Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

Water sustainability, in summer there is a shortage of water being the dry area, my project takes care of water re-use & the same water can be reused by proper senitation

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

If we if we use thick polythene in 2 feet inside the land we can reuse the water used for harvesting the crops, same water can be used for harvesting at other places & fused for cattle field.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Specify both the social and the environmental impact of your work

It can solve the water problems in dry areas & crops like rice which needs more water can be frequently taken from the same fields, moreover so many crops can be taken in one season.

Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?

This is not so costly plan, one thick polythene can be used for 2-3 years at least, initially it can be supported by subsidy by government

Unique value proposition: What makes your initiative innovative? How does your project differ from other organizations working in the same field?

I think this is the innovative plan as no other organisation is thinking this way to sustain water

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

This has helped us save much water & others started implementing the same
