Drinking Water Project in Rajasthan

One of the most serious problems in India is access to clean drinking water and sanitation. Nearly 226 million people in the Country do not have access to safe drinking water. 

If we compare water supply in rural and urban India, then half of the water supply is contaminated with toxic bacteria and in most of the rural areas even people do not have this option to enjoy. They have to walk mile during brutal cold, summer and spring to collect water for their household use and they do not have an idea the water that seems transparent is safe to consume or not.

To culminate this problem in the Bhanskadi Village in Jhalwar District of Rajasthan, we at the Rehab India Foundation installed hand pump for public use. 

Looking Back:

Earlier, there were two hand pumps in the village. Among them, one was not functioning. And, 300 families were dependent on one hand pump which was not sufficient. People had to queue for long to store water for drinking and household use. To curb the problem, Rehab installed another hand pump in the village.
