Indirapuram SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

‘I am RAJESHWARI W/O DEENAIAH We take this opportunity to thank COLICCI, DROP4DROP U.K. and NEWS NGO for providing the water facility in our Indhirapuram SC village. In our village, we used to wait for the WATER LINEMAN to open the valve to supply the water every day. Within a short period, all of us used to quarrel and struggle to fetch few pots of water which is not sufficient and again we had to wait for the next time to get the water. Most of the time, we used to go long distances to mango orchards to fetch water and wash clothes once in a week. It was a great struggle and the children were not able to wear clean clothes. Now the new water project serves as a great blessing to all the people and we are very happy to see the water nearer to our homes. Thank you DROP4DROP U.K. and NEWS NGO.’

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.
