Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Hyderabad

Total Budget: $50,000

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene

Sathakodu Watershed Project

Situated at the foothills of Nallamala RF.

Border village of both Prakasam and Palnadu districts.

528 families living in the village, out of which 187 belongs to SC and 213 BC.

All the above farmers are having land at the foothills and they are sloped lands.

As the lands are sloppy in nature, fertility soil on the top is getting washed away due to the velocity of runoff water during rains.

Lack of knowledge among the villagers on soil and moisture conservation and its importance.

Total village depending on ground water for their domestic and irrigation needs.

Ground water table is deteriorating year by year as there is mismatched management recharge versus withdrawal of ground water.

With all the above reasons, farming became uneconomical and people are migrating to another areas for their survival.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
