Digging the fact that the well digging is going on well…

By posted by Ed, Uncategorized

I’m extremely happy to be able to share that we have started digging a well at Hunar Ghar. In our village all people take water from wells and hand pumps – there is no piped water or reservoir. Unfortunately we live in an extremely dry area, so outside of the three months of the monsoon and post-monsoon period there is water scarcity. This is very limiting in our desired to do agriculture with the children, not to mention Sakuribai and her team are required to bring water for 120 children each day from quite a long distance – no easy task.

The well at Hunar Ghar means we will be able to have clean water for using in the toilets, so children can wash themselves and their hands, bringing new levels of hygiene. We will be able to sustain all our fruit trees and flowers and vegetables through drip irrigation which is to be provided by the Rotary Club. It will also massively reduce the burden on Sakuribai to bring water, enabling the children to take on the role of greater responsibility in the care of their school by each class getting water from the well themselves. Lastly, construction will be easier and cheaper, as we won’t have to import water to mix the mud for walls. I’m also sure that exciting new possibilities will come up through ready access to water.

This will all be linked in with our rainwater harvesting system. We already capture a high amount of rainwater, and this capturing capacity will increase with the introduction of the well.

But why so? It’s down to three main things that I saw, realised, and understood when I was there last week… Read More
