  • Recent thought

    Commercial Integration

    Commercial integration &

    scale

    Economic opportunity

    Transitional Land

  • 1.Operational access to barren lands/sandbar for the resource poor displaced communities living on flood protection embankments.

    2.Financial and technical support mechanism to run the activity

    3.Dissemination at national and international level to benefit wider communities.

  • Promise to keep, Dreams to fulfill,

    still we have long way to go

    To talk about the future is only useful if it leads to action now.

    E.F. Schumacher, Author of Small is Beautiful

  • For something exceptional

    It is not how much we do,

    but how much love we put in the

    doing.

    It is not how much we give,

    but how much love we put in the

    giving.
