Impact

People Impacted: 23340

People Getting Safe Drinking Water: 23340

The watershed will rejuvenate the water table for 4308 families in the project areas.

People Getting Other Benefits: 23340

All of the communities will benefit from the promotion of self-help based watershed development which contributes to improving living conditions and increasing income in rural areas. Watershed Development in India is considered as a strategic intervention for poverty reduction. This is especially so since over 70% of arable land in India is rainfed on which over 60% of rural India draws its subsistence from.
