Watershed Initiative
MINDTREE has launched an Integrated Watershed Community Development (IWCD)  programme at Nanjangud in Karnataka’s Mysuru district. This is in partnership with National Agro Foundation (NAF), a Chennai-based NGO focused on sustainable rural development.
 
Designed to educate, empower, build and sustain communities, the initiative will benefit six villages and over 16,000 farmers. It will be delivered through various infrastructure and skilling initiatives – such as de-silting and deepening waterbodies, constructing dams, installing rain gauges, developing horticulture and forest plantations, setting up smart classrooms in rural schools and enabling dignified livelihood through Self-Help Groups (SHGs).
 
Through various skilling initiatives, it seeks to improve literacy, promote employment opportunities, and enhance technology adoption, enabling the communities to become more self-reliant.
