Challenge

Rajanpur is the poorest among 35 districts of Punjab (MICS 2003-04 and PSLM & HIES 2004-05). Agriculture is only source of income for 85% rural population; where per capita income remains at $ 8.7 per month. Flood has damaged 75 % cotton crops (355,984 acres). 42% rural population is landless mostly comprising of cottonpicker women and landless tenants. This year tenants have lost 3-4 month earning because flood water washed away cotton fields. Govt. aid is only for legally documented landowners

Solution

Artists have already identified landless cotton picker women and tenants from villages of Dist. Rajanpur. Artists will give cash donations to identified cotton pickers and tenants. The cash amount is equal to wages they earn during one crop season.

Long-Term Impact

Project will give cash donations to 500 tenants families who will deprived off from Govt. Aid. Moreover, aid recipients will develop handicrafts and souvenirs for selling. Raised money added to fund. Exercise will continue till each family get money
