Program Description

Uttara Kannada district is rich in biodiversity and yet has been facing a severe water scarcity for the past few years. Manuvikasa develops farm ponds, small tanks and helps farmers increase crop production through second crop and expansion of the agriculture area. So far, 1000 small tanks and farm ponds are developed and 2500 acres of land covered.

Manuvikasa builds at least 4 tanks in every village in places selected by farmers with the assistance of local water experts. Poor and needy farmers are selected for the project. An initial meeting is held and a suitable location is selected to dig the pond. The rejuvenation takes a month and the structure lasts for over 10 years with no maintenance.

The effort, time and cost needed for rejuvenation and construction are same and the tank sizes are a standard size of 30ft 30ft*9ft.
