Out of 10 Farmers club, this is the 2nd farmer club which has been inaugurated by the NABARD, rest others are also approved and inauguration dates of two more farmer club is in the June 2012.

What would be the future impact?
It is also important to know that with the linkages with the NABARD for LIFE project, SJVS-Banswara has become the 2nd considerable NGO (Vagdhara is another NGO with which NABARD is working in Banswara) with which NABARD has approved and did inauguration of farmers club and also developed the scope for working on mega projects of NABARD such as WADI & Watershed projects.

Real hero behind the success:
Its our field staff Ms. Priya who has actively mobilized the farmers ( both male and female) for bringing change in the agriculture through collective effort in terms of sustainable agricultural practices and linkages with the banks and institutions like NASBARD. Also our LIFE Project Coordinator Mr. Chandrapal has played a key role in bringing farmers to the NABARD office and regular follow-up with NABARD DDM for the approval and support.

The inauguration of Farmers club has been covered by the leading Hindi national Daily-Dainik Bhaskar.
