Project synopsis (A brief description of the technology and also indicating the past attempts if any, by the governmental and non-governmental agencies for spreading the proposed technology in the target area)
This project aims to establish roof-top rainwater Harvesting Technology for integrated application especially in development of kitchen garden for nutritional security in 5 villages of Bhilangana Valley of Bhilangana Block in Tehri District (Uttarakhand). It is a simple and low cost technology of roof rainwater harvesting through Ferrocement tanks. Although the land of the area is very fertile for cultivation of vegetable but due to water scarcity in the area, people could not cultivate vegetable for their own use as well as commercial purpose so their income could also be increased.

The Organization has already conducted a detailed baseline survey of this area in this regards and after analyzing the data it has been revealed that water scarcity is a major problem there and the people of that area are mostly facing this problem. The VO has also selected the beneficiaries during baseline survey.

The rainfall detail in proposed area for the year 2005 and 2006 is given as under.
