ABOUT US

Agarakshak is a project that has the main goal of paying tribute to the hardworking salt-farming community residing in the Kutch area of Gujarat. This community is most commonly known as "Agariyas", which literally means "the one who farms". The Agariyas are a community of hardworking villagers who produce over 30% of India's entire salt produce from the Little Rann of Kutch. For decades now, this community has been working on the salt field tirelessly under harsh climatic and social conditions. Despite this , they are getting underpaid for their services with almost little recognition from the society . We at Agarakshak are aiming to build up a community that can help our unsung warriors in climbing up the societal stairs .
