SAHONI

Vision for a Change...

Welcome To Sahoni, Assam

Tea Industry has been an integral part of Assam Agro Industry since the Britishers started plantation across Assam. In 1978, the then Agriculture Minister late Sonewar Bora initiated small tea gardens by the youth of Assam. This revolutionized and resulted in many farmers to become STGs (Small Tea Growers).

In this present scenario STGs produces a total of 50% of the tea production in Assam. But there are numerous problems been faced by the STGs from day to day. Many supporting bodies such as Tocklai Tea Research Centre, Small Tea Grower Association and the Tea Board of India are trying to help the STGs in all possible manners. We from Sahoni firmly believe that our effort would ensure the benefit of more than 25 hundred thousand people in Assam involved in this industry directly or indirectly. Improving the socioeconomic status of the STGs by increase in production, quality of produce and recognition would be the primary aim. Efforts for technical know-how, pest control and fertilizer usages would help STGs to realize that they would be able to become better tea growers and increase their plantations. This would also encourage the youth of Assam to become independent by being a STG himself. Generation of employment through directly and indirectly would increase resulting in self sufficiency.

Our efforts are to bring the highly unorganized STGs across the industry to a common platform, where they can get mutual benefits within the chain and increase productivity, profitability and communication. Such services would bring a massive change in the lives of the people in the rural and semi urban localities.
