The USAID supported WEALS program in Jharkhand has developed a unique concept of SAFAL villages. The program works towards building resilience of the local communities.

Execution of simple approaches in form of on-farm water harvesting and provision of scientific information on farming practices have resulted in increasing productivity and incomes. There is a strong focus on building capacities of local communities and convergence with government schemes to make the impacts long lasting and sustainable.
