In India, over 63 million people living in rural areas have no access to clean water.
Rajima’s family lives in Tepari village in hills of Daringbadi in Odisha, India. It wasn’t until 2014 that the village was finally connected with a motor road that made it possible for the community to have easier access to the facilities and services in Daringbadi that they lack in the village.
Access to safe and clean water is the perennial problem in the village. The water they collected for drinking and washing purposes was contaminated and the residents didn’t know better than to drink it directly.
Rajima is happy to hear about the new water connection being installed by World Vision India. “This means I will no longer have to carry water in the morning and get late for school. I’m happy that we will have clean and safe water to drink right at our doorstep soon.”
A total of 345 men, women and children will soon have access to clean and safe drinking water in Tepari village. Gravity filter pumps and water storage tanks are being installed to ensure the project is successful.
The village residents has decided that everyone should contribute toward the construction of the water filter system and thereafter pay a little every month to add to the maintenance fees.
Rajima is excited to the day when the water construction will be completed. “I can now dream to accomplish more things and have the time to work towards it,” she said.
