About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

In the present condition the village level milk producers are being deprived a justifiable price for their milk and required just in time extension services and information to meet their needs in animal health & awareness. The gaps in information and receiving and application of just in time dairy extension services to their day to day activities are vital for the productivity of rearing milking cows to generate additional income for house holds.

Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

In the operating system of the project a small farmer could send a SMS with their mobile phone with the desired code to inform the system his needs and the software would deliver it to all the service providers in that particular service sector. The availability of the service providers with their confirmation back to the system with a reply sms enable the system to select the most appropriate person to deliver that service and create the linkage with the service provider and the recipients. Further a touch screen computer system has been placed at the collecting/processing centre with easy operating access to the farmers to fulfil their needs including sending sms, obtaining milk price in accordance with the composition of milk, animal health services, treatment for most common deceases and latest news updates in regard to animal sales, instructions and national level dairy related news.

No competitors Challenges:Mistrust in regard to current service providers, Limited delivery time, Reluctance of public sector service providers in getting involves with new programmes, Set backs experienced by dairy farmers in last two decades, Free service culture of communities, High concern of private sector service providers about cost factors in participatory activities,Incapability of deliver limited services and products [small volumes]

Founding Story

The villagers mainly depend on selling their milk through intermediate channels results, unjustifiable farm gate prices. Hence growth of socio-economic developments at rural house holds are negligible. Efforts of getting rid of middlemen by various institutions have failed due to market monopolies. The low consumption level of services such as education/health and inadequate food security gives very high malnutrition among the children are notable factors affect decent living. The poor services available for application of their day to day requirements in Dairy and Agro base activities the main factor inhibit their development growth. Hence we thought developing sustainable Livestock, Agriculture and ICT development activities at rural level is a vital factor for rural economic development.
