Obstruct the soil and let water seep in – was the slogan to revive the environment. And the impacts are there for all to see… multiple cropping is now possible for the farmers. Water in the wells increased and it is now sufficient for the village throughout the year. Since work is now available within the village, migration has reduced. Children go to school because families are more stable. The percentage of school attendance has increased. Pangra village shows development in all aspects like health, education and cleanliness.
The environment and the people both are being rejuvenated!
