Naandi is a fruit-tree planting programme to grow food and increase yields and income for 25,000 farmers in 250 tribal villages in Andhra Pradesh, east India, where the disappearance of forests and the extensive cultivation of bare soil has resulted in a significant drop in soil fertility. Its 360 application gives peasant farmers with a mobile, access to the exact price of products without the need to travel. It was a product of the €33 million Livelihoods Fund, a Europe HQ-ed fund that invests in partner NGOs to help local communities restore and maintain functional ecosystems, for their own good, for the sake of environmental quality and to fight against climate change.
