Social Story – When RBL Bank interns visited us

One a hot June day, 32 management interns from RBL Bank visited our Valsad project villages to understand our work with small farmers and bees. RBL Bank supports the project here, and the interns received a first-hand view of the program’s objectives and progress made on various fronts.
