Success Stories

Rebirth of village pond at Deorar !

When AROH Foundation initiated the work to rejuvenate the village pond at Deorar, the biggest challenge was coming from villagers, who were in practice of dumping trash, fossils and deads into the pond.

Extensive awareness, threats of legal action and community and administration participation were taken up as lever for change by AROH.

Scenario changed, winds were blowing positively and now the face of village pond is new. From being a dumping yard of the village, the pond is turned into hangout place for villagers. Policy, People and Participation is bringing in new change.
