Choose a giving level


Thamirabarani River

This river flows through the Tirunelveli district, and the villagers from Packianathapuram rely heavily upon it for their agricultural needs. In recent years, drought has hit Tamil Nadu and local farmers have been hurt the most. _________________________________ Your contribution will help provide a center for community members to learn about new agricultural techniques, seek jobs, and remain informed about local policy.


Kaveri River

The Kaveri River flows through the southern states of India: Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. This river serves an extensive set of irrigation systems in the south and is the lifeblood of farmers in the region.


Narmada River

This river flows through central India, passing through the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. It forms a natural boundary between North and South India. It is also known as the "lifeline of Madhya Pradesh". _________________________________ About 50% of India's workforce is agriculturally based, producing crops like rice, sugarcane, tea, and coffee.


Brahmaputra River

This river originates in the Himalayas and flows through India, China, and Tibet. Over 100 million people inhabit its river delta and rely upon its annual flooding to bring in moisture and sediments for agricultural growth. _________________________________ Recent droughts in India have caused crop failure and caused farmers to seek livelihood elsewhere.


Yamuna River

Originating in the lower regions of the Himalayas, the Yamuna River travels through several states, including Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh. Over 50 million people depend on its waters. _________________________________ Without access to education and information, farmers have a tough time finding new sources of income or even protecting their way of life.


Ganges River

The National River of India, the Ganges River is one of the largest rivers in the world and is considered sacred to Hindus and a huge symbol for India. The Ganges originates in the Himalayas and provides a perennial source of irrigation for a large area of India. _________________________________ Villagers in Packianathapuram lack a central meeting space to learn about and discuss local policy changes that directly affect their way of life. In the face of the recent droughts, these farmers and villagers have asked us to provide this Community Center to serve as a central space to educate their people, gather information, and discuss major issues in the village. Your contribution, large or small, will make a difference in the lives of each of these people.
