Welcome to Manthan Sanstha Kotri

Manthan works on diverse local issues related to Sustainable Development along with empowering marginalized and excluded communities in 120 villages of Ajmer, Nagaur and Jaipur districts, Rajasthan, India. These villages are water scarce due to declining groundwater and the proximity to the Sambhar Salt Lake characterized by the prevalence of brackish groundwater. Besides this major issue, communities also face severe social, economic, political and other environmental challenges.

Our vision is to bring about sustainable development by addressing basic needs through small practical works linked to new global knowledge on development

Our mission is to work with vulnerable, backward, marginalized and excluded communities of the areas to access the basic needs like water, energy, health, shelter, information and livelihood opportunities.

It wasn’t just Nisha’s life but of almost every girl in the village who wasn’t sent to school. People believed that girls should rather learn and perform household chores.
