Water Conservation : Check Dams
On 14th October 2019 we constructed 5 Vanrai bunds along with the farmers at Plotpada, Village Medhe, Tal Vasai Palghar, Maharastra.
We tried understand and analyse the problems faced by the residents and invited them to join hands with us.
We filled cement bags with sand and deposited them on the banks of the streams in the village. At some points we restructured loose boulders to ensure they stop the flow and hold water.
The ‘Vanrai Bunds’ will be useful for agriculture, animal husbandry as well as increase percolation of water into the ground so as to keep the level of water in the village wells at a substantial level.
Low Cost Housing : Houses for Villagers
As an implementing agency for housing, we have facilitated the construction of a large number of low-cost houses in various parts of the country.
As a mediator, we have made available loans / subsidies to beneficiaries from various funding agencies like NABARD, Bank of Baroda, SIDBI, and Habitat for Humanity and Govt. of India’s schemes.
Our specially designed low cost houses provide rural poor with a pucca and proper housing meeting one of the most important and basic needs – a secure shelter.
Most of our rural communities do not have a proper house. Building a pucca house for them ensures a shelter against all outside elements and keeps them safe and secure.
Low Cost Sanitation : School Blocks
School sanitation project from SUZUKI Motor Gujarat Private Limited, Gujarat Anarde have planned to construct 7 sanitation units at Mehsana district at Gujarat.
Out of these 7 school sanitation units 2 school units were taken up for construction at in Finchadi and Hansalpur school.
Advantages of such sanitation blocks ensure children do not fall sick, attend school and costs from illness are saved.
Low Cost Sanitation : Individual Toilets
Anarde Foundation has developed a unique model for Individual Household Toilets. This model is equipped with a dedicated tank with water and a washing area to encourage clean sanitation. Other features include tiles, taps, door and ventilation.
