We strive to achieve this goal by working with farmers to re-establish their control over land, seeds, food & farming system, through the conservation, renewal and rejuvenation of biodiversity. Keeping seeds, biodiversity, traditional knowledge and farming in the custody of farming communities to generate livelihoods and provide basic needs is our core programme. our mission focuses on improving the well being of landless agricultural labourer, small and marginalized farmers through ecological / sustainable agriculture. We believe that ecological agriculture produces more food, nutrition and income for farmers and strengthens rural economy compared to monocultures and chemical farming. We are therefore committed to resisting patents on seeds and life forms promoted by the trips agreement of wto, opposed to agrochemical tncs, genetically modified organisms (gmos) and chemical pesticides as they kill life forms, tightens the control of tncs over our farming systems and threaten our food sovereignty.
