Challenge

In rural Rajasthan, women face discrimination from birth to old age due to gender inequality. 76% of these women have never attended school, leading many to be illiterate. To help support their families, they are forced to take very low-paid, unskilled jobs, or if necessary, go to exploitative and predatory money lenders. Though these women do agriculture with their families but due to the lack of resources & advanced knowledge, they follow traditional methods which give them low returns.

Solution

The project aims at not only improving the livelihood of women farmers but also help them build their confidence. The intervention will build capacities of women farmers on advanced farming techniques and provide support in terms of resources like hybrid seeds, farm protection, farming tools, drip irrigation systems etc. which will lead to better production and enhanced income and well-being. The project will also help them sustain through challenges like Covid and come out of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Many women from tribal communities will learn advanced farming techniques and develop market linkages under the project. The capacities build under the project will help women sustain their enhanced income and give them a sense of self confidence. Further, financial independence will enable them to invest in the well-being of their families, provide better nutrition and education to their children. The project will help them find a way to come out of poverty.
