PANAJI: Goa University (GU) is set to begin a water harvesting project in one of its adopted villages, Gudi Paroda in Quepem. Work is expected to begin in November.
Students of the department of political science at GU, mentored by Alaknand Sringare, have initiated the water harvesting proposal at Gudi Paroda, and deputy chief minister Chandrakant Kavalekar has agreed to support the project.
There are 500 to 600 students registered for the Swachh Bharat Student Internship from GU and affiliated colleges. They will extend their support to the water harvesting activity being carried out by the university under Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA).
Under UBA, activities being taken up by GU in its adopted villages are focused around solid waste management, organic farming, water harvesting, youth development, cleanliness drives, self-help groups and artisan empowerment.
Last week, around 200 students from two adopted villages of GU were taught to make solar lamps at a workshop organised by the varsity. The directorate of Unnat Bharat Abhiyan of GU had organised the workshop, which was attended by students from Government High School, Pale-Siridao and Damodar English School, Gudi Paroda.
UBA director Rajendra Gad said that the solar lamp kits distributed to students were of a robust design, having 8 to 10 years of usage, with a five-year warranty. Students were also given lessons in water harvesting and solid waste management.
