Allipukulam SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

‘I am Mrs. Abina (21 years old) W/o Mr. Ajithkumar we are very glad and thank HOUSE OF LEGENDS and DROP4DROP for selecting our Allipukulam SC Village. We are not able to express our inner agony as we used to walk long distances to bring water to our home. The previously available water source was very low and we were not able to use it for all the needs. So we had to collect water from distant places and lots of time and energy was wasted. We had made some approaches with the leaders and they could not fix this problem as the government funding was very low. So many days we used to curse ourselves and also our situation was very grim. When the NEWS NGO came to make survey we became very happy and now we are able to sufficient water for all the people in our village and we thank HOUSE OF LEGENDS, DROP4DROP,U.K. through NEWS NGO. HEALTH. FAMILY. HAPPINESS.’

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
