Pedda Bodhanam, Andhra Pradesh, India
‘Many thanks to drop4drop for helping us with this important gift of clean water. This hand pump bore-well is very much helpful to our entire community. Because before this well installation, we the women were faced many difficulties with water scarcity problem in our village, as the water supplying by the Government through small water tank was not sufficient to our village people. So we forced to go to the other village situated at 3KM from our village. It was taking us 4 hours in each day to walk on getting required water for our family needs every day. Now after installation of this well, we can easily pump up the water from the newly installed bore-well. No need spending much time like before. It is made easy to obtain water now. In addition to the water, our community is educated about important of hygiene, soap hand wash and healthy habits’.
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.
