Nagalapuram BC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“The longing for a water facility was a great dream for us. We never thought our dreams would come through in such a short period of time. Over the years it has been a great struggle and burden for our community. Now we are very happy and able to use clean water for all of our needs including bathing our children daily to combat skin disorders that were common in our community. All of the community members are happy with the new water facility. It’s a really great support for us especially our girl children are able to spend more time studying. They are happy to be relieved from the great burden of water collection and the pain of carrying water pots on their foreheads”

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.
