Food Processing

With our support, a partner CBO, Himalayan Gramin Vikas Sanstha-HGVS, have set up a small fruit processing unit at Ukhimath (district Rudraprayag) as an income augmentation measure for the villagers, especially women, affected by the June 2013 Kedarnath disaster. This has led to a better utilisation of local fruit produce, reducing wastage and improving returns. (Ukhimath Report PDF)

A youth group in Galla village in the Ramgarh area (district Nainital) has also been helped in setting up a small fruit processing unit.
