Welcome to Venu Madhuri

Venu-Madhuri Trust is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) to promote integrated, sustainable rural reconstruction.

We started in Feb 2000, from Ramanwadi village one of the isolated villages on Western Ghats In Radhanagri taluka of district Kolhapur, Maharashtra. Today, we are working at Ramanwadi,Bhari Bhambar,Ghosarwad,Khotwadi,Uttare.

Our work is to build Ramanwadi community into self-sufficient unit & help the community by providing know-how, inspiration, counseling, manpower, materials & funds. Today Ramanwadi has become a role model for other villages to follow.

Our Mission

We shall strive with sincerity, to promote integrated, sustainable rural development that is based on traditional, time-tested wisdom, which aims towards local self-sufficiency with special emphasis on preservation of indigenous breeds of cattle and which foster the highest human values.

We have taken one step towards preserving not only the Village Culture but also making it self sustainable. Another Step is requested from your side. You can extend your help by either associating with us, by buying our cottage industry products and by helping us financially.
