krushimitra

Covering a largely rural district, many of our beneficiaries come from farming communities and have been forced to seek our support due to the impact of drought or economic migration. Working with Fullerton India we are creating support groups of farmers to empower them to create sustainable farming practices.

 

How we help

 

Our Krushimitra (farmers' friends) team is a network of outreach workers who engage with and support our local farming communities. They approach farmers, and encourage them to work together through practical sessions, groups discussions, guest speakers, activities and training on sustainable and effective farming methods, water management and the use of technology in farm production methods.

The team also arranges residential courses for farmers at our Agricultural Training Center, exposure field visits to large-scale farms, industries and educational institutions and organises farmer fairs where communities can come together to share best practice and join or form their own cooperatives.

 

Who we help

Membership of our network is open to all farmers, if you are iterested please contact krushimitra@snehalaya.org.
