Don't Let Your Waste Go To Waste
Project JanBhoomi aims to tackle the problem of land degradation, which is a source of major concern given the amount of fertile land is continuously decreasing in relation to the world population.
Replacing chemical fertilizers which degrade the soil with continuous use.
Combating eutrophication, which is another ill effect arising out of use of chemical fertilizers.
Improving soil structure with regular use of compost, thereby reducing the amount of water used for agriculture.
Including waste management composting under the ambit of the Project, thereby reducing improper disposal of waste.
Inculcating entrepreneurship skills in our community for the Project, and providing a source of sustainable livelihood.
Project JanBhoomi, in collaboration with IARI, was able to successfully market its first batch of compost. With two new permanent pit locations, JanBhoomi started the process of reaching new heights.
In October 2018, Enactus KMC collaborated with the Government of Haryana to create direct impact at the root level. The team visited multiple villages in Palwal, Haryana and convinced the farmers of Haryana to switch from chemical fertilizers to organic compost.
Enactus KMC has also successfully diversified into different types of composting methods with waste management pits set up in two institutions in Delhi, and flower compost now available.
We have 2 technical experts on board, and have approached an expert from IARI for further specialized insights for the Project. Biodegradable packaging is available for smaller quantities of compost.
Waste management will help reduce the burden on municipalities for waste disposal, thereby leading to fewer disasters which are now widely common in overburdened landfills.
Aforementioned points of reducing land degradation and eutrophication help contribute towards a greener a cleaner future for all.
Project JanBhoomi, from its collaboration with the Government of Haryana, was able to save the farmers of Haryana a huge amount of money, by providing the better alternative of organic compost.
Land covers 29% of the Earth. The vision of this Project is to ensure that the fertility of the available land should be maximized to make the most of this limited resource and maximize productivity. Using waste in a constructive manner will also be a major aim of this Project. The most important aim, however, will be to ensure financial dependence or the community which will run this Project.
