  NGO Goals

 

 

The mission of the VSS is to bring back degraded forest area of 500 acres given in its care by the State Government. The goal is also build up the water table level through micro-dams which stop the water draining out of the forest and builds an alluvial soil bed for soaking.

  Achievements

 

2003-2005 - State govet assistance, AID funding started in 2005.
Sand brought by the brooks used to be smuggled and the VSS has completely prevented this with construction.

  Summary

 

Though the project has reached many of its goals, the livelihood program is well behind self sufficiency. A contributory cause of this has been high prevailing wages and shortage of workers. As a result, AID support has to be continued beyond the expected time. Also, cattle grazing and water issues with neighboring panchayat are an issue. Additional water works are needed and one dam needs complete remaking.

(This project has received 3 years of funding from both Cincinnati and San Diego to the tune of about $50,000. This year the funding will only be provided by San Diego).
