Dear All, I am a development practitioner working for two social enterprises, both focused on Agriculture. In the first one we harvest rainwater and secure it underground in big volumes for small & marginalized farmers to make them water self sufficient. Our unique technology named # Bhungroo has won many international awards and laurels including the prestigious UNFCCC Climate Change Mitigation Award and World Bank's Development marketplace award. Our work is directly in tandem with SGD Goals 1, 2, 5 and 6.
In my second venture we work with farmers to improvise their agri-practices through Digital Solutions made by us addressing their pain-points. Our work here directly corresponds to addressing SDGs 2, 12 and 15. Both of these ventures are for-profit ventures and we have differentiated business models to work with farmers/farmer support organizations on one hand and the donors (Govt./CSR/International Funding Agencies) on the other. As a business we are quite conscious of making our impact known through varied mediums including beneficiary testimonials, national/international publications and word of mouth through partners, fellow development professionals and agencies. Moreover we are now aiming to secure impact investment funds for our expansion and growth purposes and for achieving bigger scale of our impact. Collaborations from like-minded agencies and professionals are most welcome in this regard.
