30 years is a long time-span for any institute, but the zeal and dedication with which the volunteers of ‘India’s 1st NGO engaged in water-distribution’ still runs very high. It used to be a sad fact that the farmers near the end of the water-canal received very little water, as the life-giving stream ran thin as it reached them. This social movement decided to alter the picture as the water-distribution criteria were rewritten and managed by the farmers themselves. This included the maintenance of infrastructure and recovery of water cess.
