WATER RESTORATION / HARVESTING
After the disastrous earthquake in Gujarat, Rainwater harvesting was enabled by constructing tanks of 8000 litre capacity. Drinking water resources were restored by repairing and reconstructing Public- stand posts, Havadas (Tanks), drainage lines and soak pits leading to easy and hygienic access to water for people and cattle
Once availability of water ensured, the task of maintenance was entrusted to local committees at village level, comprising of representatives of various castes, communities with equal participation of women, thereby building capacities of local communities.
