Mission Statement

Our Mission: Adopt Poor Farmers and support them towards Sustainable Agricultural Development. Our Approach: Visit Farmers to review their self-sustenance ideas, provide counselling and suggest suitable options. Rather than one time donation, we support the farmers until they become self-sustain. Our Support Plan: Fund 90% for each Farmer’s self sustenance Idea and request the Farmer to contribute 10% to create responsibility. Our Goal: Develop a working model to make Poor Farmers self-sustain. Involve in Policy advocation at District or State level that supports small farmers.

Description

Our Story:
We have been seeing lot of farmer suicides in the news headlines and we thought "Can we do something to save Farmers", which led us to Adopt-A-Farmer initiative.

  • We believe that coming up with a good action plan is lot more worth than one time monetary donations and that’s where we all need to come together to serve this noble initiative.
  • A small start, but so far we supported 118 farmer families, across two states, 60% of them self-sustained and earning Rs. 5000 monthly income.
Next Steps...
  • LEAD - Livelihood Enhancement and Alternate (Livelihoods) Development Program to ensure every women farmer actively engages in a sustainable livelihood of her choice in order to ensure income security.
  • ADP: Agri-preneur Development Program to encourage, guide and support enterprising farmers to innovate and start an enterprise in Agri Ecosystem.
  • FaCE: Farmers’ Child Empowerment Program - Education, Skill Development, Employment and Counseling
  • CONNECT - Connecting farmer’s family to all the eligible Government and NGO programs
  • Scale and improve existing process to expand to other Villages, Mandals and Districts.
  • Work with local Organizations, Agricultural offices and Government
