One Village India
The motivation behind this type of development is to provide innovative economic opportunities in rural India that were previously unavailable. Large urban centers are perceived to be the only avenue to prosperity, but many young people who flock to these areas in search of a better life are met with disappointment. What they encounter are slums, unemployment and poverty.
Each Village will have a circular formation, with the diameter of the circle being dependent on the population of each individual location. The program of a typical village includes K-12 learning environments, vocational training, workshops, residences, agricultural land, sports and a market. The market will sell produce and products developed by the students of the village. The market will also provide a stepping stone to help the graduates establish themselves as entrepreneurs in the area where they are born; increasing the appeal of staying close to family and away from large urban centers.
