The livelihood of the farmers is mostly dependent upon various production systems, however agriculture has the mainstay in their livelihood in the context of Jharkhand. Most rural households are engaged in subsistence farming under adverse and risky environmental conditions. The families are often engaged in low paying non-agricultural activities. The livelihood basket consists of agriculture (that meets food security only for few months in a year), income from forest (fuel wood and NTFP), livestock, and wage labour (local as well as migration).
The primary objective of the MKSP is to empower women farmers in agriculture by making systematic investments in Community based organizations to enhance their participation and productivity, as also create and sustain agriculture based livelihoods of rural women. The project focus to increase income of small and marginal women farmers through capacity building around sustainable agriculture as majority of farmers are involved in subsistence farming, using indigenous technologies which results in low yield and high labour cost.
