Springs, Lives and Livelihoods

"Water is a belief that shapes the rituals of life". In the heart of the Central and Western Himalayan Region lies a precious water resource: Springs – the lifeline of hill communities. Yet, these vital springs are fading, threatened by multiple challenges. Enter Himmotthan, rekindling hope and setting an example with their Integrated Springshed Management Programmes. Teaming up with local communities, they're on a mission to revive over a 1000 springs. Beyond quenching thirst, this initiative breathes life into microclimates, nurturing livelihoods, and painting brighter horizons.

About Himmotthan

In 2001, Tata Trusts initiated Himmothan Pariyojana (HMP) to target the root causes of under development in the Central Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. Himmotthan, the associate organization which manages the Himmothan Pariyojana, has been working in the central Himalayan regions of Uttarakhand since 2007. The expansion of Himmotthan work beyond Central Himalayan region of Uttarakhand to Western Himalayan region is being seen as a natural growth of the organisation that has evolved through constant learning and incorporation of new ideas aimed towards the betterment of the rural communities. Himmotthan works in the state of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Leh region and is focused on working among the rural mountain communities by developing sustainable community owned enterprises linked to livestock, agriculture, non-timber forest produce, and intervening for better education, access to safe water, sanitation and energy.

Our Vision

Together with the partner organizations, Himmotthan is dedicated to the vision of building prosperous and self sustained mountain communities which live in harmony and sympathy with their natural surroundings.
