anisha is a project begun in 1998 in the slums of bangalore city, india, by ms. Valli rajan and a small group of dedicated humanitarian volunteers. It is a public charitable trust registered with the government of india. The word anisha means moving from darkness to light, and its work has always embodied that spirit. The original mission of anisha was to operate a community based preschool in one of bangalore citys worst slum districts. It has now shifted its focus to working in rural areas in an effort to slow the flight of families from impoverished areas in the countryside into the hugely overcrowded urban areas. Agricultural practices in much of the countryside have become so dependent on the use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers that the soil is often too depleted to sustain local village life. People are unable to make a living and must abandon their rural way of life for the tragedy of urban slum living. Anishas current rural agricultural project is focused on working with small, marginal farmers and landless families in the martalli region of the southern indian state of karnataka. It is supported by a grant from the german federal ministry for economic cooperation and development as well as by grants from our susila dharma nationals sdusa, sd germany, and in recent years from sd norway, sd netherlands, and sd britain.
