“Everyone in the village was happy to receive a pump. Women were complaining that most of the time they spent their time nursing children due to water borne diseases. Now they are happy to receive a pump in the village. Most of them are poor. They rely on farming for food and income. Hospitals are very far from the village making them face problems when they get sick. The roads are in bad condition causing more problems in movement.”

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.
