Food Self Reliance and Livelihood Resilience through Agriculture Practices, Integrated Livelihood Initiative and NRM

A novel program designed to enhance the quality of the farmers in agriculture leading to sustainable life for themselves, their families and the community. The tribal and scheduled caste population of Jharkhand is mainly agriculturists but follows very old methods of cultivation and do not have much scientific knowledge or applications. The project aims at bridging the gap by chain system of capacity building programs to the farmers of the remote villages. Therewith, 25 farmers from each partner diocese (25 x 9 = 225) selected from their operational area along with 2 or 3 existing staffs from each partner with 2 Regional coordinators from SIGN were given intensive training for 6 days in Kirishi Vikas Kendra (KVK) at Hazaribag, run by the Holy Cross Sisters. They in turn are training more farmers in the partners’ area. The trainings are catching fire as more than 15000 farmers are already trained in the 9 partner dioceses.

The project activities received a boost with a visit from Manos Unidas, Spain represented by Mr. Ramon Alvaraz and Mrs. Maria Gonzalez. They were accompanied by Fr. S. Christu Das, the Forum Director to Hazaribag where they were accorded a very warm welcome by Most Rev. Bishop Anand Jojo of Hazaribag diocese and Fr. Tomy, the Director of Jan Vikas Kendra. The visitors had an opportunity to visit Krishi Vigyan Kendra, where the trainings are organized and held an interaction with the Director and the staffs after which they also had an opportunity to interact with the farmers trained in the diocese of Hazaribag at Jan Vika Kendra. The visitors were very much impressed by the progress of the project and expressed their hope that the project will certainly bring about some quality change in the life of the farmers across Jharkhand.
