Agriculture is the main source of our country. Farmer is the back bone of our country. Small hold farmers who produce the much of the world food are often the poorest farmers of the world . 75 percent of farmers live in rural areas. Improving agricultural prosperity can improve the lives of Millions of farmer and their families. To Empower small hold farmers Helping Hands has started it project – KRISHI SAHAYAK to lift farmers out of poverty by harnessing the power of technology , Distributing tool kits , Providing hand hold training , Providing awareness and training on Organic Farming .
We promote alternative natural farming methods to make farmers more self-reliant and to improve the environment and human health through increasing availability of organic produce. We believe that the shift from chemical to organic farming is the best way to ensure the sustainability of agriculture and food security. Through our Organic Farming program, we work closely with nearly 400 farmers cultivating 440 acres of food crops using 100% organic methods. Using cow dung, urine and other locally available organic material as alternatives to chemical inputs, farmers can considerably reduce their crop investment and increase profits. Each farmer starts with one acre and, seeing the benefits of the initiative, takes up organic farming on more land. We motivate and provide capacity building for farmers through regular group meetings, field visits, awareness camps, training programs and demo farms. We are also encouraging farmers to take up organic certifications and facilitating organic farmers with forward and backward linkages in sustaining and expanding organic farming.
