Shakti Karuna - Supporting Farmers in Maharashtra Part 1
This video brings you glimpses from the meeting of revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa with the families of our farmer brethren in Beed, Maharashtra under the initiative of Shakti Karuna. Under this initiative, our team of volunteers surveyed the entire affected region and found that District Beed was one of the worst affected, where farmer suicide statistics were very high and their families were impoverished. Directly interacting with the families, we ascertained the kind of aid that was most necessary to rehabilitate and empower them. And then on 19th May 2017 the revered master personally visited Beed district and distributed cheques to the widows of over 50 farmers who had committed suicide. Cycles were distributed to 31 young girls who had to walk almost 14 kms daily to school and back. The infrastructure of Govt. schools was supported by introducing E-learning in 15 schools, a new concept enthusiastically welcomed by villagers and Govt. official alike. Heartfelt thanks and hearty congratulations to all our patrons and volunteers who made it possible for farmers’ families to live with dignity, holding their heads up again.
