Providing potable drinking water to the Thakarwasti a tribal hamlet. We have implemented a water system allowing the village access to a safe water supply.

Narrative

There is a existing water storage tank of 10,000 ltrs capacity constructed by the govt. Earlier, during the water scarcity in summer, water was brought through tankers and was stored in this tank for domestic purposes. But the tank water was provided erractic once in 2-3 days and the timing was also not fixed. Therefore, the people had to wait whole day for the same.

Activity : Deepning of the existing well and laying down of underground DHP pipeline (500ft) from the well to the storage tank. Installation of electric pump has been done. Tap connections has been provided to the existing storage tank

Now the village community have sufficient water for drinking and domestic purposes.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

The remote and interior hamlets which are negelected / the benefits of the govt schemes are not received by the poor and the needy community. They deserve the external support like BPR to provide the very basic and the most important need of safe drinking water.
