Farmer Raghupathy’s connect with Hand in Hand India goes four years back when he became one of the first converts to organic farming. He attended our organic farming training and now has a thriving 15-acre land that grows paddy and watermelons. But what he would never have thought of was becoming a bee-keeper. We helped him set up a small part of his farm with bee-boxes. His additional income of INR 10,000 per month from the honey sale is indeed a sweet profit! Raghupathy has also become our trainer for the community of farmers who want to take up bee-keeping. It’s a win-win! We’ve formed 380 such green livelihood enterprises for farmers around Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh
