Empowerment of Farmers

Stabilising tribal farmers through climate resilient, economically viable and sustainable agriculture

Empowerment of Farmers Programme equips farmers appropriately and adequately for converting their challenges into opportunities, without compromising the ecology of the space, where a blend of traditional and modern practices in horticulture, floriculture and rice production are followed.

Economic conditions of the farmers are a really poor due to various reasons. Agriculture being the major occupation of almost all the rural areas, the issue is humongous and needs immediate attention. Problems such as scarcity of water for irrigation in non-monsoon months, and lack of knowledge in appropriate farming techniques add to their woes. Documented in recent history are cases of farmer suicide in nearby due to inability to repay loans taken on account of good agricultural produce throughout the year.

Our efforts focus on making a paradigm shift in the perception towards farming and the people involved in this occupation.
