Dear Patrons,

We thank you for your continued support for supporting our campaign “Gift Life to 1000 water starved families in India”.

Based on the early need assessment done in Karlamunda block, 6 villages of 2 Gram Panchayat (Joradobra and Borpadar) have been identified by the project team to implement the planned activities. These villages do not have canal irrigation facilities and hence have been given priority for the planned activities. Initial grounding meeting took place with the VDC (Village Development Committee) members to make them understood about the project purpose. Several meetings been organized to finalise the possible structures and identified the place to construct the structures in each of the village.

Processes such as discussion with community, getting their consent, identification of sites for construction of water harvesting structures, assessing technical feasibility have been completed.

The work on the construction will be initiated after the paddy harvesting season, by January end, to ensure maximum availability and participation of the community.

With Gratitude,

Your Support is Helping Kerala Flood Victims

IGSSS Team - Working at the forefront in Kerala

Dear Patrons,

We thank you for your generous support for supporting our campaign “Urgent SOS for Flood affected People - Kerala”.

The south west monsoon in Kerala started in the last week of May and the torrential rains continued in the state of Kerala since the third week of July 2018. Many districts in Kerala grappled with severe flood situation and most of the districts in the coastal, middle and high ranges of the state experienced serious issues due the heavy rainfall. This sort of calamity last happened in Kerala in 1924.

Our Emergency response team rushed to Wayanad district of Kerala as soon as the flood situation got worse. We collaborated with district administration and other NGOs and zeroed in on the villages where the relief support has been scarce. These villages are mostly inhabited by tribals and they were living in houses built by Government. These villages are sparsely populated and are in remote locations. Their houses have been destroyed and they have lost their belongings.The relief kits distributed contains toothbrush, soaps, shampoo, cotton, plastic mugs, buckets, tarpaulin, sanitary napkin, blankets, mosquito nets and other necessary items. Till now 500 kits have been distributed.

Now our focus is on rehabilitating the affected families. At present, we have identified 2000 such families. In the recovery phase, IGSSS will support the most vulnerable tribal families in Wayanad with livelihood support. We would be supporting agricultural activities for small and marginal farmers, livestock support and livestock shelter construction for landless/tribal families, seed money to women headed households for small enterprise building and creating alternative livelihood opportunities as pilot initiatives [Mushroom, Sericulture, skilling]

Your continued support can help us to reach out to more villages and communities in Kerala.

The local community members participated in on ground planning process to identify areas and type of structures to be built. This will ensure sustainability and ownership of the structures. The community members are keenly looking to participate in the constructions phase and reap benefits sustained water availability for their families. The entire initiative has brought a sense of great hope and a belief of a better future for them and their children.
