“The installation of the hand pump bore-well in our village have resolved several issues. Earlier, I used to fill water from an agricultural farm bore-well located at 3KM away. Filling two utensils in two rounds took an hour as there are long queues in the mornings. It was too heavy to carry and there were days when I used to be late for my vegetables selling business. Water supply through this hand pump bore-well in our village has proved to be a boon. This time as I am able to concentrate well on my business,I am able to earn enough to maintain may family and I could clear my loans. I am free from interests. The water is clean and we can use it for everything — drinking, cooking, washing, and cleaning. Now I can take care of collecting water, and don’t have to disturb the kids in the morning. Life has changed tremendously. My whole hearted thanks to the donors Ed and Kimi.”

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.
