As we eagerly await the arrival of monsoon in India this year, simultaneously we are also in great hurry to hand over to residents of Village Karanjpani and 3 other nearby hamlets their gift for the approaching rainy season.
Village Karanjpani and the surrounding hamlets have a population of 115 households, approx 500-600 individuals and the cattle they own. One of the existing water sources (can be seen in the attached slide), was a 5ft deep and roughly 4ft wide hole which carried water for slightly longer duration than the village well (dries up in February).The nearest city to these villages is Nasik (abot 100 kms away) in the western state of Maharashtra, India.
With Global Giving donations of US $ 1269 and US $ 300 contribution from villagers, this 5ft hole has been deepened to 20ft and widened to have a diameter of 18ft. (Photos in attached). Presently construction of the boundary wall of the new well to be is underway. Cost of constructing the boundary wall would be borne largely out of donations received from a private trust in Nasik city as funds from Global Giving are underway.
Work is progressing with pace so as to make best possible use of the approaching monsoon rains. We thank you for the generosity you show based on nothing but humanity.
