    Families of Nangal Chandel and Daroga Wala villages

    from Alwar, Rajasthan

‘We can change ‘tomorrow’ if we start ‘today’.

Water table at 225 and 300 feet respectively, ‘Nangal Chandel’ and Kakrali Rampura are small villages in Alwar district of Rajasthan suffering acute water scarcity.

Water scarcity disturbs crucial sources of rural livelihood. In the absence of water for irrigation, agriculture land remains uncultivated and there is very low production/ animal due to lack of green fodder & sufficient drinking water for animals. 

‘Nangal Chandel’ and Kakrali Rampura villages of Alwar, Rajasthan are no exceptions. At present, in these villages only about ~13% agriculture area is under farming. The annual average income from the traditional jobs is below Rs. 20,000. Poverty, scarcity and uncertainty are all over the villages.

Loss of traditional livelihood pushes people to migrate to other areas as daily wage laborers for myriad of unsafe jobs and snatches educational opportunities from children forcing them towards a miserable life. It's the women and girls of the village who bear the brunt of the situation and bear entire responsibility to step out to fetch water from far away areas to feed the needs of the entire family.

Good part is this condition can be reversed. The root cause behind this grave situation is the loss of traditional rainwater conservation practices and disappearance of traditional rain water holding structures from the landscape. Creation of sufficient water storage capacity in the village via creation of low cost traditional water holding structures is one such solution.

Monsoon is still a few months away. Aarangar Environment Action Foundation (AEAF) aims to utilize this time to create water storage capacities in the dry villages in the area to bring about positive change post monsoon. We propose to create Johads (a type of pond) in Nangal Chandel and Kakrali Rampura villages.

The proposed water bodies will positively impact 321 families of three villages - ‘Nangal Chandel’, ‘Daroga wala’ and Kakrali Rampura. The interventions will recharge about 31 dry wells and 6 hand pumps in these villages.

The work will be carried out with community participation and will cost Rs.2,90,758.

We urge you to donate generously in order to enable us to create the water body in the two villages. 

We will keep updating photos and videos so that you can track the progress of the work and see the impact on the landscape and on the lives of people of village.

Please note that 'Aarangar Environment Action Foundation' is a registered non-profit organization. We are new and aim to carry out interventions with high positive impact on environment, rural prosperity and local livelihood generation. A detailed audit of expenses for donors will be provided at request.
