Initiated in 2014, EcoPro works in three hamlets of Scheduled Tribals in the Kalrayan Hills. Here, children suffer from chronic undernutrition, the village communities suffer from absence of sanitation and lack of educational & livelihood opportunities, and farmers are open to re-learn organic farming practices and methods of sustainable water and soil management. Accordingly, EcoPro is engaged in nutritional education of parents and teachers and the provision of food supplements to school children; in training and guidance in organic farming; and in construction of ecosan toilets.
