I would like to refer to a one other good model which i came accross during my visit to Kharodi village, which is very near to Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s Village in Punjab. NRIs with the help of the state government, has laid the underground sewerage system here with a stablization tank and activated sludge system. With the availability of this underground sewerage system the whole village has been able to have household toilets and toilets in schools, hospitals and other public places. These examples can be propagated by the Ministery of Rural Development to NGOs and scoail organizations working in different parts of the country.
The VLIFe is dedicated to improve the living conditions in the villages of Punjab and to provide skill opportunity to become self reliant.
It is widely recognised that in the present day processes of development, people in rural areas are being “left behind”. Village Life Improvement Foundation helps directly and visibly those villages who want to help themselves to start a bottom up process of modernisation. Our focus is on integrated development of basic infrastructure facilities such as – Clean drinking water, modern sanitation facilities, appropriate training, education and a clean environment – so people can live healthy and productive lives.
Village Life Improvement Foundation was started in 2002 by Dr. Raghbir S Basi in conjunction with Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) abroad and Residents of India to initiate integrated sustainable development of village communities.
