Kar Sewa of Charan Ganga River Let at Sri Anandpur Sahib – From Baisakhi 2018 Onwards
The Anandpur Sahib Heritage Foundation proposes to invite Sant Baba Labh SinghJi (Kar Sewa Wale) of Kila Anandgarh Sahib and other social institutions to undertake the cleaning, desilting and channelisation of the historic riverlet Charan Ganga which flows to the North East of the Holy town. The present state of the Charan Ganga leaves the town vulnerable to seasonal flooding with over grown elephant grass posing a danger to the town with unhygienic conditions alongside the main habitations of the holy city. This KAR SEWA project will be undertaken within the guidelines and under the supervision of the District Administration & Drainage Deptt. of Punjab.
The Anandpur Sahib Heritage Foundation has conceptualised a programme to retrain rural women in traditional crafts such as weaving, pottery, shoe making, fabric dyeing and to undertake the marketing of products produced by this programme. An effort to involve a suitable NGO trained in skill development is underway. This is an ongoing project.
