I am fundraising to bring clean water to rural India


water in Rural Villages of Dhanbad District, Jharkhand India is  too required.

The proposed project is to be located in Topchachi Block . It falls under the jurisdiction of Dhanbad Dist., of Jharkhand Baghmara is one of the Block of Dhanbad Dist. Jharkhand . has 300 Revenue Villages with 61 Panchayats. The Mandal jurisdiction is spread out in an area of 350 Sq.Kms. The total population of this Panchayat is 29,980 of which scheduled castes consists 12,900 and scheduled tribes 4,500. While the rest of the population are the other backward classes and forward castes. However these two are the vulnerable sections in the villages who often deprived of several amenities. Agriculture is the main occupation of people. When the tanks and water canals dry up. We have only to rely on bore-wells for irrigation and of short-term cultivation such as Vegetables, flowers, green leaves and the like.When underground water goes down, then even the bores dry up and thus the agricultural operations come to a stand still.The target communities of this project are scheduled caste, scheduled tribes and the backward classes of these societies who are mainly either the agriculture laborers or tenant farmers or marginal farmers having small land holdings, in any case not exceeding 3 acres.Since agriculture is absolutely a rain based and people are vulnerable and they do not find employment throughout the year. In such cases people usually migrate from one area to the other in search of employment. This problem of exodus also has a great negative impact on education of their children. The daily earnings from Agriculture are meager because the employment opportunities are less as the laborers are more. In any case the average income of a laborers does not exceed more than Rs.40/- per day. This situation also is one of the main reasons for the backwardness of the children in the field of education.

Rs.0 raised

Goal: Rs.500,000
