11:24 am UTC

Once women resolve to do something, they get things done! Inhabitants from Shripatraywadi recently witnessed this. With the help from the local group of Tanishka Foundation, a silt excavation drive was conducted by the inhabitants. The drive was enormously successful as the participants ensured that there’s enough water for everyone for the entire year.

Sakal Relief Fund facilitated this dive through funding of INR 1.5 lakhs. Tanishkas then took help from villagers and initiated the silt excavation and canal widening process. Women from the age of five to 80 years actively participated in the initiative. Later, men also joined the movement. The activity which was started in May with people contributing their efforts every day. Representatives of different local organizations also participated in this movement. All these efforts resulted in widening and deepening of the canal of 2 km in length. Looking at the enormous active participation from the locals, Manavlok and Mahajan Trust from Mumbai sent one J.C.B and a Poklen to Shripatraywadi, which were later used to create a plane bottom for the canal in the area of 40 hectors.

This collaborative effort from Tanishkas and Sakal Relief Foundation has led to a facility that can accommodate a crore and 24 lakh liters of water. The population of the village is 800. The villagers require about three crores 84 lakh liters of water every year. The village currently has 30 wells, most of which are currently being fixed. For a person, 40 liters of water in a day water can be considered to be sufficient. The rest of the water can be used in agriculture.
