Support me to make Nagapattinam a #WaterSuplusDelta
Dreams Alive supports Farmers of Nagapattinam through a project called HiFi (Help in Farmers Interests).
Farming is the backbone of our Nation. There has been lot of Farmer Suicides due in failure in farming resulting from Droughts and floods. Nagapattinam is one of the worst affected districts due to natural distastes (Tsunami, Gaja Cyclone & droughts).
Dreams Alive has identified 40 different ponds from each Panchayat.
Chennai floods made us understand the importance of water bodies, its time we act on preserving it.
As a part of our Project HiFi (Help in Farmers interest), we are trying to assist the villagers and farmers in their efforts to restore the ponds in Delta Region of Tamil Nadu, which was highly affected due to the recent Gaja Cyclone.
Delta region is one of the most important area for Agriculture in Tamil Nadu. In order to preserve the region and to rebuild hope in the people of Nagapattinam towards the importance of Agriculture, we have taken this step.
The pond is the prime water source for cattle, homes, trees, birds, wild and domestic animals. To increase water for farming, the restoring of water bodies is the need of the hour to impact people of Nagapattinam, who are employed mostly in sea-borne trading, fishing, and agriculture.
To be with the people of Delta Region in this testing times post-cyclone, Gaja, and also to bring in all likeminded people, social workers, NGOs, Corporate CSR, students, millennial and philanthropists, various foundations and industry forums to comprehensively develop and restore water bodies and show this as a development project model to the world.
The objective is to improve the livelihood of farmers and create it as an example district to learn from.
Restoration of these ponds will:
• Act as water storage
• Provide drinking water for all the villagers
• Improve ground water level and help to feed thirsty animals and birds.
