Story
Impact

The Scheduled Tribe (ST) weaver community lives at the end of the village and had no access to water. The village has two borewells installed by the authorities but these families have to walk long distances to get water from those wells. The community faced a lot of hardships because of this. All the families of the community depend on the master weaver for the raw material for weaving. ASSIST decided to help by digging a borewell near the master weaver's house. This new borewell is utilized by 25 families for drinking and domestic use. The community is extremely happy as this reduces the physical labor of carrying water from long distances as well as let them use the time effectively in their livelihood activities.


About The Program

Drinking water is a basic need and yet, many poor families do not have access to this basic need. ASSIST, through this program works in providing accessible potable water to poor and marginalized communities in the rural areas of Prakasam, Guntur, Krishna, and Ranga Reddy districts in Andhra Pradesh. A comprehensive baseline survey of villages is conducted to assess the needs of the people. The program plans to provide bore-wells in places where the families have to walk long distances to fetch water. In addition to providing the bore-well, ASSIST's field staff also train the villagers to maintain and monitor the functioning of the bore-well. The complete cost of the borewell is borne through donations. The donation amount caters to the hand pump, cylinders and other consumables required for construction. When choosing to donate to this program, you will provide access to potable water to 25 families through one bore-well.
