There is an urgent need to create mechanisms to empower widows in Yavatmal and Vidarbha, and give them the support they need to pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward. However, such initiatives are rare. One of the few such projects for the welfare of the helpless women is run by Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR) and its sister organization Sampada Trust.
We are delighted to share that WOTR's press release on the occasion of World Environment Day, received coverage in the Financial Chronicle, a leading Hindi newspaper. The release had warned about excessive plastic usage in agriculture and its threat to soil health, the risk of it entering the food chain and lowering commercial value of crops.
