Ecofriendly Development

Most of India’s population live in villages, their livelihood closely tied to the natural environment.  In spite of their diverse skills, poor villagers rarely receive fair prices for their crops, their products and their labor. Many are forced to migrate to crowded cities. The key to a healthy and developed India is enhancing villagers’ indigenous skills and transforming them into sustainable business opportunities at the grassroots level.  IDRF funds programs that facilitate rural enterprises – such as organic farming, dairies, and weaving – and incorporate the latest clean energy technology.
