■ Achievement Summary

Our hidden Eco-Hero is from a family of poor farmer.. Even though he is working for the betterment of the other needy and problematic people. Currently he is a member of Jay Nepal International. He worked in this organization very hard to bring change among the farmers who were destroyed by earthquake. Initially he led a team of more than 70 students from his university and conducted a rebuilding campaign under Jay Nepal International. During the period of a week each and every houses of that village was completely constructed. His good deeds don?t end here. After the rebuilding campaign he started an agriculture project in the village. He started with quality seed distribution program and conducted awareness training for vegetable cultivation and techniques of sustainable agriculture. After the success of that project he started mushroom cultivation campaign and involved more than 50 farmers of that village directly and all the farmers indirectly and encouraged all the farmers indirectly. He continued this program for 3 months. Later he also started a training of offseason tomato cultivation training in the village. He is so kind and down to earth person that he visited every houses of the village regularly during his project and raised awareness in the individual farmers. He also gave training on compost preparation, bio-fertilizer preparation and organic farming. He talked individually with the farmers to avoid the use of chemicals in the farm and its harmful effect in human, animals and sustainable production.
I personally respect his awesome work and I think hero like him must be awarded and encouraged for his grand work. Despite lack of resource and enough finance he has done fantastic job. The whole village respects him as a hero.

■  Future plan
He wishes to carry out these activities on future and sacrifice his whole life in social service and help of poor farmers. He is a true agriculturist. He can see his future clearly. He has no plan for himself but he wishes to open big farms where he can give employment to many youths and prevent the tradition of youth migration for job. I know he will succeed in the future for sure.
