Jayram actively involved himself with every aspect of the Water and Sanitation work being done by the Swades Foundation. He realised that unless his villagers adopted multiple techniques of water harvesting, their village will never be able to overcome its water scarcity. He educated and motivated his community to adopt different techniques like rainwater harvesting and spring condoning.
Jayram also formed the first All Men Self Help Group where he was nominated as the President. Jayaram now serves his community as the Sarpanch of his village.
