Climate-smart farmers and the fruits of their labour

Climate-smart women farmers
Climate-smart women farmers

We are thrilled to report that despite the considerable impact of Covid-19 during 2020, Sridhar and his wife and hundreds of other farmers have started reaping the fruits of their labour. Our partner, Kheyti will help them to receive the best price for their harvest and secure the income necessary to continue feeding their families.

Your generous donations are delivering these positive outcomes. Please be sure to donate as much as you can today and know that you are changing their lives for the better !

Greater empowerment for poor women farmers 

We are also thrilled to report that following the launch of smaller, more affordable climate-smart greenhouses, more and more poor women farmers are also beginning to benefit. Together with our partner, we hope to provide 500 women farmers during 2021 with the climate-smart greenhouses. These will help them to take charge of their farming lives as well as feed their families with greater certainty. 

Women farmers, like Reshma, are provided the introduction, training and support to help them start using their greenhouses to produce healthy crops even in the smallest of farms and in the harshest of conditions. 

The prospect of equipping another woman farmer with her own greenhouse for life is now more affordable than ever before. With every donation of just $500 we can help another family to prosper from sustainable and climate friendly farming. 

The plight of women farmers 

To help provide context for the efforts on the ground and to place a value on your generous donations, we can report that 75% of all women across rural India are farmers. They diligently and passionately pursue their farming heritage despite receiving little or no help from others. They strive to feed their families, nurture their children and protect their farms despite considerable hardships, having no rights to the land they till while receiving little or no help from others. 

With the help of your generous and continued support, our partner, Kheyti's unstinting efforts on the ground, these women farmers are improving their farming practices, establishing their own sustainable livelihoods and gaining equality amongst their peers. 

Please continue to support and follow their journey towards greater prosperity
