“The new water project is of great support to our women and villagers as we are able to use them for day today activities. The old tank in our village is not working and we are not able to make use of them. We used to get water only 2 times in a week. The other days we have to go long distances to fetch water and now this situation has completely changed and we are able to get better water sources. The water is used for kitchen and hygiene purposes and thus our children are also safe and we are having better health situation. The children are making use of the water and time we used waste in bringing water has come down and we are thankful for the facility you have provided to us.”

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.
