Embassy of Israel and Mashav India, in collaboration with Jain Irrigation, has donated a family drip irrigation kit to Shaurya Foundation Trust in Haryana for the empowerment of persons with special needs.
This initiative was organised on the occasion of Good Deeds Day and to celebrate 30 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and India.
The drip irrigation kit will be used towards education and skill development of persons with special needs. This Israeli-invented technology will make them aware about smart agricultural technologies and water conservation. These skills will also help them in becoming self-sufficient for their future endeavours.

Plants were also donated on this occasion. The Embassy and Mashav India will provide technical know-how to the trainers of the Trust, who will then implement it on the ground. This will lead to optimal water usage and conservation in the area.
Highlighting the initiative, Orly Goldschmidt, Head of Public Diplomacy, Embassy of Israel in India said, “We couldn’t have found a better match than Shaurya Foundation Trust to partner on this International Good Deeds Day. I am really happy that we could play a small part in this important project, by offering them a drip irrigation system and allowing them to use it in order to give more skills to their people with special needs. Looking forward to seeing the fruits of this partnership.”
