Why should you donate to Access Agriculture?
Help us in raising funds for our current campaign to assist six young changemakers, who are visiting rural communities to share agricultural information in local languages. This is all the more important as recently many young people have left their studies or jobs in the city to go back to their rural homes. Find out more about these young entrepreneurs and help them to bring personal protective equipment (PPE) to rural populations to avoid the spread of Coronovirus. Donate Now!
