Original Query: Avani Mohan Singh, Haritika, Jhansi, UP
Posted on: 6th July 2005

I am Avani Mohan Singh, chief functionary of HARITIKA. The Haritika supports community participation efforts for the sound management of water resources, poverty eradication in the drought-prone Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

Haritika was established on 28th October 1994 under society act 1860. Since then we are engaged in the field of rural development and watershed development, health and water & sanitation, sustainable development in the needy villages, State project support unit, Bhopal under DPIP project, but we think, still we have not achieved the target as many villages are left want of such types of development activities. In the mean time, we are engaged in DPIP project funded by the World Bank in which we have achieved good results even in the adverse circumstances and hopefully will achieve the given target too in the right time. Now the progress of the work of the Haritika has been extended beyond expectation and lot of work is being done in several villages.

Dear members, please can any of you tell me if there is a directory of international funding agencies that can support NGOs like us in the noble cause of water conservation?"
