UPDASP – Uttar Pradesh Diversified Support Project
Grameen Foundation India embarked on a new venture with Uttar Pradesh Diversified Support Project (UPDASP). Acting as a Cluster Based Business Organization, Grameen Foundation India is promoting Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) in Uttar Pradesh through UPDASP. UPDASP serves as the implementing agency for the Government of Uttar Pradesh under the central sector scheme of Formation and Promotion of 10,000 Farmer Produce Organizations (FPOs). The aim is to bring together small, marginal, and landless farmers into FPOs, enhancing their economic stability and market connections for improved income along with motivating them for organic farming . With UPDASP’s support, five FPOs in Badaun and Shahajahanpur are in the process of becoming self-sufficient business entities, targeting to aggregate 300+ small and marginal landowners in each.
