Clean Drinking Water

Water Wells, Safe and Clean Drinking Water

As reported in India millions of deaths each year due to water borne diseases and it accounts for one third of the global deaths due to disease spread by contaminated food and water. Most of the victims are children under five years of age, and diarrhea, followed by hepatitis account for water borne diseases in the country. The reasons for such a high toll due to water borne diseases are lack of clean drinking water, and food hygiene conditions etc.

In many rural areas, people have no alternative other than to drink water collected from open water sources such as open ditches, polluted river water, unsafe well water and dams often shared with their livestock. The rural communities do not have funds, education or technology to bring the water closer to them so the individual has to travel to the water supply which is often remote from where they live.

Women and children especially girl child spend on average a 3-4 hour round trip travelling daily including queuing time and bear the burden of collecting this contaminated water. Therefore we locate the water well closer to the individual and rural village household. This immediately impacts not only improvements to health but also a reduction in village household expenditure on health related issues.

From the Groups, a Committee is formed to involve in Community Mobilization, Campaigns, Implementation and Post Project Management and Maintenance. This committee is called Committee on safe water and sanitation.

During the year 2010, we started water well and Safe drinking water program in backward and drought hit areas. Where is a scarcity of drinking water in our target clusters we are providing bore wells new and repair, syntactic water tanks to poor and needy in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana States. The local people share manpower to providing as a local contribution. We have good experience in Digging the bore wells and providing the RO Systems and Small Filters for thirsty people.

Since then ‘Smile always’ provided Clean Drinking Water wells in the communities to ease the work of girl child and to give an opportunity to pursue their education. More than thousand girl child's and thousands of poor people benefitted through this programme.
