Women and Child Development organising festival to boost organic culture in India: Maneka Gandhi

Vastavam web: The Women and Child Development Ministry is organising a festival next week to promote women organic farmers and entrepreneurs, Union minister Maneka Gandhi said. She said over 500 women entrepreneurs would be coming together from across the country with their organic products such as cereals, rice, pulses, skin-care products, fabric and jewellery. “The move aims to empower women to boost organic culture and promote women organic farmers and entrepreneurs,” she told reporters. Calling it a perfect example of how the festival is creating a revolution and making women self-reliant, a senior WCD official said for the first time, ‘the Vegan Project’ and food court with cooked-on-site delicacies will also be available.
