JALAYUKTA LATUR PROJECT
IMA, Latur with other NGOs have undertaken a unique JALAYUKTA LATUR PROJECT. We have received request for help for the same project through IMA – Maharashtra State office. Under this project widening of “MANJARA RIVER” has been undertaken by IMA, Latur & some other NGOs. The expected expenditure of the whole project is Rs. 7.5 crores. This project will help solve water shortage of Latur to a great extent.
IMA – Mumbai West Managing committee has decided unanimously to donate Rs. 5 lacs for JALAYUKTA LATUR PROJECT.
IMA, MW Managing Committee has decided to donate Rs.5 Lacs to NAAM Foundation. NAAM foundation has been started by Nana Patekar and Makarand Anaspure in September 2015. This has emerged after devastating conditions of drought & listening to agony of drought affected farmers in Maharashtra.
It is a movement with honest intentions to facilitate development of disadvantaged villages and lives of people which has now turned into a giant leap. Mission of NAAM foundation is to build sustainable & progressive society by facilitating development in rural areas by working on different issues like infrastructure, education, employment, food & so on. India would be superpower in coming years only if our villages get self-sufficient & developed.
