We've got a separate vehicle mounted bore machine for water harvesting so that it can be done on short notice.

Why Rain Water Harvesting?

Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) means collection and storage of rainwater. The collected rainwater can be stored for direct use or can be recharged into the groundwater. 

Benefits of rainwater Harvesting: 

» Quality of ground water improves. 

» Raises the water levels in wells and borewells that are drying up. 

» Mitigates the effect of drought and achieves drought proofing. 

» An ideal solution to water problem in areas having inadequate water
    resources. 

» Reduces the soil erosion as the surface runoff reduced. 

» Choking of storm water drains and flooding of roads decreases. 

» Saving of energy to lift groundwater. One meter in water levels saves about 0.40 kilo watt hour of electricity. 

Objective -

In the hydrological cycle (water cycle), rainwater is the primary source of water and rivers, lakes, ground water etc are secondary sources of water. The aim of Rainwater Harvesting is to mitigate losses through evaporation and seepage from the surface. Rainwater harvesting aims making optimum use of rain water at the place where it falls.

Vermiculture

Vermiculture or earthworm rearing is ancient method of soil up gradation by organic means without any use of Chemicals. Uthaan is propagating this system thru its work force of student. Small demo kits of Vermiculture having earthworms are installed in member schools to demonstrate & produce organic manure. This way system is propagated in Society.


Organic Cultivation

NGO thru its volunteers is contacting farmers to showcase the advantage of organic cultivation without the use of Chemical fertilizers & pesticides. We conduct farmers meet along with extension workers from Govt. office & present the facts to farmer. So far NGO is able to motivate good numbers of cultivators to opt for organic system of cultivation.
