OUR ROLE

We are working with Amit on organization development and preparing ROSE for its expansion. Our key work areas include systems development, consolidation of each of the six centers, development of promotion & marketing strategy, and a clear human resource management. The resulting model will have a striking balance in its financial, social, and ecological impact allowing ROSE to achieve its vision of providing computer education in all villages in rural Haryana.

Steps towards FSE-ibility

-Using NComputing device in centers for saving energy

-Bridging the gender gap in computer education with an enrolment of 80% girl students

-Training individuals in rural areas on the use of internet technology to save time and energy
