The mystical forests of Polladpur offer an ideal environment for agro-forest tourism. The unique flora and fauna make it a unique location for camping, trekking and bird watching activities. Our young volunteer Vilas Kondalkar, a resident of the area, spearheads this project.

To promote self-employment and build micro enterprises, MEERA endeavours to encourage as many SHG’s as possible. Small loans will be made available to create livelihoods which can be returned within a short period to be recycled to the next benefactor. Though the objective is more ‘women-centric’, flexibility will be accorded in cases to also include certain households who have need for capital or expansion of their micro enterprise.

The entire topography is blessed with rare species of flora and fauna which needs to be protected from the growing menace of tourists with scant regard to what they are destroying.

General awareness will be created with the local community, regards environmental issues which will help them promote and communicate the same to tourists and visitors.

Farmers of this region have small land holdings, thus making Community Farming a lucrative option by building a more local and equitable agriculture system to promote small productive & profitable farms. Here the main objective of MEERA is to develop a particular region and attain the farm’s highest ecological potential, thereby encouraging maximum neighbouring farms to participate in such projects and form a network. This will reduce production costs, eradicate middlemen to ensure a fair price for produce and establish better logistics.
MEERA will initially assist the farmers by means of financial aid, marketing, technical assistance etc.
