An appeal to Philanthrophists



   To Quench the trust of villagers”


 Anarde  Foundation is a well reputed and well recognised  name in the field of integrated Rural development activity all over India. Since last 15 years.

Rorary and Lions Clubs have also recognised  and encourage our activities by alloting us the projects and utilising our grass root level net works for upliftment  of the poor by donating us their generous donations.

Our motto is

Village water to remain village- Village youth to remain in village and village money is remain village.


To thrash out the drinking water problem of Arid regions in six districts in Saurashtra we have concrete proposal of water management . The models of which  have been  successfully  completed as under:-


1     Jamnagar district

       a    52 villages of  Oswal Jain community donations from non- 

             Gujarathis from UK, Canada and USA.

       B    10 villages of Mithapur area  donations from M/s Tata Chemicals.

       C     5 villages donations from M/s Bisleri.

        D    10 Villages donations from Chandaris Charitable  Foundation.


2     Rajkot Dist.      10 Vilages  donation from  CCF



3     Bhavnagar  Dist    15 villages donations from CCF.


4    Junagadh  dist    3 villages donations from CCF.


5    Amareli Dist   - 3 villages donations from CCF

6     Surendranagar dist  3 villages donations from CCF



From the successful experience of   solving the drinking water problem by deepending the village pond with the help of JCB machines we have obtained the expertise to work out  the schemes in above districts by multiplying our  experience which is as under shell form :-


By running JCB machines for 50 hours in a village pond having water spread area of  2000 sq,meters will be depen by average one mtr removing the silt quantity of 2000 Cumt. Thus increasing the storage capacity by 200000 lac ltrs


The running  cost of JCB machines for 50 hrs @ Rs 600 per hrs works out to Rs 30,000 , out of which Rs 15,000 will be borne by the beneficiaries i.e. the villages as their  contribution.


Thus by only donation of Rs,15,000/- the donor can quench the thrist one village of his choice in above 6 districts by deepending the village ponds,.This will raise the water tale in the surrounding well and escavated table  earth will be used for bunding the ponds, improving village roads or can be used in farms as fertilizers with good netrititus value.             

We appeal to lion hearted rotarians,lions and members of all philantrophic institute to joint the hands with us by giving a small donations of Rs,15,000

Per village. We will submit the complete MIS alongwith request letter from Gram Panchayat and thanking letter after  successful compketion of the work alongwith photographs and also the site visits can be arranged for the full satisfaction of the donors.
