Welcome To Harsha Trust
Harsha Trust has operated in Odisha since 2002. By the year 2018 we have already worked with more than 87871 families to enhance their income by atleast 50% of their existing incomes. Our vision is to eliminate hunger and malnutrition in the backward pockets of the state, actively supported by the community, other NGO partners, government and corporations. Our idea is to place small women farmers who produce our food at the forefront. We provide platforms for communities which will address myriad dimensions of rural livelihood , starting from organizing women into SHGs and subsequently village organizations. We have 10 Farmer Producer Organizations helping in aggregation of products and thus fetching better prices for both ends of the value chain.
