Central government and NABARD have accepted the model of watershed project as national watershed programme of the country. Social Centre has helped 136 villages with more than one lakh hectares of land and a large number of people have been benefited by the watershed project inputs. For the last many years most of these villages hardly face drought or scarcity of water even in summer season of the year. This work is so sustainable that people are freed from the hardship and migration. It has helped many villagers to settle in their villages with gainful employment. Following is the profile of the works accomplished by Social Centre since its inception.
