Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

After Cyclone Aila in May 2009, Saathi Revathi has trained farmers in this region to revive agriculture using inexpensive organic methods. The last training was done to equip farmers to become trainers themselves. In this project, trainer farmers are training an average of 20 other farmers and meticulous data is being kept.





Please fill





1) Being able to revive agriculture on salinated lands using inexpensive organic methods. 2) Restore some amount of self-reliance of small farmers on bio-inputs that do not have to be bought. 3) Taking the organic methods to a campaign level where after a certain momentum, it could sustain itself.
