landless farmers in Odisha. Our attempt is to help reduce the food and nutrition issues faced by Tribal, Dalit and the socially deprived by helping them revive organic and multi-cropping
Vision: Empowering marginalized communities to improve their quality of life.
Mission: Bringing holistic development through innovative solutions for a better society.
Operating from the eastern part of India- home to some of the poorest communities in the world and particularly vulnerable for food insecurity, VIEWS has been working with different national, international agencies and the Government on various high impact projects for the last 10 years enhancing the well being of communities in two broad areas.
- Improving the livelihood and social security of rural farmers by adopting the Farm-Farmer- Family approach; starting with transformation of the farms and complementing seasonal agricultural incomes through opportunities arising in the non-farm sector.
- Enhancing the income of small producers (farm, forest, fish, livestock), and covering other related themes such as Water, Financial Inclusion, Climatic Resilience and Energy.
This diversification has helped the community reduce vulnerability by spreading income risk. Household-based activities in the non-farm sector have been particularly rewarding for the rural women improving their economic well- being and helping them able to spend more on health-care, education, food, nutrition, etc. for their families.
Our future initiatives will continue to create an enabling environment of well-being for the poor with a focus on self-sustaining community led initiatives through knowledge, innovation and transformative action
