28th & 29th March, 2018: AMYAA NGO in collaboration with IIT, Guwahati, Quest Alliance, Bengaluru and District Administration organized its third workshop in the start-up incubation series, ‘MISSION ROING: Entrepreneurship workshop to foster start-up culture for social innovation and skill development with education’ on Agri-business Development from March 28th and 29th at Mayu-II Rehko Hall, Roing.
R K Paul Chawang, Secretary of AMYAA NGO welcomed the participants and outlined the objectives of the workshop. He highlighted socio-economic constraints like low produce holding capacity of farmers, lack of storage warehouse and absence of organised marketing system/growers which forced them to sell their produce through commission agents at a marginal price.
The workshop was organized with the objective of interacting with the farmer’s club members to understand the crop production system and marketing system of their produce and subsequently develop strategies to deal with those challenges under the guidance of Dr Charu Monga, Assistant Professor (Design and Entrepreneurship) and Dr Harsh Chaturvedi, Assistant Professor (Energy) and Mr Shiv Mishra, Agribusiness consultant (Kolkata). The workshop was attended by SHG members and Farmer club members of Lower Dibang Valley District.
