Elevate

We create programming to elevate our kids in Indian society. The stigma of HIV in India is a roadblock at every level of life including education, access to health care and employment.

We create programming that creates jobs. Not all our kids will go to college. We work to build on site job-skills training programs that will provide the knowledge and expertise needed to sustain an adult life. We work and coordinate with business owners, government officials and leaders in the community to create pathways for our kids to find jobs, and when they are ready a community that will welcome them.

Organic Farm

No matter the zip code, organic has proven to be the best choice for the global collective community. Food is a language spoken in every culture. In India, more than half of the population is engaged in the agriculture sector. India is the country with the highest numbers of organic farmers in the world. Hope Now wants to be a part of this movement.

Our compound has the remnants of an organic farm that was active in the 1990s including a greenhouse. We want to bring this back to life. Our vision for the future is two-fold – grow our own food and supply produce for organic grocery stores and restaurants in the community. This will help fulfill our goal to create programming that sustains Hope Now over time.

Growing our own food reduces our budget. Creating an Organic Farm Cooperative generates revenue and becomes an on-site job skills training program for our kids. We are looking for partners to invest in rehabilitating the greenhouse including an irrigation system, digging a bore well for a primary water source and preparing the soil for planting season.

Dairy Farm

We have buffalo, not cows, as most of the 75 million dairy farmers across India do. Our 40-herd dairy is another example of Hope Now programming designed to generate revenue and serve as a job skills training program.

The kids learn about animal husbandry, how to grow quality fodder which increases milk production and the quality of the milk, which in turn fetches a higher price per litre. Programs like this bring our kids into the community, working side by side to establish milk routes, fair group pricing, how to build a business model and more.

Since moving to the city in 2016, we plan to join our small dairy with the herd on site to form a larger, commercial size dairy. This will also serve as another job skills training program for the kids.
