    Village sustainability is the key to a healthy and harmonious community.

    Village sustainability and ladies empowerment are interlinked, and both aspects have top priority and are at the core of all village development projects

    Peaceful villages evolve to creatively prosperous towns, which in turn sustain a nation.
    Over the years the Makaibari Joint Body has initiated many projects for village sustainability.
    The first step towards this was initiated over two decades ago by having lady supervisors, on a trial basis. The first year results proved unequivocally that ladies were more responsible and all aspects of their performances were much more productive than their male colleagues.

    Today, the Makaibari village homestays are the icing in the cake which enables the ladies to have an income away from the tea, from their own homes visitors from all over the globe, arrive in droves throughout the year to experience this unique cross cultural offering.

    The new sustainability projects, in particular for renewable energies, start from rainwater harvesting projects, to capturing run of the stream for micro hydroelectric plant, till bio-methanation for the next future.
    The already started rainwater harvesting, would ensure the minimum quantity of water for all for their day to day ablutions, as well as  provide the purest potable water. The factory roof provides the collection space, and the run off leads to a storage and purifying system that ensures that the stored water is of high quality when used a few months later. Plans are afoot to procure the necessary funds to ensure that all Makaibari villages have adequate water when most needed, during droughts.

    "Soils constitute the foundation of vegetation and agriculture. Forests need it to grow. We need it for food, feed, fiber, fuel and much more."
