Supporting and Empowering Small Farmers

By Atul Lekhra | Programme Incharge

"They say you can't make a living from farming, but I say doing anything else isn't really living." This is what Mohan believes. Born and brought up in extreme poverty, Mohan is a proud farmer trainee and father of 3, who has never received any formal education. Since childhood, all he knew was that he was a poor farmer - but he had an aim - he would not die poor; He would fight his own war. He would win his war.

He continued working hard and waited for the right opportunity. His dream took flight when Seva Mandir’s agricultural trainings started in his village. These trainings taught good agricultural practices to marginal farmers. Mohan started the training with full dedication and determination. He implemented these farming techniques with coriander cultivation and 4kgs of quality seeds that were provided by Seva Mandir to the village.

2 months after sowing the seeds, Mohan made around 15 trips to the market to sell the produce and made Rs 63,000 ($781). The monetary costs he incurred in the process were the cost of transportation and labor for cutting the coriander leaves.

This coriander cultivation encouraged Mohan, and he added cauliflower into his next crop cultivation. The cauliflower was also profitable and he made Rs 28,000 ($347) from a single harvest. 

Today Mohan is successful and selling his crops at a very good profit margin. He even became the role model for other members of his community.

A big thank you goes to you, our supporters. You are an integral part of this journey in providing sustainable livelihoods to underprivileged people and we are proud to be associated with you. Thank you for all your faith and continuous support to our programme. With only as little as $10 from you, 1 farmer family, like Mohan’s, will be able to set up a vegetable garden. Please consider donating once or monthly through: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/support-india-food-security/

Best wishes,

Regards

Atul Lekhra & the Seva Mandir Team
