Jhaubari, West Bengal, India
‘Before we were told of clean water coming to our village, we struggled with getting water from an open well. We would collect our water from an open well which we collected rainwater from. It was never clean and we always struggle to get water when there was no rain for long periods of time. We live in remote village, and this project will help us go to work and send our children to their education schooling without delay. The water is safe to drink, which means we will no longer get ill from dirt. Many thanks for this project.’
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.
