Water – the main Issue to improve Rural Development

Under Rural Development Program Save Our Earth Foundation (SOEF) is focusing on Water issue. Water is considered as the one of the major problem faced by the people in the rural areas. Foundation is working enthusiastically in Tonk, Rajasthan and the surrounding areas to overcome the water related issues like pure water supply, sanitation, and maintenance of natural water resources. Marginal people of the rural areas don’t have sanitary facilities and basic water supply facilities to do their daily activities. They don’t have the facility of safe water to drink that cause diseases, illness, infections and death. It is the dream of SOEF to give safe water to drink and adequate water supply in taps through tube wells or surface sources to each and every house in the underprivileged areas so that they can live a healthy life without any difficulty. If the people are healthy only then they are able to work, get education, and become active and responsible. SOEF has taken the responsibility to aware the people through various programs on safe water drinking also execute possible remedial measures to supply water through various water projects. 

Water for Irrigation

In most of the rural areas people don’t have much employment opportunities, almost 75-80% of people there are farmers and agriculture is the only source of income for them. SOEF is operational in these areas to give adequate water supply through tube wells and other water sources to the farmers for irrigation as it is their main source of income. Rainfall plays a significant role in suitability, productivity and adaptability of crops.

There are few resources for irrigation in the rural areas of Tonk, Rajasthan that is why irrigation depends on rainfall. Due to lack of rainfall irrigation is affecting a lot. SOEF has taken the initiative to improve the irrigation by extending irrigation coverage through a major, medium, minor irrigation schemes and ground water schemes and making existing irrigation network more effective and efficient. SOEF is working continuously to surmount these problems by providing new source of water supply for irrigation with the help of Government agencies and departments to enhance the agriculture production and increase the rural economy.
