You helped keep his dream alive

Meet John, one of the farmers your donations helped to produce his own fertilizer from worms.

John’s five-acre farm in Magilambadi, Tamil Nadu, has been in his family for generations.  But his father always had to work as a teacher to supplement the farm income.

After his father’s death, John gave up his career in Mechanical Engineering to devote himself to turning the farm into a self-supporting enterprise.   Because of his passionate commitment to sustainable organic farming, customers would drive hours to buy his vegetables.

Like farmers throughout the region, John was hit hard by India’s lockdown last March, which dried up his markets.  Because he banks his own seeds, he was ready for the next planting, but he still needed to buy fertilizer, whose price has soared during the pandemic.  With the training, supplies, and equipment VOICE Trust provided, he was quickly able to create a rich vermicompost that produced an even healthier and more plentiful crop than the previous season.  

Every farmer’s situation is different, and each requires a unique solution.  A donation to support continuing COVID Recovery for Tamil Farmers will allow them to buy whatever they need most to make their farm thrive.
