Project Description

PRI’s initiative, “Samridhi”, in Behror, Rajasthan, which is being implemented by its partner, S. M. Sehgal Foundation, seeks to capture, conserve, and harvest rainwater with the construction of watershed structures; improve farm livelihoods to bring prosperity to more than 8,000 villagers through promotion of water-saving agriculture practices; and digital literacy and life skills education for youth. The project targets Goal 1 and Goal 6 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), i.e. ‘No Poverty’, and ‘Clean Water and Sanitation’, respectively.

Project Samridhi is an integrated three-year plan to benefit the five villages of Karoda, Antpura, Untoli, Banhad, and Maharajawas. It will create and rejuvenate ponds for surface water storage that can be used by communities for domestic, irrigation, and animal husbandry purposes; create groundwater recharge structures, viznala bunds and recharge wells; construct soak wells for wastewater management and groundwater recharge; promote water-saving irrigation practices; and facilitate digital literacy and life skills education classes. Community engagement will be an integral part of the project with continuous capacity building and training.
