What We Do

We are committed to free poor farmers from drought, poverty and distress; working a) through their organisations with emphasis on women and youth and b) promoting ecological farming and drought mitigation c) diversification of livelihoods with off-farm, non-farm and skill based employment / self-employment.

Participatory Approach

About 809 Sasya Mitra Groups (SMGs), translated as ‘Friends of Plants’, started small savings of Rs.50/- to Rs.100/- which was being used for lending small amounts of money to the needy members of the SMG. These small loans helped the members in meeting small but urgent expenses like the treatment of illnesses, paying children’s school fees, purchase of grocery.
