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.
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.
