Overview

In this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDMir64ORTw&feature=emb_logo), we share a program that is being led by our partner, the Gorakhpur Environmental Action Group (GEAG), that responds to the increased and prolonged incidents of flooding and waterlogging in Gorakhpur, India. Training a group of 30 ?model farmers? in sustainable and organic farming practices has inspired 619 more to mimic these proven farming techniques. These actions are amplifying the efforts of GEAG and impacting the lives of nearly 18,000 people.
