Dear Friends and Well wishers,

In the last three months, the project has continued to support a number of rural schools for hygiene and sanitation. Five schools are being supported for upkeep of hygiene facilities, and in provision of clean drinking water in the school premises. 

In the last few months, the project has also supported Kalpat Primary school for setting up their toilet facility and also for bringing running water inside the toilets. Recently the Panchayat had provided the school additional land, and therefore a new school building was constructed in a different location from where it was originally in the village.  The new school required toilet facility and also considerable work for bringing running water supply in the toilets. So the project took the efforts to make arrangements for placing pipelines, (a distance of 1/4km) from the main road where the water supply was available.  Overhead tanks were placed on over the school and the toilets so that water supply could be brought into the school.  All this took considerable time and effort!  The nearly 50 children of this school are very happy for the support of the project which has brought them these benefits. If not, there were no resources available, and children and teachers would have been dependent on nearby neighbors for water supply. 

Two of the school class rooms have also been provided with RO water filtration system, so that clean drinking water is available for the children and teachers.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support of this project!
