A Tale of a Village. The face and fate of the tiny hamlet of Purushwadi in the Sahyadri mountain ranges has changed completely thanks to the Watershed Development Programme. Success of the program can be attributed to the villagers participation in watershed related activities under the guidance of WOTR. Now that the balance of forest, soil and water has been restored the nature is blossoming in the village again.
