The Wasundhara Approach

Knowing what we know about poverty, climate change and resource scarcity, we have a responsibility to act. What is the most efficient and sustainable way forward? We began with the simple mission of using watershed development to empower the rural impoverished by uniting and organizing them around sharply felt, common crisis issues – land degradation and water scarcity. Watershed development is the basis of our approach. It is a straight forward ridge-to-valley approach that changes lives by reshaping landscapes and combating social injustices. We train village communities as well as NGOs across the country to re-form the land so it absorbs more water, leading to healthy ecosystems and higher, more sustainable crop output.
