AROEHAN organized and conducted the training program for farmers and self-help groups on the occasion of National Farmer’s day. Every year this day i.e. 24th December is marked to celebrate the birth anniversary of Chaudhary Charan Singh, India’s fifth prime minister. The training session was focused on jasmine cultivation and potato cultivation. Where the farmers were provided with the demonstration of potato sowing techniques. AROEHAN has developed a progressive relationship with farmers over the period of time. India is primarily an agricultural-based economy and is the largest source of livelihood. The organizational aim was to spread awareness on the role and the contribution of farmers to the country’s economy and how they are indirectly related to the lives of fellow citizens.
