Challenge

In India over 450 million people are dependent on agriculture activities for livelihood. 90 % of agriculture work is dependent on rain fall. Each year villagers face severe financial problems due to short rain fall causing suicides. Ranga Reddy district in Telangana is worst affected district due to drought. The one option is to develop profitable allied business for them. Pipal Tree will provide training, financial assistance and support to women from 100 families to build a profitable business

Solution

Providing training and education for goat farming to women (breed and age identification, vaccination, first aid, de-worming, hygiene, feed and breeding). For women with one acre land provide training in silk production (mulberry plantation, creating basic structure for trays, day care, feeding, temperature control and selling). Provide financial assistance to set up goat farm and silk production business. Visit once a month to support, help sell produce, ensure profitability of the ventures

Long-Term Impact

This project will educate and build a profitable small scale businesses in goat farming and silk production for 100 women in villages. This will also help reduce dependency of their families on agriculture income, thereby avoiding financial distress at the time of drought. This will also help these 100 women to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
