Chenchugudem Tribal Colony, Andhra Pradesh, India
“Prior to this well in our village, we used to have to fetch water from the other village 4 km away from our home. The daily grind made my husband late for his work, and we fell sick more often. Now after installation of this bore-well, we have an easy water source. Now we both i.e., me and my husband relieved our hardships and we are happy. Thanks to drop4drop for providing us with this water source. Now, my husband do not have any disturbance to his work and earning income. I am free from any tensions and anxieties of water related problems like last year. The Water Team is looking after this bore-well with good care. The Health Worker taught our village people about hygiene habits and particularly about importance of soap hand washing. Thanks to drop4drop for arranging this hygiene education programme also with water source.”
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.
