When drought struck in 2012, farmers could barely feed their families, let alone their livestock. Mann Deshi bused in the needed water and hosted both families and their livestock from surrounding villages.

For the next drought however, Mann Deshi has been preparing check dams ("bandaras") to connect lands to the nearby river.

We have already constructed four dams and irrigate over 35 square kilometers of land.

We will build four more bandaras in 2014-15 alone.
