Farming Communities

Empowerment initiatives for farmers are pivotal in our mission. Through collaborative efforts and specialized programs,
we equip farmers with knowledge, tools, and resources for sustainable agriculture. Our initiatives encompass training on modern techniques like the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), organic cultivation methods, and the conservation of traditional varieties. Additionally, we support Farmer Producer Companies, fostering collective strength and market access. By empowering farmers with these skills and avenues, we aim to enhance their resilience, economic standing, and overall well-being while promoting a more sustainable agricultural ecosystem.
