About This Activity

Suvidha International Foundation, http://suvidhainternational.org has been adopting and empowering villages in India. Partnering with Overseas Volunteer for Better Projects, OVBI and International Association for Human Values, IAHV, Suvidha plans to go big into water poverty elimination projects in Telugu States in 2020.

Majority places in India including Telugu States rely on rain water for irrigation and are currently facing severe water crisis. This year Chennai ran out of water. Unless we come up with innovative solutions, 21 major cities in India will also run out of water next year and additional cities will join this list every year. Farming will also be significantly impacted if enough water is not available. Partnering with OVBI and other non-profits, Suvidha plans to eliminate water poverty in several villages in Telugu States by constructing check dams, recharge structures, farm ponds, afforestation, soaking pits, and other ways.

Please join the fundraising 5K/10k walk/run on Sat, Mar 14th at Maidu Park Roseville and support the cause.
