Kalamanaidupeta SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“Iam S.NISHA D/O SIVAJI, we are very glad and thank LEGEND HOLIDAYS & EVENTS, DROP4DROP, U.K. and NEWS NGO for selecting our Kalamanaidupeta SC village.

We are not able to express our inner agony as we used to walk long distances to bring water to our home. The past available water source was inadequate and we were not able to use it for all of our needs. So, we had to bring it from distant places and lots of our time and energy used to be wasted.
We had approached the leaders and they could not help as the government funds were low and they were not able to provide the water needs.
On many days we used to curse ourselves and our situation as it was very grim.

When the NEWS NGO came to make the survey, we felt very happy and now we are able to enjoy sufficient water for all the people in our village and we thank LEGEND HOLIDAYS & EVENTS, DROP4DROP, UK through NEWS NGO, Uthukottai’.

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.
