Just Organik is an agriculture produce-oriented group that works primarily in Uttarakhand. The enterprise aims to make safe and healthy organic food more accessible and affordable for consumers, and to create sustainable wealth for farmers by motivating them to adopt organic farming practices. It works directly with more than 3,000 farmers and is certified to India Organic, USDA and EU organic standards.

COVID-19 Response

As Just Organik works with farmers in the far off Himalayan region and tough terrain of Uttarakhand, it was a challenge to provide access to basic healthcare. With the help of local administrations and frontline workers, it has been able to provide COVID-19 medication, thermometers, pulse oximeters and other basic equipment in various villages.

Some self-help groups were also roped in to produce triple layered masks that are child-friendly and can be reused. This effort has provided livelihood support and made masks accessible to marginalized communities.

COVID-19 has changed our vision for the world. Despite the forced social distancing, communities have come closer and globally people seem to have become more compassionate towards each other as every individual has been impacted. This is the silver lining in the whole pandemic.
