Water Conservation Efforts at VSPCA!

Water Conservation Efforts at VSPCA!

VSPCA’S Kindness Farm is considered an oasis in Koruvada’s drought-prone region. Over the last five years, this area has seen extreme and unpredictable weather which has resulted in both flooding and persistent drought along India’s east coast. Even though we have seen heavy rains each year, this land has been subjected to drought-like conditions for seven years in a row! We cannot expect this situation to ease in 2023 and beyond. 

Climate shifts have disrupted life for both animals and humans. The cyclones wreak havoc and the aftermath brings drought. Between 2016 and 2020, Kindness Farm or The Farm made headway with two grants received from an anonymous foundation. With their kind help and support, VSPCA began the process of perennial rainwater harvesting wherein we channel the water while building wells, rainwater pits, and overhead tanks in a modest planned implementation. We also laid the foundation for the kitchen, boundary, and sanitary facilities. 

The Farm is now more prepared and positioned to manage floods while also taking steps to conserve water all year round for the region’s animals and people. We are happy to announce that The Farm serves as a role model for adjacent state governments of Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, West Bengal, and Maharashtra. Officials from each of these states have made visits to The Farm to learn more about VSPCA’s water conservation techniques and approaches.

Our team at VSPCA owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Pradeep Kumar Nath, CEO and founder of VSPCA, Mr. J.V.V.V. Rajshekhar, manager at Kindness Farm, Mrs. Sarada Buddhiraju, manager at Main Shelter, Mrs. Mallika B., CFO of VSPCA, the entire staff of VSPCA, Kindness Farm, Main Shelter, and the people residing in the village of Koruvada.

We would also like to thank our partners Ms. Esther Geisser from NetAp Switzerland, Mr. Phil Wollen from Winsome Constance Kindness Trust Australia, Ms. Priya Tallam at VSPCA USA, and, Ms. Sophie Greger from Animals’ Angels Germany. Finally, we would like to thank the anonymous foundation for helping VSPCA establish and expand key projects related to water conservation, resources for animals and staff, animal protection, and strengthening the biodiversity model that Kindness Farms represents. Without their constant support, guidance, and well-wishes, VSPCA would not be where it is today.
