There is an urgent need to create mechanisms to empower widows in Yavatmal and Vidarbha, and give them the support they need to pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward. However, such initiatives are rare. One of the few such projects for the welfare of the helpless women is run by Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR) and its sister organization Sampada Trust.
We are delighted to inform you that WOTRIndia's Deputy General Manager, Harish Daware, has been engaged in capacity building and technical training on watershed development in #Malawi, in southeastern Africa. These training sessions to officials of the Emmanuel International Ministry, an NGO in Malawi and those in Department of Land Resource Conservation took place between April 22 and 26, 2019. The village of Khole, where these concepts taught by WOTR- Watershed Organisation Trust have been employed, has emerged as a model village and is inspiring other projects in the region, like those in Chivalo and Machhinga.
Such joint efforts are also critical in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) like, SDG2 - agriculture and food security, SDG6 sustainable water management, SDG13 combating #climatechange (esp. adaptation) and SDG17 - global partnerships for sustainable development.
