Description

In order to increase the income of poor ST/PTG villagers and build their village level infrastructure, Citizens Foundation is implementing this program. Through this program, we are changing the income of the poor villager through income generating and infrastructure development activities. Besides our focus is also on the formation of user’s committees training of related users and infrastructure creation.

 

Our water harvesting structures have brought great relief to the people and as a result the production of wheat, mustard and different variety of vegetables have increased tremendously in the target areas providing them source for food and income generation.

 

Currently we are implementing this program in 8 districts of Jharkhand i.e. Gumla, Ramgarh, E. Singhbhum, Latehar, Bokaro, Seraikela-Kharsawan, Dumka and Hazaribagh covering 18 blocks and 97 villages. Till date we have constructed 292 structures consisting of Low land well, pond, lift irrigation, land leveling, homestead well and earthen dam.
