Problem

Agriculture is the mainstay of Indian economy where 70% of population is engaged.

Agriculture in turn depends on water which is increasingly becoming scarce in India and the planet with each passing year.

I have been struck by simplicity, honesty and hard work of village famers in Uttar Pradesh.

Small land holding farmers depend on rains or other large farmers for timely irrigation of their fields.

Failure of monsoons creates greater hardship.

Amidst hardships, farmers struggle with dignity and survive by sheer hard work.

Farmers are also not confident of sowing three crop cycles if they are not confident of continuous water supply.

Helping get reliable irrigation, can reduce farmers suffering, hence my project greendropsofjoy.
