Having taken many projects, NITIE has a part of Enactus community since 2005. Enactus-NITIE has undertaken following projects in the past:
Project Chatr which aims to start mushroom cultivation at KhambachaPada, Mumbai. The project was selected keeping in mind the ground realities. Khambacha pada is a house to 81 tribal families. People here are farmers. Due to paucity of water crops can be grown only during monsoon. For other 6 months of the year people do daily wage labor to earn their living. Selling forest produce, gardening, construction laborers and the like are the common activity that see them through during the non-monsoon season. This leads to inconsistent and unsteady source of income for the families. We have identified a 8 member team from the village, on the basis of their financial condition and intent to work on this project. An intensive training program for mushroom cultivation will be provided by a reputed agriculturist. Also market has been identified to sell the yield thereby securing the demand for the produce.
