water project (1)

water project at Dand ( Igatpuri)

 Water provision at Village  – Dand,  Tehsil – Shahapur, District – Thane – 421602. 

The village is remotely located at 77 mtrs altitude above sea level and is surrounded by mountainous and forest terrain around it.  It has just 35 small houses/huts with total population of 165. The distance between proposed source of water  and  village is about 2 KM.

Village has  a single well  which fulfills their water needs  in monsoon seasons. After the rains this well totally dries up. During these hot days  girls of the village  reach to bottom of the hills where there is another stream/pond of water. Once the pots are filled, they have to dodge potent stones, dense forest and climb a steep gradient of  two  K M while balancing the pots on their heads in a blistering heat.

This project is aimed at bringing number of girls in a main tream of basic education by providing a water pipeline from bottem of the hill to Dand village. This will help overcome arduous physical task carried out by  girls of this village during looming summer and adjoining hot season. The villager  can then be supported and guided to  get their daughters to attend school for the time saved of this activity  The objective of this project is to support  and contribute for the well being of girls of  underdeveloped communities around us.

This is the first project we did  . we want to set up this type of project ten villages ,which are of the similar situation
