Gramodaya Trust

Gramodaya Trust works for the development of farmers through farmers collectives and farmer producer organisations, livelihood promotion of poor in the rural areas, agri-enterprise and social enterprise development, developing resilience to climate change, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) issues

Gramodaya Trust was formed in 2015 after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh with the vision to empower the farmers in the newly formed state. This was done after a thorough study of the problems, possible solutions that can be incorporated at the farm-gate, thereby doubling the income of the farmers and increase employment opportunities. Since the incorporation, we have been working towards this goal and we believe we can do our part to increase the livelihood of our farmer friends.



Gramodaya aspires to build sustainable livelihoods of smallholder farmers, artisans, different occupational groups, resource poor and marginalized communities in the rural areas.
