Lets know more about Project
The journey towards Ram Rajya, begins from the station of Gram Rajya and Gram Rajya means Rural Development.
The agriculture viz. flora and fauna is the primary source, the backbone of Bharat’s (India) economy. However, the agricultural business has not grown expectantly over the years. Furthermore, due to the excessive misuse of chemical fertilisers and the lack of innovative ways to overcome this problem, the farmers and labourers got buried under the vicious cycle of huge pay-debts. Hence, the farmers began to commit suicide to escape the trap.
Thus, in order to guide the farmers to re-establish their occupation and initiate farming afresh by using the resources already available to them, such as land, water and cattle the ‘Aniruddha’s Institute of Gramvikas’ guides the farmers to self-reliably fulfil their family's necessities.
On 6 May, 2010, Dr Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi launched the project- 'Aniruddha’s Institute of Gramvikas'. A project,which he conceived and envisioned as a result of his expansive study and research. Thus, as his earnest responsibility and the humble willingness to contribute to the betterment of the society, Dr Aniruddha Joshi shared his vision, which helped shape this project as an innovative tool for the farmers and students related to the agro-industry to learn from and innovate with the moving times.
‘Aniruddha’s Institute of Gramvikas’ provides free diploma courses to the underprivileged farmers.
The courses have been categorised in two parts based on their syllabus and locality.
