NIRMAN sincerely believes that “Our soil and our seed are like mother and child who understand and protect each other”. Therefore, the organization gives priority to organic farming system as the best option for replenishment and nourishment of the soil for ensuring food security of the nurturers i.e. the farmers. It works with farmers and encourages them to adopt organic practices, which substantially reduces input costs and helps increase productivity in the long run. By creating an integrated system of organic farming, it aims to move towards conservation of agro-biodiversity.
NIRMAN’s major concern is food and livelihood security of the rural poor through sustainable agriculture, conservation of bio-diversity and management of natural resources on the basis of principles and actions, that are environment friendly, economically appropriate, socially just and developed by participatory approaches. We also focus on various overlapping issues like environment, economic development, education and forest right.
