Project Vriddhi endeavours to mitigate the widely prevalent issue of stubble burning by putting stubble to alternative, commercially viable uses. The Project functions under four verticals namely Tabdeel, Shilpkari, Nirmaan, and Restove.


NIRMAAN- Under Nirmaan, we establish toilets using stubble boards, to solve the problem of open defecation. The eco-friendly and cost-effective toilets generate revenue depending on per user and day basis, accounting for a substantial income for our entrepreneurs.

SHILPKARI- Shilpkari puts stubble to use in making eco-friendly, durable, and creative handicrafts like cutlery, lamps and paper bags, etc. It aims to revive the handicrafts industry while also empowering underprivileged women.

TABDEEL- Tabdeel is concerned with the utilization of stubble for mushroom cultivation, which is an untapped and highly profitable industry.

RESTOVE- Restove aims to curb indoor air pollution by establishing small-scale biogas production units revolving around innovative barrel/IBC based technology using stubble as input replacing the red brick chulhas used in rural households.

Sustainability and Scalability:

  • In Tabdeel we have collectivized farmers into an FPO so that they can benefit from government schemes. This makes the farmers independent, running all operations. Tabdeel aims to add more farmers under the plan by expanding to other parts of Northern India.
  • Under Shilpkari our women entrepreneurs are taught proper handicraft manufacturing and assembly skills. We plan to establish the machinery at various sites and organize our entrepreneurs into SHGs. Through collaborations with other women communities, we plan to add 40 more women entrepreneurs, taking the total count to 90.
  • Nirmaan follows a by the community for the community model where a local entrepreneur is employed to look after the washrooms in the long run. For Nirmaan we aim to make 7 washrooms by July 2022 in different slums, post which we will collaborate with umbrella pan-India organizations.


  • $ 9,500 revenue generated through nirmaan
  • $ 11,210 revenue generated through Shilpkari
  • $  revenue generated through Tabdeel
  • $  revenue generated through Restove

Major events organised

Enactus Hansraj works on social entrepreneurship to carve a more  sustainable world for us all. In 2020, the team emerged as National  Champions amongst 90 competing teams and reached the Top 4 stage in  the World Cup. Continuing this feat, the team has also qualified for the final  stages of the Race for Climate Action where our project bagged the second  position globally. 
Through its 3 running projects – Vriddhi, Ahsaas and Armaan, the society  has positively impacted hundreds of lives in the past year. Project Vriddhi  established its first stubble-to-biogas plant with Enactus Munich. The team  conceptualised an endeavour of introducing a new sustainable product line  from crop residue and stubble that was successfully fulfilled by them. Project  Ahsaas is working to engage the differently abled in e-bike delivery services  and empower them financially. A wide variety of products manufactured by  the differently abled were also launched under the project. Project Armaan  has launched a unique de-addiction portal for drug addicts across the  country, it has now expanded its horizons further and is functioning under  the umbrella of mental health as well. 
Amidst the pandemic we also engaged in multiple micro-projects, thereby  distributing masks, face shields, sanitizers, and cooked meals to 500+  families in partnership with organisations like Zomato Feeding India. We also  launched a covid video series in collaboration with social education and  liberty foundation to generate awareness.  
Staying in tandem with the very spirit of Enactus and impacting a myriad of new communities, we introduced a new department ‘Social Innovation’ this  year. Since its inception the department has done wonders and taken up  initiatives like establishing 10+ shelters for stray dogs out of upcycled barrel  waste, conducting a plogging drive in the North Campus area, organising a fun-filled Parents' Day programme for the elderly. This year we also impacted  the lives of the 3 unemployed women in Bhilai, Chhattisgarh by generating  employment opportunities in the field of stitching and upcycling clothes.
