Project Description

The key interventions undertaken under Project Boond by the Company seeks to:

  • Revive tanks in some parts of Kolar and Tumkur districts in Karnataka that brought increased revenue through fishery, and plantation of fruit-bearing trees along the bund and foreshore areas.
  • Projects to build indigenous structures such as ponds, wells, gabions, and cordoning off springs, so that more water is available for drinking, domestic purposes and livestock. These activities have also helped promote other sustainable livelihood activities such as horticulture and agriculture with the objective to reduce migration and mitigate the water related difficulties and challenges faced by the locals in Maharashtra.
  • Collaborated with M.S. Swaminathan research organization and started a project called Mahila Kissan Sashakthikaran Pariyojana in Wardha and Yavatmal, which was aimed at empowering farmers, especially women farmers by:
  • Setting-up soil testing labs in these regions
  • Starting a helpline to assist farmers in adopting superior farming practices.
  • Dissemination of audio – advisories.
  •  Created a unique phone based system which provided all information related to crop management.
  • Project covered 1773 farmers of which 1080 were women farmers.
  • The project also supports  several rain-water harvesting projects in Bharatpur
