Drip Irrigation, Dongripada
The region of Vada or Wada in the Thane district of Maharashtra has many small villages, two of which are by the name Dongripada and Palghar.
The farmers in these villages, for many years, had faced the trouble of not being able to grow more than one crop each year, causing income shortage, and thus migration to bigger cities. To prevent this, multiple entities, including Scan Packaging Private Limited (a fully owned subsidiary of Scan Holdings Private Limited) contributed to the cause. A simple act of providing the facility of drip irrigation has resulted in increased production of each crop and also farming of multiple crops round the year. The economic prosperity in the region has also motivated the community to set up other vocational professions, a gym for healthier lifestyle and a central hall for community living.
This project is fully run by Keshav Shrushti, a not-for-profit organization that stands tall as a hub of innovative and versatile educational, irrigational and social projects aimed at creating socially conscious leaders and dedicated citizens of the country.
