Water Conservation and Management Project at Danta Village

water conservationDanta village in Gegal gram panchayat of Ajmer district was facing worst water crisis for several years as wells, hand pumps, ponds, etc., all dried up owing to coming up of an industrial belt near the village.  As the people shelled out any amount between Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 for a tanker of water, the community members mounted pressure on the organisation to resolve their water problem.
