Community led efforts bring well being in villages of Rajasthan

Sahyog Sansthan in Udaipur, Rajasthan India is a community based organization that primarily supports a grassroots network of Indigenous farmers in one of the driest regions of the country. Rooted in Gandhian thought, Sahyog promotes swaraj – or self reliance – as one of their key tenets, encouraging communities to become less dependent on markets, government, and NGOs. One of Sahyog’s key strategies is to organize local communities into collectives that serve as a vehicle for self-led programs. Sahyog’s work with such groups includes topics like water security, drought mitigation, revival of common pastureland, agroecology, and savings. The below photos capture some of Sahyog’s work in community-led development and ecological restoration over the past year.
