Clean toilets and safe drinking water for children

Dear Friends and Well wishers,

Thanks to you all for supporting this important effort!

In the last few months the project has been able to initiate support for another three schools and 120 children, with clean drinking water.   These schools have been provided with RO water filtration system, which provides safe drinking water.   While we have been working in the project villages for over 6 years now, we have been able to help each school where we work on a piece-meal basis.  Now with all your support, we have been able to help more schools that have had a dire need for renovation of the hygiene facility and ensure that each school has a proper drinking water facility. 

One of the schools the project has worked with recently is the Dharmapuram primary school.  Earlier, this school was using the ground water which was pumped into a tank to provide water supply for the children.  However since this was situated outside the school premises, there was considerable problems and adulteration of the water, making it unfit for drinking.   Now the project has fitted a new water tank on the school roof and a new RO water filtration unit inside the school with provides ample, clean drinking water for the 32+ children and the teacher who come to this school.  This is now a permanent solution for clean drinking water for all the upcoming school going children will come to this school in the future.

The project continues to maintain hygiene and sanitation facilities in six schools by providing cleaning supplies, appointing a person for the daily maintenance of the hygiene facilities and troubleshooting/ taking care of any repairs in an ongoing basis.   

Over 600 children are now benefiting daily from the project; they don’t have to worry about not having a clean toilet in school or not having running water and can feel safe that they have clean drinking water.  Thanks to all of you for making this possible!
