With a number of uncertainties and risks prevailing in agriculture businesses, a huge number of farmers are leaving their farmlands and migrating to cities. Agriculture is no more an attractive source of earning as there is no guarantee of income. Hence, to bring a positive change in this situation, the Delivering Change Foundation (DCF) and Agrowon have developed the idea of ‘Delivering Smart Villages’.

A Smart Village will have the strength to transform the rural landscape and give a new direction to the village. It will have the ability to encompass both economical as well as social activities. The objective of the Delivering Smart Villages is to retain the unique culture, business, produce and yield prospering along with all facets of development. With expert guidance from the Israeli firm, JETHRO, the income of farmers from the agricultural yield will increase manifold. Basic facilities like roads, power, health, and education will be a reality via the Delivering Smart Villages project.
