80G tax benefits for INR donations

SMIDS is working with over 500 women through a Moringa Project in 11 Coastal Panchayat (Villages) in Tirunelveli District. IFAD is supporting project to offer Training and technical support services for the women. The women have formed JLG (joint Liability Group) of 5 members each and are trying to cultivate Moringa. SMIDS has entered into agreement with 7 Companies to help sell the women farmers produce.

Each women will Cultivate 2700 Moringa Trees in 50 cents (0.2023 Hectare) of land and they need 1 kilo of Moringa Seed for the same. Seed cost 1500 Rupees per Kilo. For 500 women that would be 750,000 Indian Rupees.  We are requesting donors to support at least 50 % of this cost. Women are borrowing money for other expenses of starting a farm. Your Help can give hope to 500 families in coastal villages of Tirunelveli District, Tamil Nadu, India
