Aapni Yojna aims to improve the health and living conditions of the target population. The main component of this project is a large regional water supply scheme complemented with community based resource management and sanitary measures.

Aapni Yojna covers an area of about 20,000 sq km in three districts of northern Rajasthan: Churu, Hanumangarh and Jhunjhunu. These districts are affected by a perennial shortage of drinking water, and the situation worsens during summer.

The Project encompasses technical measures like construction of infrastructure, treatment plants, pumping stations, reservoirs and laying pipeline. Extensive complementary measures to ensure sustainability and enhancement of benefits are implemented by the Community Participation Unit. This envisages constitution of water conservation, fair distribution of water, health education, women’s participation and sanitation measures.

The project has resulted in improved water supply service delivery mechanisms in 361 villages and 2 towns. It has also established a proper distribution and management system through community participation.
