Title: India, Uttarakhand Mission, November 2020
Description: Bohrakot , uttrakhand

Trilok SIngh , 49 Bohrakot Village
Married with two children used to have to walk over 3km to get water . “ farming was impossible since there was hardly any water and the rain in this region is not enough to grow . Once the Watershed Management Directive funded by IFAD was implemented we built this water tank and our productivity has gone up. “. The tank provides water to seven families living in the village and they manage to grow vegetables like tomatoes, green peas and green capsicum , vegetables that were impossible to grow before the water tank was built in 2017.

“ We have also just put fish in the tank, i dont know what type of fish but some local variety , lets see if it takes. “
