Sustainable Livelihood

The most obvious impact of unemployment in the rural areas of North Bengal is the economy, as unemployed people have less money to spend, which means the local businesses don’t profit as much. There are also social consequences to unemployment. Unemployed people may suffer from depression or other mental health issues, and they may struggle to provide for their families, especially when it comes to healthcare and nutrition.

 

Our project department is structured under our initiative “Employment Opportunity for Sustainable Livelihood” programme which aims to uplift the livelihoods of the rural people living in the Kalimpong and Darjeeling District region. Under the department following projects are conducted to help those in need:

  1. Handloom
  2. Silk Reeling Unit
  3. Stinging Nettle (Proposed)
  4. Bamboo
  5. Darjeeling Organics
  • Shiitake Mushroom
  • Darjeeling Tea
  • Broomstick Grass
  • Large Cardamom
  • Turmeric
  • Dairy
  • Eucalyptus Oil
  • Lemongrass
  1. Hamro Passal

We are also working along with West Bengal Khadi & Village Industries Board on a joint venture under the Project: Rural Craft Hub. For this project Mani Trust is the implementing agency since 2017.This joint venture has helped us to promote the local Handloom Sector that has been immobile for many decades.
