Being Self-Reliant is the need of the hour. As pointed out by our Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the COVID-19 crisis has made our nation self-reliant. Before the beginning of the crisis, we were dependent on other nations for PPE kits but now we as a nation are capable of producing our own PPE kits locally. It shows our potential to not just self-sustain ourselves but also extend support to others in need.
Keeping this in mind, Tinkerly has come up with an innovative #VocalforLocal Campaign to show its support for all the local brands which are continuously making a difference. Through this initiative, we wish to motivate local brands to come up with solutions so that we can grow as a nation.
Given below are some of the local brands from different sectors who are working very well and for whom we must be vocal about
It is India’s largest and most trusted online donation platform which has joined hands with many organizations to raise funds for the most hit segment of the society of poor underprivileged families due to the COVID-19 crisis. With the help of this non-profit organization’s enormous support, these poor families get proper rations and sanitation kits that have helped them to cope up better during this crisis.
We need to make people aware of these types of local brands which are doing so well for our country in tough times.
Agrowave is an innovative Indian local brand based out of Gurugram, Haryana founded by Anu Meena with a vision to transform farmer’s life by buying fruits and vegetables directly from the farmers and making its distribution directly to the businesses. It offers good prices to farmers who sell their produce. Its vision is to optimize the agricultural supply chain with the help of doing research and using innovative technologies. It provides On-time home delivery to the customers with the help of using tech-enabled logistics.
The goal is to empower the farmers by eliminating the middleman between the farmers and businesses and directly connects them to the marketplace.
Thus by buying fruits and vegetables from Agrowave, we are supporting farmers who are struggling in lockdown due to the COVID-19 crisis. This sustainable supply chain model used by Agrowave will be very helpful for making the agricultural markets more robust and resilient for the present crisis as well as post-COVID -19 scenarios.
