Padhirivedu ST Village, Tamil Nadu, India

“I am Ms. Manvizhi, age 24 years of PADHIRIVEDU ST Village privileged to thank and greet NEWS NGO, DROP4DROP, U.K. and kindly donated by BRYANSTON SCHOOLTHROUGH PURCHASES OF LIFE WATER, for a deep Borewell fitted with an Electrical Motor and a 2000 Liters Overhead Tank to our PADHIRIVEDU ST Village. In our village there is only one tap and we used to wait for the WATER LINEMAN to open the valve to supply the water. Within a short period, all of us used to quarrel and fetch very few pots which was not sufficient and again we had to wait for the next time to get the water. Most of the time we used to go long distances to open ponds to wash clothes once in a week and wait for few hours for the dresses to dry and return walking to our homes. It was a great struggle and the children were not able to wear clean and tidy dresses. Now the new water project serves as a great blessing to all the people and we are very happy to see the water nearer to our homes. THANK YOU, BRYANS SCHOOL THROUGH PURCHASES OF LIFE WATER, DROP4DROP, U.K. and NEWS NGO.”

Ms. Manvizhi, Community Member

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.
