The CEC Project

Holistic approach has been adopted in this with using local resources and knowledge to improve the productivity and production of the farm by using appropriate technologies and upgrading the skills of the farmers, including landless. It is a multi location project sponsored by Commission of European Community (CEC) in Gujarat; it is being implemented in two clusters of Surat and Bharuch each, covering about 50 villages.
This year 1753 BPL families are actively involved in the project. Based on resource base about 22 development models are developed named as Jan Utthan to improve the land productivity, increase the farm income and to bring BPL families above the poverty line within next 4 to 5 years.
