The film describes the impact of the project “Increased water harvesting and diminished desertification launched by DHAN Foundation in association with European Union and Oxfam Novib, Netherlands for renovating irrigation tanks. The film details the water scarcity problems in Ramnad District of Tamil Nadu. Failure of monsoon and continuous drought leads to desertification, unavailability of water to agriculture and domestic needs of the people. So the people migrate to somewhere for their survival. In this situation, DHAN Foundation joined hands with EU and initiated renovation of water resources (tanks, ponds and ooranis) with people contribution by organising local communities around water bodies to overcome water scarcity problems.
