Jayaram played a very active role in AID US coordinating several multi-chapter projects and has been actively involved in a number of AID INDIA projects for several years. After moving to India in 2007 was an integral part of AID-India. He was involved in Eureka SuperKidz program, project management and research. AID-India has been working to improve the quality of education in Tamil Nadu over the last 15 years. AID-India’s Eureka SuperKidz program is a community focused education initiative providing quality education for more than 30000 children in 650 villages of Tamil Nadu. AID-India has also started programs in Agriculture and Health and has a vision for building model villages on a large scale through community based Education, Health and Livelihood programs.
From 2009 to 2013 he was researching livelihood projects across the country and worked on initiatives to create and improve livelihoods for the underprivileged, mainly small and marginal farmers. One of his passions was producer-company enterprises and how such collective enterprises have the potential for improving the lives of small and marginal farmers. Jayaram’s most recent effort was in setting up Experiment Farms where improved techniques for increased productivity and lowering input costs were compared against existing practices.
Jayaram is no longer a Jeevansaathi. He continues to work for social causes.
