Give wings to women entrepreneurs in rural India
Every little bit helps!
Your support needed to empower the changemakers
Every little bit helps. This week (12-16 Sep), we're inviting you to join us in the ‘Little by Little campaign’ to help us raise the remaining $17,000 for our project “Give wings to women entrepreneurs in rural India” so that all our changemakers are fully empowered.
Our campaign seeks to empower six dynamic young women entrepreneurs, who will introduce new ideas and bring about a positive change in the lives of 3000 women farmers in southern India, who have been badly hit by climate change and COVID-19.

We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of our donors, as two of the six young women entrepreneurs whom our campaign targets, have successfully embarked on their journey to bring knowledge to other women of their farming communities.

Your support has helped us to:

  • Recruit two coaches for the entrepreneurs in November 2021
  • Organize a well-attended (106 participants) virtual workshop in India to raise awareness about this campaign in April 2022
  • Recruit two women Entrepreneurs for Rural Access (ERAs) from Andhra Pradesh State in May 2022,
  • Conduct six orientation sessions for them in May and July 2022 to help start their social entrepreneurship journey.
  • In August 2022, the Susag Millet Sisters, one of the selected women Entrepreneurs for Rural Access, conducted four training sessions with video projections on cereals in the village "Pedda Bhayalu" near Vishakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh State of India.
  • This helped raise awareness of 30 participants (Trainers of Trainees) regarding good agroecological practices (organic coating of cereal seed, managing rice diseases, and land preparation for rice cultivation).
  • The participants followed the training videos with great interest, expressed their happiness for accessing these valuable knowledge resources and requested a translation of those videos in their local language, Telugu.

Please be one of the wonderful people to make a donation at GlobalGiving and share this opportunity with your friends.

New videos added in August

29 new videos - 07 Chichewa / Nyanja, 02 English, 02 French, 02 Quechua, 04 Serer, 02 Spanish, and 10 Tumbuka - have been posted on our platform www.accessagriculture.org. They are freely downloadable as video (mp4), audio (mp3), mobile (video format 3gp) along with a one-page fact sheet with contact details for more information.

Floating vegetable gardens
ভাসমান সবজি বাগান (Floating vegetable gardens)
As our land remains under water during the rainy season, our ancestors were already thinking of ways to produce crops in order to survive. They invented the floating garden by using crop residues. We do not need any chemical fertilizers or pesticides, because the floating bed is fertile by nature.

Encouraging microorganisms that improve the soil
Encouraging microorganisms that improve the soil
I learned from Ing. Abrahán Mujica how you can culture your own microorganisms, using some simple equipment and a few inexpensive ingredients. Abrahán showed me and a small group at his agroecology course that you can start by collecting some leaf litter. We gathered the leaves and topsoil from the base of two or three molle (Schinus mole) trees in the city of Cochabamba.
