A Comprehensive Governance Platform that integrates functions of all economic sectors with life cycle needs of all citizens.
Techno-Village is a unique rural employment initiative by MGRM Inc. This multi-faceted initiative address the physical, social and psychological dimensions of development of individuals & society.
Most nations worldwide face a chronic issue of rural under-development and stagnant growth, that triggers mass urban migration, slum creation, unemployment and poor living conditions all of which affect the entire state, and neighboring states in the process.
In general, agricultural produce abundance rarely translates to good agribusiness models that help develop communities. Tourism products are rarely recognized as community tourism opportunities and hence often remain underdeveloped. Artisanal cuisine, handicraft, and handloom have stagnated, along with various cultural & heritage assets. Industrially important raw materials are exported to neighboring states at very low costs, often leading to exploitation rather than empowerment of the producers.
In the midst of immense opportunities, we find poverty, illiteracy, poor health and nutrition, unskilled workforce, underemployment & unemployment, all of which often led to a cycle of intergenerational poverty and disenfranchisement.
A core aspect of MGRM Techno-Village Initiative is a detailed study of rural cluster at district, county, parish and state levels, to identify core strengths, available raw materials, traditional and new industry skills, and factors that influence them. This study is conducted concomitantly with a study of core social issues (market access, unemployment, skills deficit and others), psychological issues (like substance abuse, behavioral risks etc.) and various physical dimension / health issues.
The final solution is a custom Techno-Village Initiative that seeks to develop youth and women folks, artisans, and others, while leveraging local resources towards development of advanced medical, culinary, agro-business, tourism, and allied products and services.
An ideal Techno-Village Initiative spans at least several large districts encompassing thousands of villages within them. A typical solution would encompass a Hub and Spoke model. Components of the solution vary and may involve Product & Services Development, Design Studio, Exhibition & Sale Centers, Automation Infrastructure that aids in entrepreneurship development leading to tiny / micro / small industry, among others.
Techno-Village Initiative outcomes saliently include:
