AHMEDNAGAR: Women from each family from Taradgaon, a village in Jamkhed tehsil of Ahmednagar have joined the Sakal Media Group’s Tanisha Women’s Dignity Foundation. Taradgaon has become the first village in Maharashtra, where every woman is a Tanishka member.
The forum was launched a month ago under the leadership of the village sarpanch Bhagyashree Sanap, following which, various issues plaguing the village were discussed. Water scarcity, was the main issue discussed along with other topics. Members of the Tanishka Foundation and other women expressed the need to immediately desilt the well in the villages to solve the problem of water scarcity. Accordingly, the work was undertaken with financial help from the Sakal Relief Fund. This resulted in the well filling up during the first rains which hit the villages. Thus, the water issue was satisfactorily solved and women from the entire village thanked the Tanishka Foundation .
This was followed by existing Tanishka members deciding to enrol women from the entire village as members of the Tanishka Foundation and succeeded in doing so with the help of Sakal’s local reporter Vasant Sanap. The achievement was celebrated by the entire village with Tehsildar Rajendra Darade presenting identity cards to newly registered members of the forum in presence of Sakal’s Resident Editor Bal Bothe and Gramsevak Prashant Satpute. A woman each from 80 families, who became members of Tanishka, were presented with identity cards at a special function organised on Friday.
