About JSW Foundation

JSW Foundation (JSWF) is currently working with 6000+ farmers covering 5,800+ acres of cultivable land and 17,400 ha land under watershed management, through participatory approach striving to align to local, national and global goals (Sustainable Development Goals). The foundation has taken several initiatives for convergence with Govt. schemes, FPO strengthening, integrated watershed management, capacity building programmes etc., with an aim to increase farm and off-farm incomes across key states such as Karnataka, Maharashtra, West Bengal, etc

The foundation has thus envisaged a more focused approach/project on inclusive Agri livelihood model across value chain, capacity building of the farmers, promoting an improved package of practices, advocating less water-intensive farming techniques and forging strategic partnerships. The emphasis is on the market-led sustainable enhancement of profits to make Agri-livelihoods a preferred mode of occupation.

The JSW Foundation’s initiative is focused towards strengthening institutional capacities and enhance market capacities by rehabilitating existing value chains, supporting integrated farming systems and strengthening value chain development, thereby contributing towards improvement of livelihood of farmers and other rural communities in Karnataka state.
