Initiatives
As part of the rural development component of the presidential imperatives, we aim to integrate small-scale farmers into the commercial sector of the Indian economy through increase in productivity and greater market orientation. Thus the challenge now is to unlock the talents and creative energy of people and improve their participation in every facet of the sector and rid it once and for all of the many barriers noted in its historical dualism. However, in this age of market liberalization, globalization and expanding agribusiness, there is a danger that small-scale farmers will find difficulty in fully participating in the market economy. Thus, the broad objective of our organization is to facilitate the integration of small-scale emerging agriculture into the Indian economy and it’s essential function would be to develop poor farmers by amplifying the potentiality of market participation to farmers’ livelihoods and their welfare in general.
 
Farmers’ Integration
To organize, to form a union, to become an alliance, is a fundamental of human social behaviour. No economy can meet its potential if any part of its citizens is not fully integrated into all aspects of that economy. Having the same view point we realize that there is need to integrate the farmers so that they could improve their is need to integrate the farmers so that they could improve their livelihood in which way they always wanted but could not achieve by any reasons. Under these circumstances, building social capital through association represents a means to attain food security, a process to defeat the social scourge of migration and an entry point for development and empowerment.
 
Actions
Recognizing the potential benefits of farmers’ integration, we support the farmers of our region by making influential coalition with them. This effort includes farmers in entire surrounding villages and in future perspectives all the state of Uttar Pradesh and finally India. The early promotional steps in support of farmers’ integration include the establishment of a supported network of dedicated community organizers (Gram Pradhans), and their extensive use of participatory approaches to develop trust and understanding of the strengths, resource use priorities and constraints of (poor) farmers of individual villages.

What else we do involves farmers’ meetings and “Goshtheis” nurturing of social cohesion, association, building capacity for inclusion, decision-making, skills development and sharing, the development of savings and the promotion of the evolution of local micro-credit services through our banks and other funding agencies. On the other side, we are also promoting group farming or agreement farming in which we ensure the farmers that land will be permanently owned and cultivated only by the farmers and do not encourage for leasing land and allowing private sector to acquire it for cultivation. We encourage farmers to form grass-root level informal clubs owned and managed by farmers themselves or by our joint efforts. We provide all necessary input and technical consultancy to farmers on mutual agreement and assure them for marketing of their final produce.

Most interestingly, as a consequence of these efforts, farmers themselves are now demanding us for technical support they need and even to recommend policies and approaches necessary to bring it about, including: capacity-building in participatory livelihoods approaches and awareness-raising of poverty focused options amongst service providers, e.g., development of innovative extension and communication approaches, including the use of mass media and links with other service providers in the wider arena of the region.
