In 2017 hemp cultivation was first legalized by Uttarakhand. Most farmers in Uttarakhand were struggling to make ends meet. They had given up cultivation as most of their crops were destroyed by animals like monkeys, birds, or due to weather forces. This led to farmers leaving their homes to work as laborers in cities, leading to a break up of their family life and social structure.

Hemp Foundation firmly believes that we can use this legalization to help impoverished farmers and artisans of Uttarakhand. We strive to improve the economic and social conditions of these farmers who have abandoned their homes and families in search of better opportunities.

And the answer to their problems lies in the legal cultivation of hemp. This is their golden chance to return to their homes, and restart their lives through sustainable and economically viable hemp farming.
Our Mission & Vision
Nothing sums up the Mission and Vision of Hemp Foundation more appropriately than this American Indian proverb, “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”. At Hemp Foundation, both our mission and vision are our singular promise and commitment –“To leave a better world for our children.”
Though we humans have existed for less than 1% of life on earth, our reckless consumption and fathomless greed have already ruined our planet. Global warming, water crisis, deforestation, pollution, and plastic waste are some grievous problems we are experiencing. These calamitous issues threaten to wipe out the human race from the face of the earth.

Unfortunately, we are truly the most destructive species on earth. Though we amount to only 0.01% of all living species on our planet, human beings have been responsible for the loss of 50% flora and 83% wild fauna on this lovely planet.
