“They were at first using water from open wells which when the rain comes the water was getting dirty and was not good to use. People were very happy to have safe and clean water in the village for the first time. Smiles were all over the place for the pump given to them. The village is far from trading centres making the people find problems to trade their produce. There are no hospitals in the area which makes them also find problems when they get sick. They are thankful to drop4drop for giving them tree seed and some have already started transplanting into tubes.”

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.
