The UrbanMali Network is a gardening enterprise that sets up and maintains garden across Bangalore city. The gardeners empowered within this initiative are all rural farmers who are given a better livelihood and opportunity to put their skills to use within city gardens. We provide employment for these gardeners on a regular basis. They don’t have to look for other jobs and will have gainful employment always. Additionally, we also pay them higher rates than any other jobs, providing them a dignified employment option which makes them confident of being able to pay back their debts and living a better life within the city.
UrbanMali not only provides these farmers with employment opportunities, we will also create a fraternity of gardeners who have the benefit of availing small loans by way of micro finance options. These small loans can be used to pay back agricultural debts, provide education for their children and healthcare for their family members. The fraternity of gardeners would be like a family unit that supports each other in different ways.
Come meet our gardeners…..
