It is a basic right to have safe drinking water for everyone on this earth. But
we and our government, mutually, had been ignoring this necessity. Now we are at
the verge of limited waters for ourselves, after polluting the natural resources.
Many villages have access to only highly polluted drinking waters as their underground
water tables has been contaminated by the polluted rivers, agricultural chemical
run off and dumping of wastes in water resources. These have given birth to water
borne diseases in the villages also hindering proper development in next generations.
Detailed village studies conducted by the organization have put these results forward.
To provide access to safe drinking waters for the village residents, we have been
approaching local authorities, but it’s taken too long pursuing them. Therefore,
in partnership with Water Collective, U.S.A., individual water filter systems have
been installed in every household of the two villages, namely Dabal and Morkuka
of the Meerut district. The filters of the system have also been replaced after
few months of regular usage. By conducting sabhas in the villages, a member of each
household was educated on importance of clean drinking waters and its impact on
In few other villages, overhead water tanks are being constructed by local authorities
and gram panchayats, to store and filter ground water for supply to every household
for drinking purposes.
