Around 70% of the population still lives in rural communities of India where access to hospitals, clinics or other reliable medical infrastructures is very limited. India has 48 doctors per 100,000 persons which is less than one doctor for every 1000 population.

We also organize informative seminars in rural communities and share innovative farming practices that can help small farmers with maximizing their crop yield.Read More
