Thank you

Dear Patrons,

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

The construction of the jalkund (water harvesting structure) in 6 villages of Karlamunda block was successfully completed. Together with active participation of the local community members and your generous support, we worked to provide much needed access to water.

The area was marred by heavy rains during monsoon season and the water harvesting structures were able to withstand the heavy downpour.

This will help in recharging the ground water and improve soil moisture.

Your invaluable support will certainly help the impoverished community to face the future with dignity.

With Gratitude,

Indo-Global Social Service Society

  • The programme team organized five village level meetings for identifying water related issues and water conservation sites.
  • Identification of sand casting and siltation area for construction of multipurpose earthen check dam.

  • VDC members and technical expert visited proposed WHS and earthen check dam sites for measurement.
  • Analysis of land record done and discussion with revenue  department, soil conservation  department and Panchayati Raj Institutions have been completed.
  • A work calendar has been developed by the VDC members for excavation and construction of WHS and earthen check dam; and monitoring.

Dear Patrons,

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

The construction of the jalkund (water harvesting structure) in 6 villages of Karlamunda block is in its initial stage. Together with active participation of the local community members and your generous support, we are working to pull the vulnerable people out of this vicious cycle.

Along with the jalkund construction, we are simultaneously working to build the capacitating the local community regarding climate smart agriculture practice. So that once we are done with the construction, the community may minimize the rate of facing the similar problems of drought in future. Your continued support can help us to reach out to more villages and communities in Kalahandi district.

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,
