Gujarat Project year 2-3:  In years 2 and 3 of this project, our foundation has continued working through ARCH in providing villages grants to clear their land and build a tiering system allowing for water conservation.  The Farm-bunding work is proceeding in the villages and approximately 60,000 cubic meters of Farm-bunds protecting about 1,200 farms will be completed by June 2012. 

The following pictures are from the 2nd and 3rd year of the 5 year project and illustrate some of the work accomplished in the villages.

'Gandhikatha' by Narayanbhai Desai in Sankli village was organized during February 14 to 18. Hundreds of men-women from more than 30 villages participated in the 5 day program and listened to the story of Gandhi's life in simple Gujarati. They all enjoyed it and could relate it with their struggle.
