We raised funds to support 100 families who are survivors of farmer suicides across Andhra and Telangana.

The reason for suicides among all the cases was debt. For e.g. In one particular region, there were
1 farmer who owed 2.4 lakhs
5 farmers who owed 3 lakhs
9 farmers who owed 4 lakhs
2 farmers who owed 4.5 lakhs
1 farmer who owed 4.8 lakhs
5 farmers who owed 5 lakhs
2 farmer who owed 6 lakhs
1 farmer who owed 7 lakhs
1 farmer who owed 10 lakhs
1 farmer who owed 9 lakhs
1 farmer who owed 15 lakh

are the same farmers who the government appointed committees to look into doubling the farmers income refer to as entreprenuers who form the back bone of the rural economy.
