Future Endeavour

In the area of district Awaran, 20 wells have been partially destroyed thereby affecting the provision of water for agriculture and consumption. These wells which are interconnected form a system that is called ‘Karaiz.’ The Eisaar Trust has decided to restore these wells on a priority basis; the approximate cost of this project is Rs 1,000,000/-. Funds are being collected for this development plan.
