Dates: November 2021 – October 2022

 Total Budget: Rs. 3,50,885

2022 Budget: Rs. 3,50,885

During this project, SPREAWS was able to complete the installation of three hand-pump borewells, one in each of 3 remote and hilly villages in the Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh within a short period of 2 months. These bore-wells are helping provide the villages with an easier access to get clean drinking water instead of the women and children having to walk 2-3 miles per trip to fetch impure water from a river or an open well. Providing sustainable drinking water facilities to this community will not only improve health and economic conditions but also help young girls and boys to attend school more regularly.

The villagers have also been guided to create Water User Committees in the villages to maintain the bore-wells in their own villages with their own local funds. In addition, a local health worker was utilized to teach good hygiene practices to minimize the spread of water-borne and food-borne diseases.
