Construction of Water Tank in Progress at Belpali
We feel happy to be able to communicate with you yet again..............there are two brief yet exciting updates from the project sites.
(1) After 5 successful projects for enhancing access to water for tribals in western India - cleaning & deepening of 3 wells, cleaning of a pond and connection of the drinking water of a tribal residential hostel with village well, we are now on our 6th project at Village Belpali, Block Trimbakeshwar, District Nasik, Maharashtra State, India.
The two attached photographs 1 & 2, show construction of drinking water tank in progress and measurements underway for laying down of pipeline, the drinking water tank will be connected to the village well - resolving the drinking water crisis at village Belpali.
(2) In the last report we shared how clean rain water from the recent monsoon had filled up a pond in Village Kharset, which had been cleaned after 25 years. The photograph showed children enjoying a swim in it too. To add to this, we recently came to know that villagers have planted some fish seeds in the pond too. It is strongly expected that by Jan 2013 there would be well developed fish farming, serving as an income generation option for the villagers along with providing opportunities of improving daily meal intake (Photo 3)
