Each year, many farmers take their life in India. In 2014 alone, the National Crime Records Bureau of India reported a total of 5, 650 farmer suicides.

Many families in India depend on agriculture, either directly or indirectly. Farmers or Kisans, who have been filling the stomachs of children and families across India for generations, are now being forced into hopeless situations where they are forced to take their own lives.

There are various factors that may lead to higher suicide rates among farmers – climate change (monsoon failure and loss of crops), massive amounts of debt, government policies, public mental health issues – but accurate information about the problem is difficult to obtain due to the accusations of states misreporting data.

The wives and children left behind to deal with the grief and loss of their family member as well as crippling debt. SAF provides many forms of financial aid and emotional support to victims of farmer suicide who are living in extreme poverty.

SAF pays for any school expense for the children, we rebuild houses for those living in extremely poor conditions, and we provide counseling/mentorship for the family members so they do not lose hope and slip into deeper poverty.

By supporting SAF, you can ensure these families receive the help they need, while we continue to carry out other poverty alleviation projects in India.
