Vanarai’s main objective of self – reliant village has succeeded in several villages. We have now, introduced the concept of reverse migration based on Gandhi & Philosophy. Back to Village. From such villages, nobody goes to cities in reach of employment. On the contrary, poor families from villages who had migrated to cities in-reach of employment have returned back to their own village. They earn more incomes, get better educational, medicinal & other basic facilities & lead a better quality life.
It was a herculean task. However, by involving people, Vanarai has already successed in achieving reverse migration in Gawadewadi (Pune District) Varandh (Raigad District of Konkan) & Zari (Latur District in Marathwada).
10 more villages are now progressing to achieve the – reverse migration.
