Our kisans toil every day to ensure we have food on our plates - while they themselves go hungry.Swades Foundation has adopted a 360-degree approach to uplift rural families from poverty by enabling poor farmers to boost their annual income and stand on their own two feet.
Swades’s holistic approach includes giving rural households ways to widen their earning capacity by providing opportunities in animal husbandry; water for irrigation; seeds, saplings and trees to cultivate their fallow land; scholarships for rural youth to continue their education, and more.
It is time we help our farmers and their families prosper. Your donation will contribute to ensuring 29,303 households in rural India will become self-reliant.
Swades Foundation aims to create self-sustaining rural communities by ensuring that every household earns at least₹ 2,00,000 per annum through a basket of programs - be it farm-based, off-farm or non-farm interventions.
Everyday is a struggle for Sarika Sandip Gole, a single mother, from Turbhe village in Poladpur. Having lost her husband at a very young age, she leads a challenging life earning a mere₹ 2,700 per month working as a domestic help. Her dream is to see her 13-year-old daughter standing on her own two feet. Your support can ensure that Sarika takes up goat rearing to increase her yearly income and fulfil her daughter's dream of working in a multinational company.
Shankar Devji, a 55-year-old farmer, brings in a meagre Rs.2000 rupees a month. He owns a farm which is less than an acre and on hilly terrain with no water source, making it difficult for him to grow crops and increase his income. Growing up he never completed his education. Today, he dreams to provide a better life for his son. He now hopes to start poultry farming with the help of Swades Foundation which will help him fund his son’s higher education
