Under this program, in order to make marginalized farmers financially and socially empowered, they were given the distinguished training of various advanced techniques of agriculture such as multi-cropping, mixed agriculture, integrated agriculture, organic farming, Vermi composting and animal husbandry etc. Under this work Vermi composts of 40 farmers were prepared, 15 livestock rearing work was started with 180 agriculture soil cards of farmers were made. In order to increase the income of the landless laborers, five programs were organized with the women's SHGs - Kadaknath farming, Dal (Pulse) Mills, Pottery Making, Masala making and Food Processing Enterprises. All of these five programs were conducted by 75 beneficiaries, out of which 62 women beneficiaries are earning their earnings through these enterprises. Above all activities were organized in Sendhwa block of Barwani district in Madhya Pradesh.
