Regional Horticulture Promotion Project, 2010

The Regional Horticulture Promotion Project in historically agrarian Kalimpong is transforming agriculture from an activity that barely ensured sustenance to a potentially profitable one and encouraging the return of many local residents to their farming roots.

Lack of systematic farming methods, the role played by middle men and encroachment of products from nearby cities has detrimentally affected the farmers of Kalimpong and their earnings. To address this issue, Dr. Graham’s Homes School in association with Miyazaki International Volunteer Centre (MIVC) a Japanese NGO, with support from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) started the Regional Horticulture Promotion Project (RHPP) in 2009.
