Natasha works with members of the Dalit and Jaanajati castes who are poor, lack opportunity and live on terraced hillsides with no irrigation. Production in these areas is generally limited to what can be grown over the monsoon season between June and August.

Farmers make the most money during this period and need support, which makes Natasha’s work invaluable. Natasha has knowledge of new and innovative farming methods that increase production and income for farmers as she helps them move from subsistence to commercial farming.

Natasha has worked in her community for two years now and is frequently challenged by her work. Changing farmers’ minds from a traditional perspective to a commercial one is often difficult, but it is worth it for the changes Natasha is seeing in her community. There are now kitchen gardens providing families with food and an increase in their income, helping them to access more education, health and other opportunities.
