Support a poor tribal farmer with seeds

Impact

Every monthly donation empowers more women like Kalki bai

Kalki Bai is a widowed farmer from Surajgarh village. Owing to the poor quality of her crop she could never sell her produce at a good price. This, in turn, meant that she never had enough money to buy seeds.

RBKS provided her with seeds, and constructed a Vermi-compost unit on her field. She was provided training on producing the compost. Exposure trips were conducted for a first-hand experience. Production on her land increased by 25%. She sells her produce at a good price and is able to purchase certified seeds. She also uses the vermin compost from her own unit. She is an expert in seed selection and vermicomposting.

A small intervention like this can transform a life and enhance the quality of our agricultural produce.

Program Description

RBKS works with poor and marginal farmers under their food security program. Farmers are provided with seeds & vermicompost and are also trained in preparing vermicompost. This activity helps the whole family as both men and women are engaged in farming.

Male members of the family work during sowing and mulching, but the day-to-day care of the crops is done by women. RBKS field workers select beneficiaries based on economic background. The farmers are trained to prepare the compost and its benefits by agriculture experts before and after the sowing of the field. The progress is tracked on a weekly basis. Farmers are one of the worst cared communities. It is important for us as a nation to take care their needs to grow as a better crop.

Addressing impact of COVID-19 on people’s livelihoods, their health and food security.

Activities and work undertaken in the last 5-6 months

There is no productive work opportunity available in the village, food security is also not available. Fresh vegetables are very important for everyone during the Covid-19 time and in tribal areas access to fresh vegetables is very rare. Malnourishment is a big problem in this area.The team provide seasonal seeds to grow in their empty land or farm. One time provided seeds provide at least 2 months’ vegetables. Our beneficiaries grow vegetables and crops on their farm and eat fresh green vegetables. This ensures they access nutritious food. The remaining vegetable and crops they sell in the market, which provides them income generation. So in this way, we ensure food security and income generation for beneficiaries through this programme.


Challenges faced and next steps

The pandemic has been affecting the entire food system and farmers are at high risk in the tribal-rural area. The food security and nutrition of women and men are under threat, with low-income families, particularly the most marginalized populations, which include small-scale farmers and indigenous peoples, being hardest hit. Border closures, trade restrictions are preventing farmers from accessing markets, thus disrupting domestic food supply chains and reducing access to healthy, safe and diverse diets.To solve all these problems, the organization distributed seeds to all the beneficiaries and distributed dry ration packets to the needy at the extreme level. Along with this, the farmers were connected to the main market and provided the facility of vegetable and crop selling without travelling.Even by exchanging vegetables and fruits with grains like wheat, rice pulses, women found a solution to their food security problem.We will continue providing seeds to our beneficiaries.


Stories from the ground

Basanti Bai is also from a poor family like other beneficiary families. The income of her house is also less and the sources of income generation are also less. In such a situation, Basanti was linked to this program by the organization. Under this program, regular seeds are given to Basanti. She was also given vermicompost so that her crops and vegetables would grow well and in more quantity. Now she eats fresh vegetables and after taking out vegetables separately for her family, the remaining vegetables and crops go to sell through organization or herself to nearby people and in the market, from which she earns a good income. With that money, she can spend money on her children's education and health.

Story from the field


This campaign will benefit tribal women for vegetable cultivation. In the tribal area the people are very unaware about their health and Source of income. The income of the tribal women can increase through selling the vegetable to market by vegetable cultivation and the health will also improve by the consumption of the generic vegetables so that they get proper nutrition and are not anemic to any disease.
About 500 farmers are successfully cultivating vegetables and getting a good yield due to adoption of organic farming. Almost all of them have vermi compost yards which were supplying them organic manure for their vegetable plantation farms. The lush green fields are extending over Southern Rajasthan success stories of tribal farmers.
The vegetable plantations were spread in 140 acres in Southern Rajasthan benefiting more 500 Farmers
Main objective
The Vegetable Cultivation is stepping stone for sustainable agriculture. It refers to the pest management practices which are based on local natural resources. Understanding pest life cycle is the key for pest management. The main objective is to bring sustainability to agriculture based livelihoods and reduce the costs of cultivation and increase net incomes of small and marginal farmers.
