WADI project is  NABARD funded Tribal Development Programme(TDP) started in 2008 at Rajnagar Block of Birbhum District and in 2014 at Saltora block of Bankura district which aims at promoting sustainable livelihoods for tribal communities and enhancing their income security. “Wadi” means a "small orchard’ covering one or two acres. This project intends to promote orchard development among the tribal communities. It is envisaged as family-centric agriculture where the emphasis is on small landholdings (1-2 acres), agrobiodiversity, and greater participation of women and family farming. This initiative refers to eliminate the livelihood problems of the tribal families. The targeted families are empowering themselves towards better livelihood through small orchard formation by nurturing cashew, jack fruit and mango plants in an organic way. It provides beneficiaries the basic information and advantages of orchard farming, organic farming, as well as microfinance for marketing the products.

Total 1500 families are involved in this project.
