Indira Nagar (Madharpakkam) Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“As soon as I used to get up I used to curse my poor condition and the poor availability of water in my village. Everyday we have to spend lots of time to bring the water to the home. The children were also engaged to assist in bringing the water and thus it was a great suffering for all us. We used to worry about the time and energy our children were wasting along with us to
bring home the water. Most of the days our children were not in a position to take bath. So they used to suffer skin problems. It was a dream for us that one fine day we would be availing adequate water source. HOUSE OF LEGENDS & TOMO, DROP4DROP and NEWS NGO have made our dreams come to reality. It is a miracle for us and our community”

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.
