An experiment in rural reshaping.
MANAVLOK is a Voluntary organization for socio-economic upliftment of the rural-poor, established in 1982 by Dr. Dwarkadas Lohiya, under Society Registration Act 1860.
We have four types of Self Help groups namely Krushak Panshayat, Bank Linkages, Micro Enterprises and HelpAge. MANAVLOK initiated many projects for farmers to uplift their socio-economic and formed Krushak Panchayat (Farmers‚Äô Club) during 1983.
We are the Maharashtra governments implementing partner of the GDGS (GalMukt Dharan GalYukt Shivar) scheme for the Beed district. The main objective of this scheme is to remove silt from the dried dams & spread it over nearby farms of farmers from that dam area so that it will help to restore the original water storage capacity of dams & to increase the soil fertility & crop production.
Water Accumulating Deep Trenches (WADTs) is a continuous replication activity of our success method or experiment on prevention of Water Scarcity at drought prone areas. In every village there are 2-3 streams or rivulets or brooks or rivers. Rain water in the brooks or rivulets or streams or rivers accumulates in the Dug WADTs and percolates underground.
