The drought deficit in rainfall and untimely hailstorms have often led to enormous damage to crops. The amount of distress on the farmers can be gauged from the fact that around 597 farmer suicides have taken place in the district from January 2011 to 2017. So with the aim of reducing the number of farmer suicides providing a sustainable source of income for them the project has been started by the Shivar Foundation. Shivar is an initiative to help the distressed farmers of Osmanabad with the help of untapped natural resources available in the region especially the Osmanabadi Goat whose milk has rare properties.
Shivar Sansad is an initiative to help the distressed farmers of Osmanabad with the help of natural resources available in the region especially the Osmanabadi Goat whose milk has rare skincare properties. This Osmanabadi goat milk is utilized as a raw material to manufacture beauty soap. With this Shivar aims to financially strengthen farmers and the widows families affected by farmer suicides by providing a sustainable source of income especially during the non-farming season.
Goats have come to the rescue of farmers in Maharashtra s drought-hit district of Osmanabad providing livelihood to 250 families in the region who have started making soap using their milk. Farming families in 25 villages in the district have joined the project with the help of a local non-government organisation. The project is aimed at helping families of farmers who have committed suicide or have fallen in hard times.
