 Conserve life and conserve water
Alamelamm a farm women was facing water problem in her 4 acres of land. She was growing paddy and jowar in rainy season. Productivity is dependent on rain and uncertain rain several time destroyed the crop. She was using more chemical fertilizers. Even then productivity of the land was less and moisture in the soil was also less. Manuvikasa planned to work on issues related to water conservation in drought prone area of the North Kanara District. We contacted Alamelamm in Feb 2008 for construction of rain water harvesting pit or farm pond. Alamelamm agreed to construct farm pond in her land MANUVIKASA provide partial finance assistance through government. The pond water is used for agriculture and animal husbandry. Now Alamelamma is expressing that her productivity of the land has increased due to the improved moisture of the soil. She also adopted organic farming in her land. She also is motivating other farmers to adopt water conservation measures in their land. Now she is getting two crops per annum.

Now Gayatri continues high school education and she is having confidence to achieve the goal. Her mother is joining to self-help group and making savings to support the education of the children.

 Distributing literacy
Amith Dodmani is Grade VII boy studying in Government Higher Primary school, Balesar of Siddapur, Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka. He is from a poor family and his father is unable to fulfill educational support expenses in the beginning of the academic year like, note books, pens, geometry box, graph and map books, stitching of uniforms, meals plate, school fee, sports expenses etc. Amith required at least 10 note books, graph, practical and map books. His father assured him that he would buy only 5 note books and all other books will be provided later. Amith was facing scarcity with note books and other supporting books to continue his education. He was having only one note book for the entire subject. Teachers asked him to bring 10 king size or 20 small size note books for all subjects. Manuvikasa come to know of this situation during women group meeting and schools visit. This organization helped him by giving him basic note books. His father spent the money meant for these basic note books towards map and other supportive books. Now he has all the learning materials and books and enjoying studies. His home work is up to date and he is getting appreciation from the teachers.
