Project Description: 


The Kurlod-Botoshi watershed project is a joint collaboration between Aroehan, Siemens CSR and TDSC, which aims to increase water availability for both drinking and livelihood opportunities in the 13 habitations of Kurlod and Botoshi in Mokhada taluka. In this project, TDSC provided technical guidance towards planning, design and implementation of watershed interventions, Aroehan is managing the on-site implementation, and Siemens assisted with funding and overall steering.
