Mission: Braj Foundation is dedicated to the all round development of Braj - the culturally vibrant region associated with the legend of Sri Radha-Krishna, one of the most celebrated divine couples in Hindu mythology. ‘Braj’ spans across three States of modern India; Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, portions of Bharatpur district of Rajasthan and Palwal district of Haryana. The Foundation’s efforts, which began with restoration of age old water retention tanks, commonly called ‘kund’s, have now spread to the revival of ‘sacred’ groves or ‘van’s, regeneration of around 18000 acres of hilly terrain or ‘Parvat’s into lush-green pasture lands, and resurrection of River Yamuna. Simultaneously, the Foundation is making several interventions in areas like organic farming, dairy industry, rural education, employment etc. towards the realization of its broader mandate; to reinstate Braj as an ideal rural society.
Geographic areas served: Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan

Ways to make it better...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
