Our goal is eradication of poverty and creation of employment opportunities in rural Tamil Nadu by ecologically conscious and socially committed actions through developing a replicable agro-educational system for sustainable, self-reliant livelihood.
In Tamil Nadu, the southern part of India, small and marginal farmers sell their lands to rich absent landlords. They are unable to cultivate their lands due to exorbitant cost of inputs and infrastructure,including large-scale irrigation facilities. Traders from urban areas purchase the lands and they pledge the lands to banks for getting loans for nonagricultural purposes. The lands are abandoned and kept idle. The purchasing power of the pois thus lowered and abject poverty rises. Most of the small and marginal farmers go to bed hungry every night. Their debt keeps escalating. Sustainable agriculture, which implies farming using local resources only, is the only way for them to escape from the debt burden.
