Our Story

Gramyumm is an initiative by SankalpTaru Foundation to uplift rural communities by providing them an online market link for selling their produce.

MISSION & VISION

We don’t just plant trees but also try our best to bring about socio-economic impact by the process of afforestation, reforestation and agroforestry.

  • Provide an alternate source of income to the farmers.
  • Build our rural India by increasing local economy.
  • Bring organic food products and indigenous handicrafts directly from the villages to the city people.

HISTORY

  1. Establishment of SankalpTaru

    With the establishment of SankalpTaru in 2012, the trees planted by us started bearing fruit. Many farmers from Ladakh were unable to sell their yield due to the difficult terrain. We helped them install solar dryers in their villages to dry out the fruit while maintaining its nutritional value. This increased their shelf life and made their transportation easier.

  2. Gifts to anyone who planted 10 or more trees with us

    We procured the whole yield from the farmers and sent them as gifts to anyone who planted 10 or more trees with us.

  3. Launch Gramyumm

    We started receiving requests from our donors for more of our products owing to its high quality. This motivated us to launch the platform Gramyumm for selling the produce online. With time, the list of items kept on increasing as we included our farmer beneficiaries from other states across India.

GramYumm helps the rural communities in overcoming the issue of market linkage. Since our products are directly from the villages, there are no middle-men involved and the profits reach straight to the farmers.

We believe in a circular economy where waste of one becomes food for the other. Our products are eco-friendly and we ensure that there is no use of wasteful and detrimental practices or harmful chemicals. We follow the 3-R approach of reduce, reuse and recycle.
