Autobiography of a farmer’s child imagining how this donation would change his life:

It’s winter again. Living in a village situated in the foothills of the Himalayas calls for chilly breeze, thick fog and extreme weather conditions. It’s almost 1.5 years of living in a pandemic, my parents say they’ve never seen such a crisis before. I have seen my parents face transform from worry frown forehead lines to a hopeful gleam in their eyes. My father says since the day Haldivita Foundation has stepped into their lives, he feels like the village is adopted and is being cared for. This year, just like last year we have clothes to keep us warm, enough food to keep our bellies full, and farming work to keep ourselves busy and productive. This is all because my father says some people generously came forward to help us. I asked my father who these people are, and every time he answered with a smile on his face. He says, in this world there are some kind people who love and invest in your life. They come forward and try innovative ways to connect with others who build a chain of generosity. I do not understand this, but I get the part that love is feeding me and keeping me warm. As for my parents, love is making farming possible for them.

One day I overheard my parents talk about how much their lives have changed since the Haldivita Foundation came into the picture. My father went on to say that the crops are now healthier because of the quality of the seeds. And the new storage facilities kept the rodents away. They further discussed how it’s benefiting the entire village by being environmentally and economically sustainable. My mother was very happy with the value we received for our crops in the market. She was saying she is now less worried about our healthcare, sanitation and education facilities. I remember they used to quarrel a lot whenever they used to discuss household income, it was never enough. Nonetheless, they made sure I was fed although they had to sleep on an empty stomach. But now there’s love and peace at home.

There’s a small TV in my neighbours house, once I saw a movie where kids go to school. And I quietly wished that I wanted to learn cool things about science too. Well since the pandemic, all I have done is play and help my parents in the fields. But my mother always tells me that God listens to the prayers of little children. I think God really heard my prayers. My father recently got a smartphone, and I have heard from my other friends that learning science and attending school is possible from this small device, but I am yet to explore that.

This imaginary article could turn into reality only if you decide to donate today. No matter how small your donation is. It is enough for a day’s meal, or a week’s internet connection for childrens’ education. Or even enough for the accessibility of COVID vaccine for at least one family in this village. 

They feed us. It’s time we feed them.

They protect our environment. It’s time we protect them.

It’s time we become the answer to their prayers by one small act: DONATION.


A business which does not support a social cause is a bunny without a hop. Lifeless and mocking!!

We at Haldivita nag ourselves constantly not to forget this. Ventures are an excellent reminder that we are all about others and we have to serve without obligation. Business is all about restoring, harmonizing balancing and energizing our soul and spirit. Haldivita has been a passionate journey seeking spiritual maturity at every step and every moment. We passionately believe that lives matter, lives inspire and lives awaken us.

Every sale of Haldivita product inspires and supports a farmer in Uttarakhand and touches their life with warmth. Trust me; life is difficult for the farmers in Uttarakhand. We know because we have walked their way to touch their lives. It is depressing to check their struggle, and see them withering every day. Our venture is a small step to provide them with a better life.

 “The benefit of pilgrimage and meditation to holy places is not because of their rich history, but for the fact that divine blessing can be experienced when visiting them. Their very soil is impregnated with a higher consciousness”. –Swami Kriyananda

Universal life energy flowing in the hills of Himalayas is captured brilliantly by these simple folks in whatever they grow and the healing impact of the agricultural produce is inspirational. The Himalayas have always been considered as mountains ensouled in divinity, where Rishis are constantly immersed in meditation. This is evident in Flora and Fauna of this sacred land. Higher plants have played key roles in the lives of people living in the Himalaya for both food and medicine. Numerous wild and cultivated plants have been utilized as curative agents since ancient times, and medicinal plants have gained importance as herbal medicines. All natural Himalayan turmeric power is organically grown in Uttarakhand. This turmeric is very famous for its medicinal quality with very good Curcumin content. 100 families have been inspired to grow turmeric for us which forms the main component of our products. 

Patronage of our 10,000 + customers, 8 dealers and 800 retail outlets is important to support the ecology of the region and spread a smile in heartland of this mountainous stretch. No venture or passion can be alive without a cause and a commitment. 

Haldivita initiative to EMPOWER farmers at Haldukhal (Uttarakhand) – Apna Khet Apni Aamdani

WE ARE BLESSED, the passion of HALDIVITA team has lead us to social connectedness with the Farmers. A strong emotion of belonging has brought us close to the tribe of food growers.

HALDIVITA stepped out of the dark comfort zone and exerted and became a bearer of this light. In difficult times, we did not quit believing, we did not quit growing.

If you are happy cursing the darkness, then do not light a candle.

Close to Lansdowne, a town and a hill station situated on the Kotdwar – Pauri road at a height of 1,780 m in Uttarakhand, India, there a is a small place Haldukhal. With the support of the local MLA Mahant Dileep Singh Rawat ji we have started an initiative to assist the farmers in their crop production. This is similar to the project we started in Chamoli two years back. Our small initiative has revolutionized the lives of 80+ farmers there.

On 30th November 2020, in a very well attended event, nearly 100+ farmers collected to seek the support to grow High quality Pahadi turmeric. Haldivita has commenced a village-based small scale grassroots level organization working for development of Rural farming communities. We have called upon all those benevolent minds that can accord in all possible manners with their expertise and resources for the mission of ours.

Haldivita is stepping in the gap to #EmpowerFarmers with required inputs, providing farmers with right seeds and ensuring best agronomy practices. We at Haldivita strongly believe that Farmers are on the front lines of ClimateChange and #EcologicalChange  and empowering them would make a tremendous difference.We do understand that farmers need to be coached extensively in modern techniques like mulching, drip irrigation, water optimization, crop-to-land matching, and making available GM seeds which can raise outputs dramatically. Farmers also need knowledge, information, and market access for more profitable crops like spices, herbs, vegetables & fruits and such. Improving the lot of farmers can have a huge multiplier effect. Their farmlands have reduced to just a little over a hectare per household. The soil is depleted of its nutrients by overusing chemicals, and also wrong products. The farmer seeks the less expensive versions of agrochemical substances, which are also of low quality. The issues are numerous. Farmers know even little that they are over tilling the land, destroying its cover, and hurting its natural ecosystem. When shorn of its cover, the eroded land expels into the atmosphere carbon and other green house gases that it had contained within it for centuries, causing climate change.  

We wish to work aggressively to make a lasting impact towards the betterment of the rural farming – Ankit Khanduri
