Just when there was a discussion going on about farmers’ livelihood and pollution in the National media
'Almost everyone gets their food from a Farmer. A very large part of the population is also unaware, insensitive or simply ignorant to the trials and travails of a farmer'. - CS Grewal
This training is aimed to empower farmers to put their perspective to the rest of the world, and share their successes, failures and aspirations.
Today, we are going to create storytellers out of farmers so that they can continue speaking the truth and the media and decision makers don’t talk about it
Our aim is that farmers should not be dependent on anyone. Their voice should directly reach the concerned authorities
Our aim was giving them basic training on how they can use their mobile phone to raise their voices
You just need a mobile phone to go viral on social media
It will also enable them to occasionally correct any misinformation being propagated on their behalf'. - Grewal
