Every monthly donation helps more farmers like Damodar
Damodar Sahariya hails from a backward tribe in the district of Jhansi. With an annual income in between Rs. 10,000 and Rs. 15,000 from non-timber forest produce, he barely managed to provide members of his family of two, with a meal per day.
Hartika provided Sahariya with saplings of fruits and vegetables, along with bio-pesticides, bio-fertilizers, fencing plants, intercropping plants among other materials to aid him in the farming process. The organization also has taken care of the cost of tiling Sahariya's land.
Owing to assistance from Hartika, Sahariya was able to increase his annual income to INR 35,000 and send his children to school.

Vegetable Cultivation: A Way towards Prosperity of disadvantaged farmers of Bundelkhand
HARITIKA is working on Sustainable Livelihood Promotion through Horticulture Promotion (Wadi Development) with tribes, marginalized & most disadvantaged farmers and communities. Besides Agriculture, these farmers don’t have any option other than daily activities like: labour work, collection of tendu patta etc. for their livelihood so no one is being interested in a long term project like Horticulture Promotion as it will not give them any short term benefits. That's why HARITIKA has proposed a Vegetable cropping project to these farmers. We provide them vegetable saplings of vegetables like: Bitter gourd, bottle gourd, tomato and lady fingers to be sown on the field in the spaces between wadis of worth 3200 INR each for acre. Some farmers also adopt multi layer vegetable cropping either through machan or mandav system. After first support from HARITIKA ,farmers’ start to buy seeds from their own money as from vegetable cultivation in such a remote area where vegetables are not available and easily they are able to earn 1000-2000 INR weekly by selling their vegetable in daily/weekly bazaar. Along with the vegetables they also take care of their Horticulture wadis with interest. So with this support for " Poor farmers with free saplings" HARTIKA and our donors have definitely bring positive change in life of these disadvantaged communities.

Our Project villages are tribal dominated villages and we are already implementing Wadi development project in these villages with the support of NABARD but and it will take long time to provide benefit. For motivating tribes to be involved in any activity there is need of selecting activities that can provide them immediate monetary benefit. Therefore under the donation support from Give India, we have provided vegetable saplings like Bottle gourd, Brinjal, tomato, Bitter gourd etc. for 1 acre of land worth INR 3200 to each beneficiary family. In this year with the donation support of Give India Foundation, we have supported farmers for vegetable and fruit cultivation. These farmers were from Kupiya, Pipariya and Patna village of Buxwaha Block of Chhatarpur District. We have planned to extend our this initiative with other farmers so that this vulnerable group can be supported.
Story from the field
Mr. Kamlesh Saur is 49 years old. He lives at Pipariya Kala village which is a tribal dominated village in Buxwaha Block of Chattarpur district. Mr. Kamlesh Saur, head of the family along with his wife Gumna and 17 year old son Hakke studying in XII std and his 14 year old daughter Ajna in IX std. He was married at the age of 18 years. To support his living he has two goats and to meet every day expense and family needs, he and his wife work on lands to bring in income. Mr. Kamlesh was somehow able to acquire 1 acre of land and started sowing seeds under our Wadi development program. After seeing his dedication and poor financial condition we have decided to help him out in inter cropping too, Thus with donor support we have provided vegetable and fruit saplings like Bottle-gourd, Brinjal, Tomato, Bitter-gourd, Mango, Guava etc. for 1 acre of land worth INR 3200 to Kamlesh Saur s/o Dammu Saur of Pipariya Kala village. Now he is devoting his full time to protect fields from attack of wild animals and taking proper care of his fields. In the early days, Kamlesh survived their daily life as bonded labourer working inland or as a construction worker. During his early-childhood days, he was unable to go to school but now he makes sure that none of his child should be deprived of education. He felt proud to be part of this project and happy with the output and cultivation practices and also decided to help out in preparing organic manure to sell at low cost among the community people. He seems very happy and contented.
