Help raise funds for water tankers for villages in Beed, Maharashtra

In May 2016, we help raise funds to the tune of Rs 3,00,000 to support the water crisis the farmers were facing in Beed. The money was used to supply water tankers to drought affected families in the region. Around 24,00,000 litres of water was provided to the families. The funds were given to two well known organisations, who work with farmers and lead many initiatives to change the farming economy.

Naam received a donation of Rs 2,00,000 from the Rotary E-Club of Mumbai Indians (ReCMI) and Lion Bridge India.
