An NGO has helped tribal villagers by solving their water crisis. Aroehan has also helped improve health among women and kids and boost farm income.
In 1995, over 12,000 baby fatalities due to malnutrition were reported in Maharashtra’s Nandurbar district. Former chief secretary of state TK Shankaran intervened and established a field action initiative with the assistance of Mumbai’s Nirmala Niketan College of Social Work. Nitesh Mukane, the founder of the NGO, Aroehan, joined the initiative and resolved to find a workable solution.
After much hardwork and many trials, by 2012, they began irrigation operations to help seven farmers on 11 acres of land. They currently collaborate with over 1,000 farms.
