Nayara Energy has been continually working towards the socio-economic upliftment of the communities that includes 15 villages in Jamnagar and Devbhumi Dwarka district. We understand that the progress of a village needs a multi-pronged and inclusive approach that caters to all sections within the community. Therefore, we work with families across three thematic areas:
- Health & Sanitation
- Sustainable Livelihood
- Education & Skill Development
Our integrated water resource and development interventions have resulted in the creation of additional water storage capacity of 5.27 million cubic metres over the past 5 years. Initiatives like aquifer recharge, farm bund, farm pond de-silting and pond deepening increased irrigated area by 1800 hectares
Additionally, micro-irrigation techniques has been implemented in more than 1000 hectares of land , and has resulted in increased water use efficiency by 20 to 30%
To augment the family income across these villages, livestock management including breed improvement and cattle health-care have been effectively implemented. More than 20 Pashu Sakhis (women in the communities) are spearheading this change.
Harnessing Women Power through Micro-Enterprises
We believe that women need to be at the forefront of driving change in the communities. The micro-enterprises facilitated and supported by Nayara Energy is empowering these women in the community to make informed financial decisions for their households.
Our organization has established a Stitching Center specifically designed to empower women in Vadinar and nearby villages. To date, we have successfully trained over 700 women through our comprehensive 3-month basic course. The center equips these women with valuable skills in stitching, enabling them to create various products such as masks, clothing, bags, accessories, and more.
Not only are the women provided with gainful opportunities to learn and earn, our Stitching Center also serves as a platform for social interaction We believe in the transformative power of skill development, and our center aims to uplift these women by equipping them with valuable vocational skills.
The centre serves as an essential training ground, empowering women to gain financial independence and become self-sufficient. We are proud to be a part of their journey towards a brighter future.
