Blanket Distribution at Khapa Nipani Village by CRTDP
Khapa (Nipani) is a remote village in rural Maharashtra, whose name literally translates to ‘village with no water’. The 250 villagers who call this home live with severe water shortages during the long dry summers. This problem is exacerbated by government rulings, which restrict them from digging or maintaining their wells or implementing any other water shedding interventions.
With winter coming in and night temperatures dropping, we delivered blankets here and in Sukli (Kalar) in partnership with CASA India, and took the opportunity to listen to the villagers' needs and challenges.
This is part of a longstanding and ongoing relationship where we work to help empower remote communities.
