Accion Fraterna Case Study:

How one of India’s leading NGOs is using Verdentum’s technology to coordinate and track a sustainable agriculture program positively influencing 30,000 farmers:

Accion Fraterna, Ananthapur, India, is one of India’s leading non-profit organizations. Accion Fraterna is using Verdentum to coordinate and collect data on a Sustainable Agriculture Program that is impacting the lives of approximately 30,000 farmers in one of the most drought prone rural areas in India.

The Accion Fraterna Sustainable Agriculture Program seeks to empower farmers through education on drought mitigation technology and systems. They have more than 70 activities, ranging from recording the number of farmers who have attended meetings at higher levels to the demonstrations of various technologies—all tracked on Verdentum technology.

Accion Fraterna's employees are using Verdentum to upload data through their phones on all of their 70+ activities as they are happening, providing unimaginable efficiency. Just a few of the benefits:

  • Real time data for better decision making
  • A complete visual story of everything happening in the program
  • Going green and saving time in delivering reports to the head office
  • Better connectivity between teams and an ‘overall picture’ for all employees
  • Completely digital data
  • Transparency & accountability

A brief conversation with Accion Fraterna employees:

Verdentum is helping us take right decisions and follow up.

-- Dr. Malla Reddy, Director, Accion Fraterna

We can directly see and know the work going on without going to the field every time.

-- Venkateshwarlu, ATL(Area Team Leader), Accion Fraterna

We had to travel from the fields to the central office to report our data, Verdentum saves us travel time and cost.
