Ahmednagar (Maharashtra), January 2019:
The BOSCO GRAMIN VIKAS KENDRA (BGVK) in collaboration with VAN AMERIGEN FOUNDATION has been implementing Rural Biogas Project for the poor farmers in the villages of central Maharashtra. BGVK has now successfully completed the construction of all the 30 biogas units in the villages. People are very much grateful to BGVK as well as Van Amerigen Foundation for their financial assistance and constant support. 

The main objective of the project is to induce the change in behaviour by shifting from the practice of using firewood to more efficient biogas run stoves and thereby prevent environment degradation by stopping vegetation from cutting, reducing smoke production and sage disposal of bio degradable solid waste.

Fr George D’Abreo (Director – BGVK) said, “Our heartfelt thanks to VAN AMERIGEN FOUNDATION for the support and especially to Mr Clarence for his constant support in this project.” He further mentioned that not only the construction of units is now complete but also people are using the biogas for cooking; which brings in lots of benefits to the environment and to the health of poor women cooking in the kitchen.
