MAJOR ACTIVITIES UNDERTAKEN BY THE TRUST DURING THE YEAR:

I. NABARD Supported Projects
 
3. Watershed Development: 

NCT is implementing 5 Watershed Development Projects in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
In Maharashtra watershed development programme has been successfully completed at Village Gondi Mohagaon in Katol Tehsil of Nagpur District under Indo German watershed Development project, supported by NABARD. The total area of the watershed covered was 971.64 hectors. NABARD entrusted the responsibility of RSO to WOTR. With the guidance of RSO, the community had completed the qualifying shramdan during 2008. Convincing the community for qualifying shramdan was a challenge for both PIA and RSO as the villagers did have the habit, experience and attitude for contributory work. The sanction of CBP was delayed as it took little more time for the community to complete the qualifying shramdan. CBP was sanctioned on 14/11/2008 for 147.95 hectors. An amount of Rs. 7.25 Lakhs was released by NABARD for the same. The community completed the CBP by 14/12/2009, utilizing 100% fund and contributed shramadan worth Rs. 1.49 Lakhs. The CBP was completed successfully and the quality of work done was highly satisfactory. A Village Watershed Committee (VWC) was formed with 15 members and an Samyukt Mahila Samittee (SMS) with 15 members. During the CBP phase various trainings and exposures were organized for the members of village watershed committee. Presently both VWC and SMS are registered with Joint Charity Commissioner, Nagpur. 

Full Implementation Phase (FIP) was sanctioned on 24/02/2010 for remaining 754.55 hectors for Rs. 50.66 Lakhs. The total sanction, release and utilization of funds up to 20/06/2015 are as under;
