ORRISSA NGO is raising a fund for the The project that will support 100 Adivasi Seed Mothers to conserve Climate Resilient local seeds, organise local women farmers groups and support 5,000 small family farms to produce enough food for their families and earn by selling surplus food, in Southern districts of Odisha state in India. We want our small and Marginal farmers not became Slaves of the powerful market. Rather, turn themselves capable enough to actively participate in the local market. The adivasi family farms are capable to feed the world if we support them to grow healthy foods without chemical fertilisers and no hybrids. They would grow healthy traditional foods in the natural way using the local organic inputs and CAN SUPPLY US HEALTHY FOODS. A small but timely support can help them get out of the cycles of crop loss due to climate change affects and debts. It would not only help them get out of debt but make them self reliant on their diverse agro-ecologically farmed food crop lands. This way we can deepen Our cultural and spiritual connections to nature and protect our volatile planet from disasters. Let us stop loosing our seeds, breeds, land, water, air, knowledge, health and We should remain sovereign to make decisions about our way of life. We together can stop the pre-existing structural inequalities in society and sustain the natural systems and processes of the planet.
