AuroKrishi is an initiative of Gramonnati Trust - a not-for-profit Social Enterprise that aims to support rural transformation through technology and entrepreneurship. Aurokrishi programme focuses on enabling rural enterprenourship in organic farming by providing rural farmers with training, education and technology in order shift from industrial to organic, environmental friendly and sustainable practices.
Our mission is to move rural India towards organic farming and develop 5000 organic farming agri-entrepreneurs over the next five years. This transition is imperative to reverse the damages of the green evolution which ushered in the rampant use of pesticides and fertilisers to ensure bumper yields and curb famine and food shortages. Farmers today face many challanges such as crippling debt and loan burdens resulting from the high costs of pesticides, fertilisers and expensive geneticaly modified seeds.
