The Success Mantra – Community Participation

There are about 180 Kudumbasree units in Kumarakom, each of which has an average of 30 members. All these units have joined hands with the Responsible Tourism programme. The 10 farmers’ groups consisting of 450 members and the 612 homes involved in homestead farming also play a part. Altogether, about 2000 families take part in the RT activities.

All the RT initiatives are planned in such a way that they engage various industries in the region, people, NGOs, media, academicians, communities and local administration. Small production units like the Kudumbasree and the Harithasree, homestead farmers, farmers’ groups, various cultural and environmental groups and clubs are also involved. The programmes coordinated by the local bodies under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) are clubbed with the RT activities.
