The fruits from these trees help prevent malnutrition among women and children, and, sale of the excess fruits provide an alternate source of income for the villagers and farmers who plant and nurture these fruit trees.

Q) How to convert ₹ 2,100 to ₹ 50,000 in three years?
A) Help a small farmer plant 100 fruit trees.
As you may be knowing, Papaya and Bananas fruit in one years time, Guava, Lemon, Pomegranate take three and Custard Apple about five years to start fruiting.
Starting with Papaya and Bananas in the first year. by the third year, every fruit tree that you help plant will start yielding an average of 100 kg of fruit per year. And as we all know, farmers get about 20% of the price you and I pay when we buy it for our consumption. Even at a meager five rupees per kilo, each fruit tree you help plant will help the small farmer generate 500 ₹s per year, year on year, for the foreseeable future.
From the third year onward, the farmers in Bundelkhand who will plant and nurture these 100,000 fruit trees with your support of Rs 21 lacs, can realistically expect to earn Rs 5 CRORES a year for several years!
Simply put , one can count the number of seeds in an apple, but one can't count the number of apples in a seed!
