A farmer works very hard in the field so the world can eat a healthy meal. But, an alarming reality struck us like lightening that on an average, one farmer commits suicide every 41 minutes in India. We realized that this is a humanitarian crisis of epic proportion. It affects the farmers and their family’s right to life, water, food and adequate standard of living. We started with the motivation to address and help the issues affecting the high suicide rate among farmers in India.
We are a voluntary organisation & charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community. We extend our support to Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) and also help farmers to dig bore-wells and purchase farming equipment such as Field cultivator, Seeders and planters, Wheel tractor-scraper, Plough, etc.
Whether the issue is personal or business-related, Hanvi is here for you. We run a confidential, national helpline and e-helpline which is open every day of the year and our volunteers provide free, confidential, pastoral and practical support to any farmers who seek help.
