Our Aim

We create climate resilient communities through large scale environment initiatives that focus on climate smart agriculture and waste management programmes.It is a well known fact that the impact of climate change is severe in developing countries. Food security threatens 145 million in India with close to 43% children being chronically undernourished.  To combat the effects of climate change at a grassroots level, the work is focused on conserving natural resources and ensuring proper disposal of waste to create a sustainable tomorrow. Our interventions focus on the marginal farmer, providing him inputs to convert his farmland into organic and hence improve his yield through traditional soil cultivation methodologies. On the other hand, water conservation is thrust through deepening and renovation of existing ponds, wells and water bodies especially in rural areas. Responsible disposal of waste starts with proper segregation. Knowledge dissemination and segregation of waste at source through a cadre of ‘Green Friend's (sanitary workers) ensures responsible disposal and a cleaner society. Hand in Hand India is a UNFCCC Observer NGO.

Climate action and advocacy

Climate change is a multifaceted global threat that puts at risk years of effort in poverty alleviation. Recognizing that poverty alleviation and environmental sustainability go hand in hand, we have launched our Climate Action Initiative that aims to harness the immense knowledge and on-ground learning we have gained over years of working with rural communities across the globe.

Our Goal

To reach 100,000 farmers by 2025

Stories Of Change


Woman Farmer, Sirunagar, Tamil Nadu

Mrs. Thangam (aged 47 years) is only breadwinner of the family with three children. She possesses 2 acres of land. Thangam could not undertake agriculture as there was no sufficient water for irrigation. Though there was a bore well, this was not enough. Within a year of constructing a well recharge pit, she got more yield and she could cultivate the entire land of 2 acres and pump 3-4 hours worth of water in a day. She started cultivating vegetables and paddy. She was overwhelmed while sharing her experience that she has gained confidence in carrying out agriculture and she could afford her children education.
