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.
WOTR’s article is published in Vanarai Magazine (Marathi) August 2018. The article ‘Krushi Sanskritit Rujtey Plastic Sanskruti’ gives an overview of plasticulture in Indian agriculture. The article is written by Arjuna Srinidhi and Divya Nazareth, discusses the impact of plastics in agriculture and issues of pollution caused by it.
