Grameen First Development Foundation was selected by MahaPECOnet and UNICEF to implement the CO-MARG project as a district leader for Palghar in 2021 – 2022. From that, we learned that we can play a role in the disaster management space. In our project area in Mokhada we see that Monsoons can be a serious challenge for many communities who live in remote difficult-to-reach villages. 

It was experience and learning from the Co-MARG project and attending the emergency response meetings held by the MahaPECOnet that inspired us to leverage our internal strengths and resources and direct them towards the Monsoon Preparedness project that we decided to implement in Mokhada.
