Thank you very much for all the donations. AWARD Pakistan has taken an initiative to raise funds for the installation of hand pumps and water wells. The first phase of installing the 3 water wells and 1 water hand-pump has been successfully over and the dedicated team of AWARD Pakistan is in communication with the community members.
Unfortunately , the donations for this project have declined seriously during the last year. The amount collected during the last two quarters is not enough to initiate a water well or a handpump as the process is pretty much costly in the mountainous areas. We are trying our best to engage our supporters so that we can start installing a water well in other areas too. The access to the areas due to heavy snowfall has been blocked. AWARD Pakistan’s Regional Coordinator Mr. Mustafa is in contact with the community of the 4 areas (Jageer and Grang Maidaan, Shawaal Maidaan and Baisiyaan).
The beneficiaries are satisfied and they are using this provided facility with great responsibility. The communities have promised to protect the facility at any cost. We hope to raise enough funds to start installing the water wells again in the next quarter in the new areas.
AWARD wants to initiate this project in other far flung areas therefore, we request all our donors and supporters to donate us for this cause to provide children and women (living on the mountains), an access to the carbon-free and safe drinking water.

3rd report on Clean Drinking Water for Punjab
By Azeem Christopher - Team Leader
Thank you very much for all your donations. AWARD Pakistan has taken an initiative to raise funds for the installation of 3 RO water treatment plants to provide clean drinking water in the 3 villages of Punjab with the support of the local community.
The donations to this project in the recent project has declined due to some reason. So far the project has been able to manage 187 USD. We are trying to engage our supporters to get more donations so that we can start installing RO Plants as soon as possible
AWARD Pakistan’s team is regularly visiting the 3 areas and trying to engage the communities in this regard. The staff has not promised the RO plant to the community yet as the amount collected is not sufficient enough. Once the target will be near to achieve, the staff will inform the community about the intervention and the activities associated with it.
We have seen decline in the donations from the past two quarters therefore , We would like to request all our donors and supporters to donate us for this cause to provide children and women an access to safe drinking water.
