There are currently more than 1,00,000 farmers are living in our target villages. Although the state government is working diligently in these villages to encourage farming cultivation, due to the usage of chemical fertilizers in the past the land lost its fertility, and is demanding larger quantities of fertilizers/ costlier pesticides, the farmers are due to increased cost of farming, getting financial support from money lenders who are exploiting them, and forcing few to commit suicide.


SHEPHERD provides organic farming trainings/ awareness to replace costly chemical fertilizers by locally made Natural and Organic Fertilizers/Pesticides it reduces cost of production we will arrange Bank loan with low rate of interest/insurance.
