Madhanamjeri SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“We convey our gratitude for the water facility which is established in our village. Especially we are very thankful as the new water source is of great support to our family and basic livelihood. The water which was available before was supplied only for one hour in our village and it was not sufficient and we were suffering a lot. We used to walk long distances, carrying water on our heads and then had to attend to the cooking and washing of clothes. The children were not able to take a bath before they went to school and we were very worried and now we are very happy and are able to get the required water. We thank you very much. ”

Mrs. A Rasathi, age 27.

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.
