Mynapoor ST Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“We used to keep the pots in queue and wait for the water to be availed from the common taps. Water availability was not stable, so sometimes we used to miss the chance to collect water and have to remain without the required
water at our home. We have to go long distances to bring water to our home so a lot of time is waster. We had made some approaches with government officials but they were unable to facilitate a change in our water source. We totally stopped making any approach and remained silent thinking that this was our fate. When NEWS made the visit to assess the need of water in our village we had developed greater hopes and as per hopes we availed the water and we are very happy and thank you very much Dan Hollings, House of Legends, and drop4drop. HAPPINESS and HEALTH IS ABOVE ALL, THANK YOU!”

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.
