Citizens Foundation in partnership with UNDP is working in Sahebganj district for promoting alternative source of energy at the bank of Ganga River. Various components of projects are, construction of Bio Gas Plant, promotion of fodder, Travis installation, Poultry promotion, Conduction of animal health camp etc.

 

The projects’ primary objective is to improve the water quality and rejuvenation of the Ganga River through supporting ongoing efforts of the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation and the Government of Jharkhand to facilitate a shift from unsustainable to sustainable sanitation practices. The aim of the project is to improve the health and quality of life of around 45,000 househelds located in 78 villages of the Ganga river basin in Jharkhand through improved sanitation practices, while also improving the quality of waste water and storm water runoff flowing from the 78 villages into the river Ganga. Project initiatives will contribute towards creating an improved and sustainable solid and liquid waste management and will reduce contamination in the Ganga River caused from rural sources including agriculture.
