  1. The objective of “Sustainable Development” can be achieved through sensible exploitation of natural resources. Water is the most precious natural resources. Scarcity of water is resulting into conflicts in the society; Latur of Maharashtra is the burning example. In its efforts to develop India’s First Smart Village on the concept of Retrofitting, Redevelopment, Green fields, e-Pan, Livelihood; Eco-needs Foundation has created water conservation structures at Dhanora. Overall ground water recharge through these structures including Nalla water conservation, percolation tank, farm pond, treated waste water recharge is 97.49 Million liters per year. let's join hands to save water, let's make people aware about the importance of water, let's join hands for our future. Let's come together for our coming generations.
