Joydevpur, West Bengal

‘I am Puspa Das, wife of late Karuna Das. Though this area is known as a village but maximum people don’t have land to cultivation. Their main income source is working as labour in the different states of India. The people of Joydevpur many time requested Government to install deep tube-well in this location. But Government did not listen their prayer. Now we the people of this location will use this new source of water. Everyone believe that this water is safe for our health. Also this tube-well water will reduce all types of stomach troubles. This tube-well water will profitable for Joydevpur community people and school going children.’

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.
