Background

While it is business as usual in NCR region, hustled 90 minutes away from Gurgaon, residents of Nuh (Formerly Mewat) district in Haryana are working hard to reclaim their livelihood and respect.

With a population of over 1 Million, Nuh is one of the 22 districts in the state of Haryana. The district is grappling with immense debt. So while the primary occupation is agriculture and animal husbandry, they are often forced to sell goods and services at lower costs which adversely hits the overall income. What the district can really use at this juncture is a revival of their numerous natural attractions to generate employment opportunities within the villages. With this in mind, the need of the hour is to recognize the potential of this district, educate the locals on various possibilities and help build a tourism model involving the inhabitants.

 

How it was started

In 2017, when the Donate an Hour team visited this district for the first time for conducting smart classes, they were dumbfounded by the beauty of the area and the potential of this place to become a popular tourist spot. Not the one to give up and someone who has always been driven about building upon a prospective idea, Team DoaR, quickly began talks with the authorities and got the consent of locals to start work on the initiative to rebuild the area.

Vision

Cleanup the villages to create better-living conditions for locals in the high-crime districts

Promote tourism and local craft to generate employment opportunities

Smart classes managed by volunteers to provide quality education to local students
