Founded by 3 IIT Kharagpur alumni, Back to Village (B2V) is a non-profit organization focused on Agriculture based Rural Development working in the direction of making villages prosperous & self-reliant.
A group of three young professionals having vast experience in Social (Agriculture & Rural Development) and corporate sectors, started its operation in 2013 from southern part of Odisha and later extended to other parts of Odisha. B2V decided to work dedicatedly in this area with the underprivileged rural and tribal communities, particularly in Agriculture & allied sectors for improving the sectors which form basis of the country as even after 65 years of independence, a large population of India has still no access to the very basic necessity of life like quality food, drinking water, cloth, sanitation, house, and education etc.
B2V believes that the way to improve condition of rural & tribal communities which accounts more than 60% of the total population of the nation, is through creating livelihood opportunities centric to Agriculture & associated activities, enhancing their earning capability and facilitating basic necessity in the village. Aligned to this, B2V has chosen following sectors to work on:
- Agriculture: Developing and Introducing locally suitable Natural and Organic Farming methods/practices and to increase productivity and profitability.
- Agri-Allied: Promotion of various Agriallied activities and its integration with Agriculture.
- Livelihood: Promotion of Agro associated Micro/Small scale Enterprises, respective Skill Development and Employment of skilled workforce.
