From the year 1979, our Organization has been working under various projects funded by Foreign agencies as well as by Government departments such as RWSS and PR till date. We normally work with the village communities and bills and other necessary financial arrangements are carried out through the Village Level Societies. From the year 2014, our organization has been working as a technical consultant of a government project funded by World Bank.
