KARSHAKA -Cultivation of Medicinal Plants
"The Sustainable Livelihood of Tribal People In Attappady"
It is the responsibility of all Indian citizens to spread the merits of Ayurveda and Yoga, which was handed over into posterity from the time immemorial i.e. from the inception of Vedas, Rishis and Acharyas which was a dominant part of our culture. It is necessary to propagandize the concept of Yoga and Ayurveda in this era. Fortunately, United Nations Organizations has initiated to spread the concerns for Yoga and Ayurveda worldwide. As a part of this, the practices of Yoga and Ayurveda are well received by people all over the world. Its fruitful impact has enriched India massively. But the problem arises when in India such ideas are hindered by these Ayurveda pharmaceutical industries. These firms are facing scarcity of raw materials from the country which has resulted in an increase in the cost of Ayurvedic Medicines and Products. To tackle this issue of cost hike in Ayurvedic Medicine and Products, HRDS INDIA is garnering an initiative - Project ‘Karshaka’, for the promotion of medicinal plants in the country. HRDS INDIA believes that it is an efficient way to address such a contesting problem. This project will accelerate the availability of high quality raw materials for the Ayurvedic Product Market, and can also convert plain lands of Tribal people into Agricultural land.
Through this HRDS INDIA can ensure a minimum income for the local tribes and will eventually make a noticeable change in their lives too. The Project Karshaka will also help to bring the oppressed and marginalized Tribal People into the main stream of the society. The major Ayurvedic Pharmaceutical Industries in India; Patanjali, Himalaya, Dabur etc. has offered their full support and cooperation to HRDS INDIA for the implementation of Karshaka Project.
JWALAMUKHI - WOMEN EMPOWERMENT
The term “woman” portrays a picture of oppressed social gender, is not always given due recognition in the society. Her portrayal has been more akin to a secondary subject after men, choking her dignity. The plight of poverty-stricken women is even worse and remains inadequately unacknowledged. The inception of the women empowerment project - Jwalamukhi project is in the light of these prevailing issues only, assisting these deprived women through the formation of SHG (Self Help Group). They will work together and run some small-scale business, for instance, managing a canteen or any stitching unit, so on and so forth. In this way, the project will strengthen these women financially and socially who are subject to harsh realities. It’s a collective assignment with acceptance, resolution, endurance and astute devotion for greater attainment of equal status in the society. They have not actively participated in their own emancipation due to rampant illiteracy and the absence of economic independence.
HRDS INDIA has, therefore, decided to address this important issue by empowering women and raising their status socially and economically. Several initiatives are currently underway to empower women through education, cooperative farming, vocational training, savings plans, and entrepreneurial guidance.

EKAGRAH – EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
Education is important to individual development, social cohesion and economic growth. Education is the fundamental method of social progress and reform, through education society can formulate its own purposes, can organize its own means and resources, and thus shape itself with definiteness and economy in the direction in which it wishes to move”. Education involves the learning of valuable analytical skills and signals the level of abilities of the workers to employees. Externalities associated with the benefits of education make it essential that the government is engaged in the supply of education. The low level of people from socio-economically disadvantage areas enrolling in higher education means the education system still functions on an unequal basis. This partially reflects the lower levels of investment in primary education by the government.
Scholarships that assist or cover costs of pursuing a higher education provides a number of benefits for recipients. From reducing the financial burden of the rising costs of a college education, to allowing students more time and energy to focus on studies rather than part-time work, scholarships are one piece in the puzzle of what creates a strong foundation for supporting students in their success in pursuing a degree, and furthermore, completing that degree.
The most obvious benefit of scholarships is that they make college more affordable. From this larger, overarching benefit comes many more benefits. As college costs continue to rise, a major deterrent to pursuing, and finishing, a college degree is affordability. Scholarships can give students the financial bump needed to take a leap and enroll in a degree, as well as a boost to morale and a student's confidence in their ability to work toward a better future.
