Problem Identification

 

Members of Jal Shakti team visited the Hasampura village on 2nd Sept 2019 to have an idea about the existing water conservation activities undertaken by the villagers, water related problem which they are facing and to formulate strategies to deal with those problems. One day before the visit Sarpanch was informed and he was requested to inform the villagers about the Jal Shakti team visit. Villagers were asked to gather at a common place and the activity started with a discussion on present status of water in the village. During the discussion the problems identified related to water are: There is an acute problem of water in the village and there is no alternate resource except Nevta bandh. The villagers did not just face problems with respect to irrigation for agriculture but also experienced difficulties in arranging water for day to day activities. The water level in the village had depleted alarmingly over the years.

 

 

Villagers were found to be aware about the water scarcity in their village and they are facing it too but surprisingly not doing anything for water conservation. Male complained that women at home waste water a lot but women did not agreed to their statement. Although they are informed about water scarcity in Rajasthan through different media sources but not taking any step to resolve this problem due to lack of self-realization. Only two-three households were found to have installed the system of water harvesting. No further step was taken to renovate the traditional water bodies like wells, ponds etc.

 

 

Constitution of “Gram Jal Shakti Team” in Hasampura

 

A Gram Jal Shakti team of total seven members were constituted in Hasampura village on 2nd Sept 2019. Two women and three women from the village and two faculty members of IIS (deemed to be university, Jaipur), Dr. Alka Kataria and Ms. Archana Kumari were included in the team. Approval of the village Sarpanch was taken for the Gram Jal Shakti Team.

 

 

 

Expert Talk on Water Conservation

 

On 4th Sept 2019 an expert talk was organized in Hasanpura village. The expert was Dr. Alka Kataria, Assistant professor in the Department of Environment Science. She

began her talk with importance of water and scarcity of it especially in Rajasthan. She said that water conservation should begin from home itself and teaching the future generation about the value of every drop of water should be practiced in each household. She suggested few measures for saving water and appealed especially to women present there to practice those strategies at their home. She talked about the depletion of groundwater level in the village and suggested the villagers to save rain water through the technique of rainwater harvesting. She also suggested few techniques to farmers for using and storing rainwater efficiently for irrigation in their farms. Tree plantation on a huge scale was also suggested by the expert.

 

 

 

Poster making on Efficiency in utilization of water

 

A poster making competition was organized in government school of Hasampura on 6th Sept 2019. The purpose to organize this competition was to make children aware about the ways they can adopt in their day-to-day life for saving water by using it efficiently. Before making the poster children were explained by the students of IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur about how and when they generally waste water in their daily activities and how they can save water. It was very surprising to see that many students showed the ways of water being wasted in their surroundings through pictures or writing on paper.

On 9th Sept 2019 poster making competition on the same theme was organized in the IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur campus. 46 students participated in this activity and prepared meaningful posters and pasted in every classroom.

 

 

 

 

Oath taking on water conservation

 

Students, teachers as well as non-teaching staff members of government school of Hasampura took a pledge to conserve water. The aim of this activity was to educate children on the importance of water and the need to plant saplings. Emphasizing on

the significance of water conservation, the faculty of IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur and Principal of the school asserted that it was the need of the hour. The teachers advised the students to stop wasting water and motivate their family members, friends and other acquaintances to save it.

 

Slogan writing on “Ban use of Plastic”

 

The activity of Slogan writing on ban on single use plastic was organized in government school of Hasampura on 11th Sept 2019. To make the campus free from plastic it is very important to make the students aware about the harm to the environment caused by using plastic and encourage them to take initiatives in making their campus plastic free. Slogans on ban of single use plastic were written and displayed in each and every classroom by the students.

On 12th Sept 2019 slogan writting competition on the same theme was organized in the IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur campus.

 

Distribution of bags for collection of plastics from households

 

During the visit it was found that plastic has created havoc in Hasampura as there is no facility of common dumping area. The whole village is littered with plastics. Faculties and students of IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur tried to convince villagers for not throwing garbage in open areas but in the absence of garbage dumping area it cannot be possible. So as alternative villagers were given big plastic bags and were asked to dump their plastic waste in that bag so that the van from the university will come and collect the garbage once in a fortnight.

 

 

Documentary screening on “Ban use of Plastic”

 

On 14th sept 2019, documentary screening was done at Government School Hasanpura to promote ban on use of plastic.

 

Skit on Ban of single use plastic

 

Cattles roam the streets littered with garbage looking for food. As cows pick through piles of garbage, hunting for leftovers, they also consume plastic. Unsurprisingly, the biggest plastic pollutant digested by cows is plastic bags. The bits of plastic consumed build up in their internal organs, which make it difficult for cows to eat. As a result, milk production drops as does milk quality. Over time, the plastic consumption “sentences cattle to a slow and cruel death.

 

To sensitize the students towards this issue a skit was prepared and performed by students of government school under the guidance of students of IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur in the school campus on 14th September 2019.

LECTURE ON AVIAN CONSERVATION

4 January 2016

The degradation of the environment in the present times has affected all the living beings on this planet-whether human beings, fauna, flora and even the climate and the weather etc. In this degradation the humans have a large role as they have exploited the environment mindlessly leading to increasing levels of pollution, deforestation, mining of the resources leading to the depletion of the Ozone layer etc.  All these man made activities have resulted in alteration in the pattern of the cycle of nature and global warming etc. We with our actions have also adversely affected the animal and plant world by cutting down the forests and displacing both. In the rat-race of the time we have further become cold hearted towards the pains and agonies of the living world. On the festival of MakarSakranti, we fly kites and enjoy  mindlessly and have no concern for the avian world. Thus to make the people aware of the hard times that the birds face due to kite flying on the day of MakarSakranti and the careless attitude of the people to  pay no attention to the birds so injured with the glass coated Manjha, the Aavian conservation awareness lecture was organized on 4th January, 2016.  

The team of volunteers headed by RohitGangwal from RakshaOrganisation of Jaipur interacted with 140 NSS volunteers. The lecture was focused on the avian conservation in the light of the arrival of the festive season of Makar Sankranti. Mr. Gangwal told that the sky belongs to the birds and we encroach their space by flying kites just hampering their flights. So we should take care to not fly the kites between 6 to 8 in the morning and 4 to 7 in the evening. The second important point that he raised is to stop the use of glass coated maanja for flying kites as the birds get cuts and are injured and sometime loose their life too and are unable to fly forever. Thirdly he informed about the Bird-relief camp which this NGO would set up at 3 places in the city where the injured birds could be brought for treatment. And lastly he shared the helpline number through which a mere phone call would be enough on which a volunteer from Raksha would take the injured bid for treatment.

On his occasion it was decided that to hold a joint rally in the Mansarovar area on 8th January at 9.30 a.m.
