Our Mission

Veterans in Agriculture and Agribusiness

Veteran always find it challenging to determine what to do after military service, and to figure out how their experience can transfer to other career fields. Satori Foundation and Diar foundation wanted the veterans to know that Their experience and skillset can immediately and directly transfer to the field of agriculture Satori farm is a veteran’s farm which is part of the community of beginning farmers and are therefore all veterans are eligible for programs to help start and continue a career in farming.

Satori Foundation and Diar foundation aim is to help veterans/ Ex-Combatants transition into farming, ranching, and other agricultural opportunities by connecting with financial, educational, and training resources, and business planning support. These resources include:

Rehabilitating Veterans through Rehabilitation

Spiritual healing, and job creation.

Diar Foundation and Satori Foundation have learned that Suicide and mental health distress disproportionately affect Veterans// Ex-Combatants not only in the United States it a worldwide big threat and challenge.

Let us use America as example

According to a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than 5 million veterans suffered from these adverse behavioral health issues in 2020. That same year, after adjusting for age and sex differences in the population, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) estimated that veterans were 57.3 percent more likely to commit suicide than non-veterans.
Because of the above reason Satori Foundation and Diar foundation team up in partnership in 2020 to provide retired military personnel with a wide range of services, including understanding Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, accessing mental and physical health solutions, and upskilling for new career opportunities.
Through the partnership and teamwork with other Communities will makes it easier to bring Veterans together, mentor at scale, and create a culture of camaraderie, support, and development. It also allows them to extend the benefits of in-person programs to more people through a targeted virtual community.

Mental Health Services for Veterans/Ex-Combatants

Not only do 1 in 3 veterans live with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but 1 in 3 veterans also feel they don’t get the mental health services they need. We are here to change that. Through interactive programs, rehabilitative retreats, and professional services, veterans suffering from the invisible wounds of service can build resilience to help overcome mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), military sexual trauma (MST), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and more.
