UD believes that Strong and Independent Farmer Organization is the key to Sustainable Development of the Farmer/Peasants Community of Bangladesh. For the existence of the smallholders in present corporate agriculture the farmers have to be organized and work together collectively in the form of cooperative or something else for their self-help sustainable development.
So, UD has been facilitating to development a farmer organization named “Swadhin Krishok Sangathan (SKS). SKS has already been formed in 90 villages under three Upazilas of Jhenaidah & Magura district with around 8000 members (50% women members). The SKS is active in organic production and marketing as well as raising their voice for their rights.
