Since we had no other way, we used to make use of the same and this had caused health problems. Now we are very happy and also our situation has totally changed.

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.
