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.
Equitable and efficient sharing of water is essential in the rain-dependent dryland regions of India, like Marathwada. WOTR has been promoting village level water management in this region, in particular Jalna district, through water budgeting and water literacy. We are delighted to inform that Pune Mirror has covered this initiative and its positive effects in the Jalna district.
