Suvidha International Organization
Suvidha International Foundation is a non-profit, educational, and humanitarian organization that is partnering with International Association for Human Values (IAHV) and Overseas Volunteers for Better India (OVBI) to empower villages in India–by educating children; providing leadership and vocational training for youth and women; instilling holistic health through yoga, meditation, and other healthy practices; creating awareness on personal health and hygiene; providing organic farming training to farmers; and implementing water conservation projects.
Why This is Important
A majority of places in India–including the Telugu States–are forced to rely on rain water for irrigation. Because of the lack of water, they have been facing severe water crises for many years. By partnering with OVBI and other non-profits, Suvidha International Organization has ambitions to eliminate water poverty in several villages in the Telugu States by constructing dams, checking on pre-existing dams, recharging structures, farming ponds, helping farmers afforest agricultural lands, and soaking pits.
Suvidha plans to invest one-third of its funds into each of these sectors: educational projects, water initiatives, and the rest for other activities
Suvidha has currently adopted one village (Astanagurthy in Khammam District) in Telangana and another village (Sammetavari Gudem in West Godavari District) in Andhra Pradesh. Aiming to help these villages for three to five years by introducing water poverty elimination projects and other selective service projects, Suvidha aims to alleviate their hardships.
