Fundraising to help farmers through alternate livelihood skilling - farmerUprise

This is a another campaign on top of previous campaign described below as - LAST CAMPAIGN. We are starting this campaign to help poor farmer families earn living through alternative professions. We have come up with a draft plan to train 'mostly' women from such families in creating different stuff that can be sold to urban markets through offline and online modes. Initially we will training them in making various crafts, processed food items and ready made clothings. We have also plans to fund their initial setup to some extend (Rs. 10,000) and connect them to market. We have following plan -
- Analyse what these individual women can do better and train them into that area, provided the products have demand in surrounding or online market
- Fund them intially with Rs. 10K each and they may start it individually or as a group as per product
- Train few educated men/women from their area on marketing
- Help them market the stuff intially
- Leave the campaign

Please feel free to suggest us. Also help in connecting to sellers will be appreciated. You can mail us at - pbpimpale OR amolsuroshe at and call me (09960946967) or Amol (09766551521) for more details/queries.


Report of What we did in Past campaign:

We were able to get funds throgh contributions from our friends offline and through Milaap - We collected 
₹667,554.00 from different sources including Milaap. On Milaap we raised Rs. 111,750.00 (pre-deduction of 8% by Milaap).

The balance money (Rs. 97K) is being used sponsering education/helping some more families 

Apart from monetory help we have adopted chidren such families (51 students) and will assure that their education continues. We collect fund for those activities through our personal sources. As of now we have sufficient funds to help around 200 students every year, but we keep on getting requests from various schools to adopt some of the bright students who find it difficult to continue their education; you can surely help them.

Please write us for any other details needed. We will be happy to share with you.

We have done very little but many groups have comefowards after looking at impact of our work and they are also doing the same for families we were not able to cover.

Thank you very much.



This is a very tough time for farmers in Marathwada region who are facing droughts. Meteorological, Hydrological & Agricultural drought, highly unreliable weather condition, shortage of water and now from last 3-4 seasons complete loss in agricultural economy, all this has turned into very dangerous situation. As per the official reports 35 in Sept, 21 in Oct and 53 in month of Nov have been reported as farmer suicide cases in Marathwada region (Aurangabad, Nanded, Parbhani, Jalna, Hingoli, Beed, Latur, Usmanabad).

So instead of just expressing the condolence, we have decided to reach out to at least 50 such families and provide an immediate monetary help of Rs. 10,000/- for each family, along a word commitment to support their kid’s education starting next year under Kartavya ( and initiatives.

We are in talks with govt. officials, friends and print and electronic media in every district to gather the details of affected families. Once we are done visiting and helping these families we will share the detailed report with everybody through and all other possible sources, the way we have done for our activities before ( and ).

We can not imagine what a family must be going through, where the bread earner takes the path of ending his life. Every day there is a news of farmer suicide in Marathwada (Maharashtra, India). Bad economic policies and bad weather conditions are the killers. Many things need to be changed. We can do it. But that will take time. For now before they lose hope in system and humanity around let's offer a hope. Let's help each family with Rs. 10K so that the hope doesn't die.

[We have started visiting the families with the help. For updates on that please see comments section]
Your contribution of even as little as Rs. 500/- would go towards helping a farmer's family. Please come forward and show your support. If you cannot contribute, please share it on Facebook, Twitter and other social tools you use. Look forward to your support.

You can contact me (09960946967) or Amol (09766551521) for more details/queries!

We assure that the donation you make will be used very genuinely. For any doubts please feel free to give us a call anytime!
