The main objective of the organization is to promote awareness regarding the issue of farmer suicides, help the families of the victims and fund projects that will help farmers build a sustainable means of livelihood.
In short term:
We will help widows of the farmers who did not get any government help. This is actually an investment to help these ladies stand on their own feet and become entrepreneurs who can lead their family out of poverty.
In mid term:
We are actively working with experts on the ground to identify issues that can be addressed in a year’s time. We are investigating how much of the debt of farmers is due to seed and fertilizer costs. We are interested in partnering with NGOs in India to identify 8-10 families in distress under debt burden and help them with technology, financial assistance as well as government schemes to reduce the debt.
In long term:
We are keen to expand into Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka with some of the successful ideas that we are implementing in Maharashtra. We also wish to partner with more NGOs, apply for corporate grants and increase the reach and scale of our fundraisers. We are working on rural skill development as well as counselling farmers to empower them with knowledge.
