Hello Russell, I have been constantly traveling to speak on different forums. I have come back now. I will try to send the required information to Deepshikha. I have uninstalled WhatsApp as it was consuming my time a lot. I have posted our recent activities on our website. I will send more based on our future initiatives.
Hi Ashley, Thank you for your comment! Our livelihood programming is mostly to do with providing cattle. We can't expect farmers to work on alien skills. They are mostly illiterate and hence can be helped only with those options which they are good at. To be precise, we mostly give them goats and buffaloes. Most of the agriculture is dependent on the rain water. Rainfall is always uncertain and hence we give them cattle so that they can find alternative livelihood opportunities. I along with a team of our staffs and volunteers are leading this initiative. We have seen tangible impact of this initiative. Farmers are able to sustain their families and are encouraged. This has not only controlled the suicides among farmers but also given them hope and opportunity to come out of debts.
