Kummara Palle SC Colony, Andhra Pradesh
“Prior to the installation of this hand pump bore-well in our community, I have faced lot of problems, because the old water source of Government Overhead Tank is not fulfilling my family water needs, as the water comes from the said water tap is once in 3 days, just for 3-4 hours as per availability of the electricity. But at present we are not facing any problem for want of water, because the bore well supported by the generous donor is very much helpful for us. The water is available at any time. Even in the nights, the women are coming to this well, because the well is situated at mid place of our village.”
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.
