The HUF’s programme currently reaches 10,773 villages* in 38 districts in 8 states and 2 union territories across India in partnership with 16 NGO partners and multiple co-funders. The Company also supports several knowledge initiatives in water conservation, governance, and behavior change.
The community-centric approach in our programmes is instrumental in delivering sustainable water security outcomes. These include effective surface water conservation efforts in vulnerable districts, improvement in ground water levels, behaviour change in water use practices for water intensive crops like paddy and wheat. Here are some stories of impact from our programmes...
Building numeracy of water related outcomes is critical to activate large scale community involvement and measure programme outcomes. At HUF we measure indicators including the quantum of water potential created through conservation efforts, improvement in ground water levels, water saved through improved agricultural practices, benefits to farmers through yield and income improvement and effectiveness of community-led institutions on the governance of shared water assets. A robust protocol is adopted by partner NGOs to measure the outcomes of programmes.
HUF’s partner NGOs measure and track the impact of programmes on key indicators. These outcomes are validated through independent third-party audits. To view and download our annual assurance reports, click here.
