Part Sponsor the cost of constructing a gabion to help strengthen a check dam, INR 13900

Over the past 2 decades, Sanskriti Samvardhan Mandal is running a project in Soil and Water Conservation called 'Watershed Development Program’. The NGO has taken the responsibility to support and reconstruct the check dams.

How It Works

• Farmers who own land beside the dams are the beneficiaries.
• A team of volunteers from the NGO initially conducts surveys on old check dams in the villages and find out how many beneficiaries can be covered under a repaired check dam.
• The water from the check dam is supplied for irrigation in the agricultural land. This helps farmers to cultivate better yields and also helps replenish the water in their wells.
• The Government has constructed numerous check dams in rural areas long ago. However, those dams are now non-operational due to lack of maintenance.
• The Government has no provision to renovate and restore the dams.
• Restoring a dam can benefit at least 10 farmers and help to improve their livelihood.

The Statistics

• The NGO works in 16 villages of 2 blocks in Nanded district.

Water to drink
The check dams already constructed by the government were defunct. Those check dams not only ruin cost of construction but also water availability in the villages. The check dams were good for nothing.
Sanskriti Samvardhan Mandal took initiative and conducted survey on such structures. SSM came up with an idea to build gabion structures in the dams. All such defunct dams were repaired with a gabion structure.
This has resulted very positively. The gabion structure helped check dams function well and store maximum water in it. Eventually, the water level and availability increased in the villages. All the wells restored. It helped villagers in many ways to improve their livelihood.
