Ahmednagar (Maharashtra), February 2021:
The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) through its implementing partner Bosco Gramin Vikas Kendra (BGVK) is currently implementing a project on adaptation to climate change in the districts of Ahmednagar and Beed. This project is financially supported by Don Bosco Mondo, Bonn – Germany.

Activities such as awareness programs on climate change, water budgeting, water management, soil health, organic fertilizers and its demonstrations, organic culture bank, building check dam, training on various cropping patterns and government entitlements have been conducted in the project villages. The villagers were also encouraged to use organic fertilizers and pesticides in their fields.

Fr Rolvin D’Mello (Executive Director – DBDS) on his visit met some of the farmers and also visited their plots which were cultivated with organic fertilizers. Mr Navnath Berad, a farmer and project beneficiary said that the organic culture bank has been a blessing to him and to many farmers in the village. It has cut down their cost on chemical fertilizers and the yield has also increased due to this fact. The framers were grateful to BGVK for their continuous assistance.

Fr George D’abreo (Director – BGVK) said that the farmers have been very much interested and convinced of this organic farming and slowly adopting this whole organic way of farming. It also helps them to cut down the cost of farming. He also thanked Don Bosco Mondo for their monetary support.
