Conception 2017

This concept of water conservation and watershed development through peoples participation started in the year 2017 in Dhamangaon Village. Awareness campaign was under taken to create awareness among the farmers.

Execution 2018

The project was implemented in 2018. 14 crore liter surface water reservoir was created in the first year itself.

Pilot 2019

Leadership 2020

Expansion of this project to further villages requires trained leadership. 14 people were trained in 2020 for 9 months on the lines of the 'Landmark forum’ which is a personal development program. These trained leaders took responsibility for 5 villages each, therefore they are called 'Paach Patil'. They work without any remuneration. Work was expanded to 14 villages and a reservoir of 27 crore liters was created.
