Kamanuru Harijanawada, Andhra Pradesh

“We are grateful to South Gloucestershire and Stroud College & Chartwells who generously supported this drinking water bore-well. Prior to install this bore-well, our community people approached many times to the local Government officials and expressed the need for a new bore-well in our community. But they turned a deaf ear towards our repeated appeals saying helpless due to deficit budget. Now after installation of this bore-well our community people are happy as our drinking water problem is now solved. We will improve our social, educational, economical and health conditions through 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.
