Bengal is emerging as one of our biggest hub of initiatives in rural India. While in north Bengal our teams are reaching out to farmers to purchase potatoes in bulk and including these in our local ration kits, in Sunderbans, where our teams had earlier (before the lockdown) worked with the communities to plant kitchen gardens, they are now growing and selling back fresh vegetables to us, which are being added to our local ration kits. Similarly, we have mobilized and supported a community making bamboo baskets, while in Alipore, tribals are engaged in face mask making work. In Kolkata,and also in North Bengal, we are engaging small-time tailors to make face masks for our relief kits but the best story is of a bitter-gourd (karela) growing farmer, who contributed all his produce to Goonj, as a token of help.
We are there…Need you too…
