Kothamarikuppam SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

‘I am T.KRITHIKA D/O THIRUPATHI of Kothamarikuppam SC Village privileged to thank and greet NEWS NGO, DROP4DROP, U.K. and KINDLY DONATED BY LEGEND HOLIDAYS & EVENTS who have sponsored a deep Borewell fitted with an Electrical Motor and a 2000 litre overhead tank to our Kothamarikuppam SC Village.
The main problem we used to suffer from is bringing water to our homes. Lots of time used to get wasted getting the water and we were not able to cook and send the children to schools on time. So, the teachers used to scold our children and our children most of the days were not able to complete their home works and used to fear to go to their schools. All these days our resort was the private pump set situated in the agriculture fields to fetch a few pots of water to our homes.
Now we have great relief and our children do not waste time bringing water as now we have water much nearer to our home. We are fetching water very fast and only a little time is taken to bring water. So, we are able to attend other works and also go on time to our casual labour work and are able to get our wages.
Thank you very much LEGEND HOLIDAYS & EVENTS, DROP4DROP, U.K. and 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.
