Donor agency : BESOM, United Kingdom.

Project Description:

sdw06We have identified 6 bore wells which are installed long back now become non-functional. A professional Bores mechanic is repaired these bores. We repaired all these 6 bores in the head works, 1 bore fixed with new hand pump.

We identified 4 needy villages where the people facing drinking water problem. Geologist of Kadapa District Head Quarters along with his team conducted geological survey and identified water points, where plenty of underground water deposits are available. And these water points are selected. We selected the sites where the people are living and be convenient for them.

While selecting the site for installation of drinking water bores, we have also kept in our mind that “these drinking water should be placed on raised ground at least 30 to 50 meters away from latrines, cattle kraals and refuse pits or other hallows in the ground so that contaminated water will not drain through the ground into the well”.

From 10 villages 10 youth volunteers were selected and imparted them training in minor repairs of borewell.
