    Rural and Environment Development Society

    from Kadiri, Andhra Pradesh

Pudami Thalli (Mother earth) women farmers project : Thalapuru village, Atmakur mandal, Ananthpur dst,  Andhra Pradesh by I4FARMERS , REDS KADIRI and friends.

Beneficiaries : 11 families who are currently completely dependent on seasonal/random labor work with women as family breadwinners.

Project Plan:
1. Leased 8 acres of land from a private landlord with lease rate of rs 8,000/acre per year. Attached is the leasing document with personal information masked.
2. Growing food grains /millets/vegetables through organic/natural farming methods.
3. Assist the 11 families become self sustainable through farming and achieve some sort of consistent livelihood support as soon as they can.

Required Support : Any individuals/organizations who can sponsor cows or interest free loans for this group (They have a registered cooperative society to sign any agreement if needed, numerous attempts have been made by the group to obtain loans from existing central/state govt schemes but unfortunately no luck due to corruption and indifference/insensitivity of those in-charge of making it happen. The group can start repaying in small installments starting 2 years from now) . Since these 11 farmers are the primary breadwinners for their families they are in danger of losing daily income while working on this project. So having 4 to 5 cows/buffaloes will help earn their daily livelihood through dairy, or paying them minimum wages for daily needs from an interest free loan which will be paid back by deducting amounts in small installments from the revenue generated through the project. Please feel free to join us or spread the word. 
Every rupee that you can donate counts. Also please share any ideas/suggestions that might make our efforts easy/better. 
The work has just started and you can see some pictures in the updates tab above and also on our I4FARMERS page here.
Thanks for your support.
