Growing up, Siddhesh witnessed the misery and poverty which seemed to be the inevitable fate of a farmer in Maharashtra. The combination of economic crisis, the use of toxic chemicals that leads to unsustainable farming methods, as well as the effects of climate change form a heavy burden. Often so heavy that it becomes unbearable. For many farmers, struggling financially and facing serious health issues, suicide seems to be the only way out.
With the organization “AGRO RANGERS”, Siddhesh will work on technical as well as methodical organic farming solutions that will ensure that farmers and their families have a future.
