Agriculture projects are a key element in improving the living conditions of people living in rural India.
Family farming is a key part of sustainable development; it is the livelihood of millions of families in the world and the type of agriculture that produces the most food globally.
For the past 10 years, Kolam has been working tirelessly in India, looking for solutions that can improve the lives of the people living there. In the rural areas where they operate, they encounter a series of challenges that make it extremely difficult to find jobs: inaccessible public transport, a high percentage of illiteracy and, often, dependent minors who make it difficult to reconcile or that adults can move to high places.
It is in this context, where their agricultural project was started more than 8 years ago in the Udaipur district , benefiting more than 400 families . This initiative not only provides a source of livelihood, but also promotes sustainable agricultural practices, contributing to the resilience of rural communities.
In this edition, thanks to the collaboration of Solidarity and Cooperation of the Reus City Council , they have been able to expand our impact. They have provided training, seeds and monitoring in planting crops to 100 families in the villages of Majawad , Bharodi and Rana. This opportunity not only strengthens local capabilities but also fosters independence and sustainable growth.
With every harvest, they are weaving a better future for these families, proving that family farming is not just a way of life, but a vital key to progress and prosperity.
