Story

The project area is characterized by large Bhil and adivasi tribal populations, who depend on a degraded natural resource base and out-of-date agricultural technologies, which results in poor land productivity (5-8 times lower than state average), high water insecurity and poor food & livelihood security, Migration levels are high, literacy rates remain low and exploitative loaning by moneylenders is the norm.

Poor access to potable water is the main challenge. Women from the targeted 2000 dalit families spend 2-6 hours daily to collect water to meet various needs. However, the daily drudgery & lack of time prevents the women from spending quality & quantity time on furthering livelihood options, they have been trained in.
