SankalpTaru is working with marginal farmers in Puliyanparai village, Gudalur Taluk, Nilgiris, Tamil Nadu, India. Puliyanparai is located amidst teagardens and lush green forests. Although this region has plenty of shade giving trees, but based on our need assessment study, there is a necessity for fruit bearing trees. This project aims to meet nutritional needs of the villagers and also provide sustainable livelihood options.
