AID INDIA wants to present a new project: a social farm that will help support the activities and projects carried out in the School, in the Ave Maria Center and in the orphanage Island of Hope at Virudhunagar.
AID INDIA has undertaken the foundation work for this. The available resources are
LAND, WATER, ELECTRICITY AND TRACTOR.
The idea is to create a beautiful space with animals, fruit and vegetable plantations. This will especially help the girls who live in the orphanage and will be a work opportunity for some boys once they have finished their studies.
we are happy to share this news with you and soon we will give you more information about the project!
Here are some photos of the land to work on, the precious source of water, and a structure that will be arranged and made habitable!
URGENT NEED TO PROCEED FURTHER WITH THIS PROJECT
We need a rotavtor to prepare the land for cultivation. For each crop like paddy, groundnut, banana, cotton this is needed permanently. We have tractor. The picture of the machinery and the price list given by the company is displayed here. Interested persons may kindly support us to buy the basic machinery. The Machinery costs INR 98500.00. It is about 1270 euro. About 1500 USD.
For fixing 2 tube-well motors we need INR 40000.00 each. One pump-set costs nearly 500 euro. In USD it costs $615. Since the cost depends on the distance between the power point and tube-well point the exact details of price would be sent after fixing to the donor.
