A total of approximately Rs.25 crores sponsorsí donations and Rs. 8 crores
villagersí contribution has been spent on this work so far.
The total annual net earnings of the villagers in 2019-20 was approx. Rs.
1300 crores and the same will be repeated & will continue
to grow year after
year This is in spite of drought like situations for the past 4 years. (We
have calculated the figures village-wise
so that the profits are not added
twice as could happen when you calculate check dam wise.)
Through all these 490 check dams we have seen time and again how the check dams bestow tremendous bounty upon the land and its people.
Every rupee invested in a
check dams comes back to the beneficiary society 400 times. That means
one rupee becomes 400 rupees. This is a one-time expense which keeps on
giving more with each subsequent year and can last for generations to
Our most expensive check
dam has cost Rs. 25 lakhs of sponsor's money and has transformed 7
villages with an approximate total population of 7000 people. Thus, per
person, we have spent a meagre sum of Rs. 357/-. This amount, once spent
will bring prosperity and abundance to seven villages for generations to
come !!!!. In fact, with little sustained maintenance done by the
villagers themselves, it becomes an eternal source of prosperity.
