SRISTI PROJECT OVERVIEW
At Sristi, we empower our members with training and skills that will enable them to lead a more dependent and dignified life. Our methodology combines education, life skills training and agriculture.
On an 8.93-acres of land we have created an inclusive and holistic environment that we lovingly call Sristi Village. Sristi Foundation runs 3 pioneer projects: Sristi Village, Sristi Special School and Sristi Farm Academy as well as further community support and environmental projects.
Through these projects marginalised individuals are given the opportunity to learn, grow and become independent whilst being provided with nutritious food, shelter and a loving & supportive environment.

Sristi Village is an inclusive residential community which offers marginalised individuals and people with intellectual disabilities the chance to live, learn, work, and generate income.
In a supportive and loving environment, our Sristi Village members learn how to manage and work an eco-farm gaining employable skills whilst regenerating the environment and feeding our community.
We run a Special School for the children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities from rural areas,. The school offers education & training that aims to develop the pupils into self-reliant individuals.
Since 2013 we have been reclaiming what once was dry and infertile land through projects such rain water harvesting, sustainable farming and agro-forestry.
