Project Kamdhenu promotes collective action on sustainable, and organic agricultural practices while ensuring care for abandoned cattle. Project location: RATH, a small town in the drought-prone Bundelkhand region, District Hamirpur of Uttar Pradesh, India, and one of the operational areas of Organic India. Years of drought and indiscriminate use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides have degraded soil quality and impacted agricultural livelihood. OIF is assisting local cow shelters to use cow dung to manufacture manure and vermicompost, which is sold back to the community by the gram panchayat at nominal prices to keep the project sustainable. The foundation has also established a local compost manufacturing unit and conducts awareness workshops to educate about natural soil health practices. Project Kamdhenu has helped farmers adopt soil health practices that enrich the soil, prevent erosion, reduce carbon emissions, and generate new income opportunities including the market for bio-based products.
