“We used to bring water from the tap and only one hour the tap would deliver the water and we were not in a position to avail the water from the taps. So almost every day we used to walk one kilometre and used to bring the water on our head and hips. By the time we reach home, we used get exhausted and were not able to go for labour work and also to meet the needs of the children we were in great agony and the new water project in our areas has brought great relief and we are very happy. Our children and other inmates of the habitations convey their sincere regards to the drop4drop, UK for the support you have given through NEWS NGO. Thank you very much. We shall be happy to meet if you happen to come.”

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.
