The resturant and kitchen of group owned entreprise is inagurated today

Dear Friends,

Some photograph of how was it today.
The President JSIA, inagurated the facility and all of us including the large local group had lunch there.
We have also got some local products for them to sell there. One such product" Rishabh Bhujia" , the dealership of was give to them and the local girls slod the packets, to tourists for about 2 hours , with the lady who is making this product. The girls standing here are fresh and have not come out of their house till date for any work.

There are other products like Jharcraft products, herbal beauty products which are made locally and their representatives were there to discuss their products with local people.

We are sure that local girls and boys will sell these products to tourists and will run Resturant and kitchen for their benifits now.

It will be a mile stone in the Jharkhand tourism sector, as rural group is setting up their own enterprise, without any big corporate help or Govt help.

This project will give strength to our concept of rural community owned enerprise for self employment in tourism sector.

HI Ravi and thanks for the info.

The organisation I work with, which is a global network, has a member in India called Social Development Foundation (SDF) - they work with tribals and especially women in Uttar Pradesh to help them secure their land rights. See their website at - maybe this could be of interest to you.

Looking forward to hearing more about your work,

Yes I am working on a project about finding economic benefits of coastal resources which involve finding sensitive issues with regard to tourism, fishing and other livelihood activities when they all use common resources like reefs.

well as you must have seen, we are working with tribal village group, to deveope tourism as entreprise. The resistance from Govt agencies who wish to construct huge complexes there for the benifit of contractors and them self and poverty level of people residing at those places since centuries has added difficulties in our work.
Though Tourism dept is spending more than 150 crores in projects which will not benifit the tourism or local population, they are resisting move by group to form co-operative and take tourism as rural entreprise.
How do we cope up with this. As it is collecting fund from freinds is difficult which we are managing. Have you any such experience like this or can you suggest some thing to counter it!

Hi from Silicon Valley- California - a "serial entrepreneur" means someone who has started multiple companies - and likes to create - turn ideas into working, sustainable enterprise -
In Silicon Valley the common saying is that it takes 3 companies to fail enough to learn how to succeed - failure/experimentation/learning is embraced..
I'm onto company number 7 - so am rocking and rolling

Ravi: Hello... The BPF was designed to support small landholders with cutting edge technologies. But no, we did not include DAP / CAN in the package design because of the extra 40 KG of weight. If you write me an email I will send you a presentation on the package and program designed around the backpack system. A big element is not just raising production models but branding these groups and then leveraging local and international supply chains.
