----- Some questions and answers ---------

 

As enquired by Priyadarsan Babu, I furnish the details as under :

 

Who and how will be benefited:

 

The poor tribal people of village Jhankarbahali/Budapada/Tangarjori/Rathipada will be benefited. The poor people of these villages are completely landless and depend upon the local forest for cutting of bamboo out of which they used to make some rough articles and sale the same for their livelihood. The bamboo forest is gradually on the decay .The present bamboo plantation with the complete participation of the villagers will provide them with livelihood simultaneously encouraging them to make plantations each year out of their own interest which will be taken care of by them through their village protection committees.

Explicit plan to make it sustainable and repeatable at perhaps other places in Orissa in time:

 

BISWA has made plans to involve the people from the beginning of the project which they will fill that it is meant for only their development and should be sustained for their long term existence.

 

Is the NGO's name is BISWA:

The name BISWA stands for Bharat Integrated Social Welfare Agency .

project site (Jan to March 2003). ---------------------

Explicit plan to make it sustainable and repeatable at perhaps other places in Orissa in time:

 

I feel (with my limited knowledge) this nursery concept can be installed in different parts of Orissa. The plantation of plants has to change with the local needs. Also it will be a good source for the NGOs to have fundings for different projects for the benefit of people if they make it as a business (instead always waiting for outside fundings). Letís take this project as a trial project. Has SEEDS worked with Tree for Life organization? We also need bigger org. to help us in such project. Hope, we all put our resources together to work as a team for the benefit of the people of Orissa.

 

As soon as I receive the proposal I will send to you. Thanking you again,

 

With best wishes and regards ,
