Deoli-Bramhagram panchayat, which is about seven kilometres from Guptkashi, has six villages.
On August 1, the NGO had adopted the area to help rebuild lives of its 191 devastated residents.

Today, the NGO decided to give Rs 1,000 per month to 300 more families of six villages in the area.
Uttarakhand’s Deoli-Bhanigram attained the infamous tag after massive devastation in Kedarnath valley in June this year.
Deoli-Bhanigram gram sabha lost its menfolk on June 17 when a glacial lake burst and flooded the Valley, rendering 34 women widows. Most of the men used to work around Kedarnath shrine to earn their livelihood.
Sulabh Sanitation Movement founder Bindeshwar Pathak launched a vocational training programme today for them in the village in Guptkashi under Rurdaprayag district.
The NGO opened training centre for the women, most of whom are widows, and few married girls in village. 12 computers and 25 sewing equipments have been arranged for local villagers.
The Sulabh founder visited the village to launch various programmes for employment of local people.
Vocational training in candle making, sewing, making diya-batti is being given to them beside giving them basic education and making them computer literate.
Pathak urged business houses to adopt at least one village of this devastated state.
