VERMICOMPOST PRODUCTION TRAINING WORKSHOP

25th September 2020

Vermicompost production and it's use not only makes the soil nutrient rich, generates revenue by increasing crop yield and reduces dependency on chemical fertilizers, but also a scalable version of this model could also be used to manufacture and package ‘Vermicompost’ as a gardening product, creating an additional source of income for the farmers. Thus making farming sustainable and farmers self-reliant.

Three community vermicomposting units were set up at Tridipnagar, Jharkhali and a workshop on Vermicompost production was organised at Prameya Pathshala. In the said program, the 100 women of the Tridipnagar Gram Unnayan Mahila Samiti (Prameya Mangrove Action Committee) were trained by the renowned vermicomposting expert and social entrepreneur,

Mr. Animesh Mondal.

Toy Distribution at Jharkhali, Sundarbans 

25th October 2018

While growing up, most of us had a favorite toy that we would hold on to, no matter where we went, didn't we? But for many children in rural India, toys still remain a luxury that cannot be had. Toys are only one out of the several other things that these kids are deprived of. Poverty and misery are social truths, but can we really afford to have children around us growing up unhappy? Keeping this in mind we decided to bring fun and play into the lives of underprivileged children of the Sundarbans by distributing toys.

Singalila Policy Signature Campaign 

Clean up programmes alone won't bring any change. For creating an impact, stringent policies are needed. Keeping that in mind, Prameya initiated a community based awareness program and a signature campaign on it's proposed 'Singalila Policy' and held group discussion at the villages inside the Singalila National Park.

Prameya’s proposed' Singalila Policy' for the sustainable development in the area includes:

1.  A complete ban on plastic bottles and polythene in        the entire trekking route.

2. Construction of waste segregation bins.

3. Public bio-toilets.

4. Waste disposal and recycling strategies.

5. Medical emergency facilities for trekkers, tourists            and      locals.

6. Immediate repair of the Shrikhola Bridge.

The said proposal along with the signatures of the villagers was submitted to the District Magistrate, Divisional Forest Officer and the Chairman of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration.

Mangrove Plantation Programme 

17th June 2017

The world needs mangroves, but in many parts of the world they have been lost or degraded, along with their valuable services like coastal protection or fisheries enhancement. Restoration is necessary. With that in mind, Prameya Foundation organized a mangrove plantation and restoration programme at Jharkhali, Sunderbans. The villagers, especially those associated with BondhuPoribarSamiti, have worked extremely hard, both in the foreground and background, helping us organise the programme with ratification from the Panchayat, the Forest Department, and other authorities.
