DEVELOPMENT INNOVATION / INNERVATIONS

Developing models of Development is a priority concern and interaction of ECOMWEL. A field area is identified to addressing all emerging concerns using comprehensive community development approach in which people are the central focus for changes


Village identification | Farmers Identification | Training of farmers | Exposure visits | Veterinary Camps | Farmers Club | Field Demonstration | Demonstration Plots | Seed Bank | Women Collective Farming

The common thread among these methods is an embrace of farming practices that mimic natural ecological processes. Farmers minimize tilling and water use; encourage healthy soil by planting fields with different crops year after year and integrating croplands with livestock grazing; and avoid pesticide use by nurturing the presence of organisms that control crop-destroying pests. Beyond growing food, the philosophy of sustainability also espouses broader principles that support the just treatment of farm workers and food pricing that provides the farmer with a livable income



Our Objectives

* Awareness on Environmental Protection, Economic Viability, benefits and Social responsibilities.

* Support System to Landless Women Farmers

* Sensitizing Farming Communities on Livestock care and Maintenance.

CAPACITY BUILDING

Capacity building on contemporary development issues is one of the key strengths of ECOMWEL. Over the past 3 decades, ECOMWEL has addressed varied issues relating to disability, economic sustenance, rural urban poverty and lack of access to health care. It has developed an expertise in building capacities of NGOs through trainings, workshops, documentation and campaigns adopting principles of Equity, Justice and Non discrimination.


NGO PROJECT GRANT SUPPORT

ECOMWEL’s support for developmental projects is guided by its mission “Empower the Most in Need”.

ECOMWEL keeps its focus broad-based to respond effectively to different types of human needs. In the past, we had offered our support to many programmes covering different cross-section of people from the individual to small groups to large communities.

Current Projects



INDIVIDUAL GRANT SUPPORT

ECOMWEL offers limited number of fellowship opportunities for individuals who initiate development innovation confined to a predetermined small geographical area. It looks into the proposal submission based on the principles of equity.
Individuals, with deep passion and commitment to the society, come up with a micro-level project plan that might be bordering on success or failure. The grants are offered to such individuals, who are accessible and committed to smaller communities, or just a couple of villages.
They are usually not affiliated to any organisation or NGO’s and operate on personal interest and are mostly creative in developmental models and projects, which mostly bring effective and appreciative results. Newly-established individuals may be provided with a short-term grant to support a strategic planning exercise. Assuming successful completion of these grants, applicants would then be invited to re-apply for another project. The field work would be in the areas of education, community development, sanitation, agricultural awareness and so on, which balances with ECOMWEL’s model.



DISASTER RELIEF

ECOMWEL’s strength lies in our ability to meet the urgent needs of women, children and families during disasters such as flood, Tsunami and fire, as we work towards a long-term vision of social justice, incorporating the principles of equity and non discrimination. The need and concern of infant, children, differently abled, elderly, women, adolescent girls and widows are given priority in needs assessment as well as response, securing them in the safety net of immediate relief.

Women are often hardest hit when disaster strikes. They have fewer resources to start with and often are primarily responsible for those made most vulnerable. The Fund lets us act immediately and effectively, bringing crucial resources- like food, water, medical care and shelter- directly to the vulnerable and those most in need.

ECOMWEL also aids support in procuring lost documents like Ration Card, Certificates etc, due to natural calamities and man-made calamities, thereby securing identity and progress.
