Mallavemula, Andhra Pradesh, India
“The existing water source of water tank was supplying water for us once in 3 days which is not sufficient for our community’s domestic needs. Whenever water scarcity in our village, collecting water from the other sources used to be a huge problem for the people in our village. Now we the women no longer have to spend hours collecting water as we got a hand pump bore-well at middle of our village. We will maintain this bore-well perfectly for a long time. Now we have more time saved, I am able to send my children to school in right time. The health and hygiene education programme also a very much useful for our good health. Our whole hearted thanks to the sponsor of this well and to drop4drop for solving our problem by providing us a bore-well. We pray for them.”
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.
