Jharkhand Jalchhajan Yojana (JJY)

JJY is being implemented by JSP in association with the Rural Development Department, Govt. of Jharkhand at Churchu & Dari block of Hazaribag District (Jharkhand). JSP has come across to eradicate issues related to Soil Erosion, Ground Water Level, Agriculture, Barren Lands, etc. In this context, many watershed structures have been constructed for resolving these issues such as; Trench Cum Bunds, Water Absorption Trenches, Staggered Contour Trenches, Field Bunding, Ponds, Earthen Check Dams, and Loose Boulder Structures. To date, JSP has conserved 442 Lakh liter of water through the effective Watershed Structures. With this, women are being empowered through the SHGs and other Community-Based Organizations. Farmer Producer Organizations are being promoted for achieving the objective of this project.
