We believe that empowerment, just like physical health, needs nourishment at the granular level to become truly sustainable. Despite the vast troves of knowledge that farmers possess, they are unable to make steady and fair income from their occupation due to fast-paced, insatiable markets that exploit natural resources. Organisations ike Vrutti recognise this gap and are committed to creating systems that can make farming profitable as well as sustainable.
Vrutti believes in building a robust system that converts farmers’ knowledge into sustainable economic models through transformative action and innovation. Their core impact model enables resilience, wealth-creation, as well as responsible production systems that help small producers grow out of systems that impoverish them.
As an all-women team at Holy Spice, we are proud to partner with Vrutti and support women farmers in villages near Bangalore, India on their journey to self-sufficiency. Through significant monthly donations, we support Vrutti’s effort to equip women farmers with valuable supplies like heirloom vegetable varieties and vital skills in marketing and participatory guarantee systems.
