Welcome To Hadi Grampanchayat
Towards Self-reliance Through Self-motivation
“Hadi gram” is a village located in the Kalaval creek in Malvan Taluka, Sindhu Durg district. A beautiful and picturesque village that was totally neglected. In the 80’s decade, the literacy rate in these regions of Kokan was really low. Adequate means of education were missing. Since Hadi was located in the middle of the Kalaval and the Kolamb creeks, it was isolated from Malvan and the neighboring Achra village.
Proper transportation and logistics were a challenge and regular necessities were also scarcely available. Roads were not developed to reach these regions and the progress was stalled. Due to lack of progress and opportunities, the villagers were poverty struck and this small village was cursed with a number of country liquor shops. Around 50 to 60 of these shops were operational on a large scale and most of the young and active members of every family were under the influence of this malpractice of consuming liquor. The worries of tomorrow kept troubling the entire village.
However, in the last 30 years, the village has almost transformed itself completely. Through self-reliance and self-motivation, the village has become famous for its journey towards being a progressive and self-reliant village in the region. This is the incredible story of how a village changed its image and its future through their own efforts.
