We are striving to develop 1000 water body structures in 100 villages. The water bodies are contributing for improving the quality of life of rural communities. There are villages where women are struggling to fetch water from far-away places and even water availability for cattle’s in summer is a big challenge. Theses structures will improve the access of water availability and in long run will contribute for increasing water levels and which will impact agriculture and local economy. This will result to combat with the climate change for small and marginal farmers.
With the aim of augmenting livelihood sources and options through improving traditional agriculture practices among the rural population and other marginalized groups, team Manjari undertakes variety of activities. Natural Resource Management is one of them. As natural resources are the major sources of livelihood for the rural poor and there is no denying the fact that proper management of these resources boosts their income capacity, agricultural production, employment generation and standard of living, therefore, we, a six year old development organization is working with the approach to transforming the lives and livelihoods of the rural poor.
It is a process towards capacity building of farmers with special focus on women towards building adaptive capacity to adverse effect of climate change and drought resilience, improving technical know how about Good agriculture Practices (GAP) and ways to improve water use efficiency etc. It also ensures round the year food security (become self-reliant) of farmers through optimum utilization of land and water resources.
Till now, we have constructed 70 Anicut water bodies structures (Pokhar) in the remote villages. As of now, 3500 families have been benefitted with this initiative. These structures have 17,50,000 Cubic Metre water storage capacity and helping rural families in numerous ways. This helped them to grow two crops and helped their cattle rearing as well.
This has multiple impact on the livelihood and well-being of the rural communities those who were struggling without the adequate water harvesting structures.
We can further turn the hopes of many in need into realization with your contribution to our journey ahead. We are hoping to raise INR 2 Cr. to ensure enhancing the livelihoods through utilization of irrigation and in agriculture and to increase productivity in farm sector. You are the solution to poverty alleviation and uplifting the marginalized to a better world – a world of dignified life.
