Collective participation of local people in all of its activities will be foundation stone for any project. To achieve this, farmers of the villages are united together under a common roof called Farmer Clubs. The members of Farmer Clubs are given trainings from time-to-time. The Goal behind Farmer Clubs is that once the implementation of the project is completed, future maintenance and development of the project should be managed by their collective participation.
Farmer Clubs have been actively organized in Adilabad, Nirmal, Kumaram Bheem Asifabad, Mancherial, Vikarabad districts of Telangana and Kadapa, Visakhapatnam Districts of Andhra Pradesh. The members of these clubs meet on a particular date of every month and discuss various issues of village related to Agriculture and participate in shramadanam for implementation of Government schemes. Also, they are given various trainings on savings and collective mechanisms of finance management. They save a certain amount of money as a part of savings scheme; in turn this money is rotated amongst them by utilizing it to disburse loans to the members of the farmer clubs when in need. Eventually this would relieve the farmers from vicious cycle of indebtedness with the moneylenders.
3472 farmers organized through 158 Farmer Clubs till March, 2021.
