VSP - Vikas Sahyog Pratisthan

Capacity building of grassroots leaders and institutions

women

VSP aims to reduce the vulnerability of rural societies in drought prone regions in India through strengthening the resilience of rural, agricultural based communities. VSP uses a comprehensive approach, including the promotion of local integrated farming systems or linking farmers up to markets. The focus is mostly on women who are included in the design, prioritisation and monitoring of the activities. The Dalyan/Edelgive supported program aims at improving the income of female-headed households through more productive organic farming methods, collective marketing and generation of additional income streams. In addition, VSP is receiving support to further develop its organisation.
