Farmer suicide in India is the intentional ending of one's life by a person dependent on farming as their primary source of livelihood. In 2012, the National Crime Records Bureau of India reported 13,754 farmer suicides. The highest number offarmer suicides were recorded in 2004 when 18,241 farmers committed suicide.

Why am I fundraising?

About me: I am doing business in home-town and earning good income. I would like to support some lower income groups to start their own business so they can start living in better life. Beekeeping is one livelihood skill which when started can continuously provide the rural community income and food at least twice a year. Its potential as a business is yet to be realised especially for groups wishing to start up small-scale business. It even benefits the environment and food crops being grown by the farmers. The demand for its product never ceases but keeps on increasing both locally and internationally. Honey continues to command good prices. There is a market for beeswax and beekeepers can also trade in bees themselves, particularly queen bees.

What do I plan to do with the funds?
