The Water Project



November 2017 story update.


Dear Donors,

On the outset, thank you all for the monetary support and well wishers.

Every now and then I read comments by some of the donors about
"Hope money is going to good cause" or "... going to right people".
"Has work been done?" etc, so I request everyone to look right ^ above this comment where you can view the tab "Updates". This will take you to the various updates for this project. As you scroll down search for 'Read more' to view previous updates other than the latest along with a timeline of those updates.

Thank you all so much for the support towards The Water Project! All contributions that have been collected will go towards whatever water solutions we can possibly offer the shelter which would include, digging of borewells, rain water harvest, storage facilities and logistical solutions. Do follow my updates for a monthly progress chart and timeline. 





Thank you all so much for the support towards the Water Project! The more we understand the needs of this Water project from both HOH and experts in this field, we believe that there is a possibility that most, if not all the funds collected till date would be required to facilitate a replenishing water supply solution and help eradicate the water woes that the mission has been facing for the past 4 years. 

Thank you for your continued support.

The Water Project: Phase 1
The mission has a property located near a lake, and had already commenced digging a borewell but unfortunately had to stop at a depth of 400 feet because of lack of funds. This re-digging of the borewell should be able to sustain their desire of accommodating 1000 people in the near future. 

His immediate need of the hour is to restart the digging of the borewell that would help the Homeless Shelter with water. 

I'm looking at raising 3 lakhs for this project

Let's help him so that he may continue helping others!

Update 11 - TWP

Dear Donors,

The work on the Over-Head Tank has been progressing and is nearing completion. We've had lots of delays with the setting and drying of cement because of the massive rains, but were able to finally get them done.

3rd week of October, 2017

Once the OHT is complete, the electricity board can be connected after inspection by officials. We'll begin work on rain water harvest recharge pit shortly at this same site to enable recharge of this borewell. Subsequently we need to check if piping and casing is required for the borewell after using a camera to probe and check the where the well was dug. If none of those are required, we would install a motor and should have this part of the project completed entirely by the 10th of November. (assuming there are no other delays).

POA next stage:
We've also procured material for Rain Water Harvest for the three different spaces that belong to the HOH shelter and work will commence by November 7th at these existing homes. First at the gents ward and later at women's & children's section. Our current plan is to build a sump at the men's ward which has the maximum flow of water during rains.

If we're blessed with rains as we had this year, this should bring them some respite in their water bills.

Thank you all and God bless.
